Kevin Costner Will Tour to Promote His Country Album

Actor-director Kevin Costner and the band, Modern West, will release a country album, Unknown Truths, on Nov. 11. Costner wrote or co-wrote all 12 tracks for the album to be released by Universal Republic/Universal Records South. The band’s history dates back to the ’80s when Costner met musician John Coinman during an acting workshop in Los Angeles. They began playing and writing music together and formed a band called Roving Boy. As Costner’s acting career progressed, he was unable to devote as much time to the band, although he and several of the musicians continued to write and record music. Costner and Modern West will begin touring later this year to promote the album.
