Nelly's 'Heartland': Every Country Music Artist Collab on the New Album

Nelly is drawing inspiration from his southern roots for his upcoming album Heartland, which will feature a whole host of the best country music artists around.

Heartland is Nelly's first studio album in eight years and could be his most unique to date. He's previously collaborated with country music singers in the past but not to the scale expected on his next record.

Sharing details of Heartland on Instagram, the rapper tagged all of the artists expected to appear on the LP, which is due out on Friday August 27, 2021.

Which country music stars are appearing on Heartland?

Earlier this week, Nelly excitedly wrote "YEESSSSSEERRR ..!!
#HEARTLAND the ALBUM OUT AUGUST 27th ..!!!", tagging a list of all of the people who are guests on the album.

Tagged first is Florida Georgia Line whose single with Nelly has already gone platinum. Their song "Lil Bit" was released in 2020 and will feature on the upcoming album.

He also tagged Blanco Brown and Breland, two artists who feature on Nelly's latest single "High Horse." The trio performed the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and it will also feature on Heartland.

Musicians Tyler Hubbard, Jimmie Allen, George Birge, Chris Bandi and Kane Brown are all tagged and due to guest feature on Heartland. Nelly's half brother City Spud, who was part of the hip hop group St. Lunatics will also feature on the album.

Heartland is already being hyped with T.I. and Busta Rhymes commenting on his post with a number of positive emojis.

Who else has Nelly collaborated with?

Nelly has a rich history of collaborating with artists from many different genres of music.

In the country music world he's worked with Florida Georgia Line before on the song "Cruise," Tim McGraw on their hit "Over and Over," and recently with Jimmie Allen on the track "Good Time Roll."

He's collaborated with some of the biggest names in pop, rap and hip hop like Nicki Minaj, Pharrell Williams, Fergie, Rick Ross, T-Pain, Usher, Janet Jackson, N Sync, Kelly Rowland and Diddy.

The upcoming release of Heartland is Nelly's first album in eight years and his first under his own label and Columbia Records. He signed with Columbia in 2018 after releasing music on his his own label RECORDS for a couple of years.

In late 2020, Nelly took part in Season 29 of Dancing With the Stars and impressed audiences enough to make it to the final, finishing in third place.
