Multi-hyphenate Alexander Ludwig is gearing up to release his full-length debut album, Highway 99 due out August 26 via BBR Music Group/BMG in Nashville. Filled with 16 tracks that tell universal stories about small towns, wild nights, broken hearts, and big dreams, the album is glued together by a mix of amplified guitars, climactic choruses, and heartland hooks. Ludwig’s debut single from the project, “Faded On Me” is out now. A follow up to his 2021 self-titled EP and career-launching 2020 single “Let Me Be Your Whiskey,” the album was produced by Grammy nominated songwriters Kurt Allison and Tully Kennedy, both longtime members of Jason Aldean’s band. Other album collaborators include Nashville heavy hitters David Lee Murphy (Sheryl Crow, Kenny Chesney) and Michael Delaney (Jason Aldean, Reba McEntire).
In addition to working on new music, Ludwig can be seen as the lead in the STARZ TV series Heels, which is currently in production on its second season. Most recently on the big screen, he starred alongside Uzo Aduba and J.K. Simmons in STX’s college sports drama National Champions. Upcoming, he will star in Guy Ritchie’s film The Interpreter for MGM and Amazon alongside Jake Gyllenhaal.
