He is still writing as long as he still has the beard. I believe the last quote I read said that the album wouldn't be ready until sometime in 2014.
Yeah dude, I'm thinking you are correct. Later this year or next year. Chief still has plenty of gas left in the tank. "Over When It's Over" is a great single. After that, they could still release "Hungover and Hard Up". "Keep On" might not get play on country radio, but this is the same guy who released "Smoke" as a single and forced them to play it. I guess on that note, "I'm Gettin' Stoned" could be a single too. Ha.
That's the mark of a great album. Full of hits.
