Six Artists Who Need to Comeback in 2022

Country music has had many artists come and go over the years, and the desire for new music from many artists remains, even after years of silence or after the artist changes genres. Regardless of where these artists are at in their careers, they are all due (or maybe even overdue) to release new music.

1. The Band Perry

The Band Perry has been on one of the more interesting artist journeys that have taken place in recent years. After their successful album Pioneer, The Band Perry dove into pop music in 2015 with their single “Live Forever” and was gearing up for the release of their third album. After poor reception from fans, that album was never released and they changed labels from Big Machine Label Group to Interscope Records. The band released two singles with them before parting ways and going in a different direction musically. In 2018 and 2019, the group toured and independently released an EP and two singles that were in the pop/indie-pop genres but then they disappeared. There have been clues on social media that The Band Perry is gearing up for a return to country music including pictures of them writing with their previous collaborators The Henningsens, their social media pages have been cleared, they relaunched their website to only feature their country songs, and there were recent pictures on Twitter of them performing at a showcase at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville. Fans have been commenting on their posts for years asking for them to return to the country genre, could 2022 be the year that their wish comes true?

2. Sugarland

Fans went wild at Sugarland’s first public appearance as a duo in five years at the 2017 CMA Awards and became even more ecstatic when the duo confirmed that new music was in the works. 2017 and 2018 were whirlwind years for Sugarland fans. Those years included high-profile performances, two major singles (“Still the Same” and “Babe”), their first album in eight years (Bigger), and a tour to top it all off. They continued to play shows in 2019 and things seemed to be heading in the direction of a new album and tour in 2020. The group went as far as to announce the ‘There Goes The Neighborhood Tour,’ which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the video that announced the tour’s cancellation, they confirmed that new music was still on the way; however, new music never surfaced and both members have been busy with other ventures. Hopefully, Sugarland has more in store for fans in the new year.
