Move Over Tim

Kevin Costner will fulfill a longtime dream in November when he releases his first album with his country-rock band, Modern West.

The actor, who said that his unlikely turn as a lead singer elicited double-takes when the band played a NASCAR event in July, has been playing music with some of his band mates for nearly 20 years.

An early incarnation of the band (once called Roving Boy) stalled when Costner's movie career took off, but in the past few years he's devoted more time to music. "I remember looking out into the crowd, thinking, 'This just feels right,' " Costner, 53, said in a statement about an early performance with Modern West. The album features 12 original songs, including six tunes co-written by Costner. Several tracks will be available to country radio this week and the album will be out Nov. 11.

The band plans to tour later this year and into 2009.

1 Mills, I logged on this morning thinking it was a given that you'd lead off with the Britney sex tape story! All over the news here, of course. I have 2 thoughts: (1) DUH -- this is like Clay Aiken coming out ... everyone in America knew that paparazzo sleaze was up to no good; and (2) it's too disturbing ... she was mentally unstable at the time.
