Today, Nov. 11, 2016, marks eight years of Kevin Costner & Modern West’s debut album, Untold Truths. The album reached #61 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Albums chart and #35 on the U.S. Billboard Top Heatseekers chart.
The band released four singles off Untold Truths, including Superman 14, Long Hot Night, Backyard and Hey Man What About You.
Hidden Figures is the incredible untold story of Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughn (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)—brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.
Kevin paid tribute to legendary sports broadcaster Vin Scully at Dodger Stadium Friday, Sept. 23.
“We will miss you, my friend. We will miss you in our radio, in our cars, in our backyard. You’ve been a gift to Los Angeles and to baseball itself. It seems forever that you’ve been guiding us through your personal window into the game,” Kevin told Scully. “How lucky we were that day in Brooklyn when the microphone passed into your hands. You were the chosen one, the skinny redhead who stood on the shoulders of the biggest kid, ready to look through the knothole in the fence to describe to us what was going on. You were better than a golden ticket. You invited us all to pull up a chair, spend the afternoon, then proceeded to walk us into the next century.”
