Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett and Dolly Parton are just three artists with new country albums slated for 2022. Expect a quick start, with several newcomers, a rocker and two veteran hitmakers releasing new titles in January and February.
The first three months of any given year are usually slow, but that may not be the case with new country albums in 2022. Joe Nichols and Walker Hayes are on the country charts with full albums planned. Additionally, country duo Maddie & Tae have an upcoming EP, and the Osborne brothers are adding to their announced album from last year. There will be a lot of great country music to stream or download very soon.
New albums will be added to this list as soon as they are announced. Two confirmed but TBD albums by Thomas Rhett can be found at the bottom, but we’ve also heard rumors of new albums from Luke Combs, Maren Morris and Miranda Lambert. If those are announced, you’ll find them on this updated list of new country albums from 2022.
