Alexander Ludwig’s self-titled debut EP, due out May 21 via BBR Music Group/BMG, is the sound of a longtime musician staking his claim in the genre that’s always inspired him. Produced by fellow Nashville based songwriters Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy (both members of Jason Aldean’s band), Alexander Ludwig funnels the talented musician’s love of storytelling into five songs that blend old-school twang with modern muscle.
Inspired by the classic (Alan Jackson, George Strait) and contemporary (Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Eric Church) sounds he grew up with, Ludwig’s forthcoming EP follows his 2020 single, “Let Me Be Your Whiskey,” which he co-wrote with Michael Dulaney (Faith Hill’s “The Way You Love Me”).
In a genre rooted in honesty, Ludwig is the real deal. He’s a lifelong Country fan who knows how it feels to roll up his sleeves, get to work, and chase down his dreams. And while he’s already found success in Hollywood – with leading roles in Vikings, Lone Survivor, The Hunger Games, and Bad Boys For Life – he isn’t expecting anyone in Nashville to simply roll out the red carpet for him. He’s going to earn it, one song at a time.
