Howdy! Richard Speight, Jr. fans everywhere are rejoicing at the latest news. Rich has released both the album art and track list for his highly anticipated country album currently in the works.

The list features five amazing (and bold) cover songs and four (five if you count the hidden track) original tracks straight from the mind of Rich.

“Man I Feel Like a Woman” by Shania Twain is certainly a strong choice for Rich, but we are excited to see him put a unique twist on the female empowerment tune.

What could be more country than a song about a woman dancing to her favorite song? Rich’s cover of “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” by Trace Adkins is sure to be an upbeat catchy tune that will makes us want to get up and dance.

Rich really amps up the country western album with the very relatable song “Ticks” by Brad Paisley. After a romantic walk in the moonlight through the sticks, who wouldn’t want to be checked for ticks?

“Fancy” by Reba McEntire is a classic country song and there is no way that Rich could miss out on the chance to cover this one. Though it takes on a more serious tone than the previous two songs, we cannot wait to hear Rich sing about Fancy.

The last of his covers will pay homage to two massive country music stars. “Tim McGraw” by Taylor Swift may be an unconventional choice, but we are excited to hear Rich’s take on the ballad.

Rich will also grace us with four original tracks. For these songs Rich drew his inspiration from several of his passions and those around him.

In the ballad “My Best Friend Bob-o,” Rich sings (literally) the praises of his best friend Rob Benedict. We are sure this one will be a fast favorite among fans!

“Where’s Misha?” speaks to the eternal question asked by both Misha Collins’ friends and family on a daily basis, where in the world is Misha Collins?!

“Dick Chat” is perhaps the tune for which we are most excited. Fans know the brilliance of Rich’s snapchat videos that show us the behind the scenes, nitty gritty side of Supernatural conventions. Will it be a fast song or a ballad? We have to wait and see.

Lastly we have the hidden but equally brilliant tune, “King of Con-vincing y’all we are serious” and we love it.

Happy April Fools Day!
