William Shatner may be hoping to return to Star Trek, but he isn’t waiting by the phone. The multi-talented icon is keeping very busy, and his to-do list includes a return to music. Heartland Records Nashville just announced that Mr. Shatner has joined their roster of country music artists and he is currently working on a “very special project” that will be released later this year. No more details were provided, but Heartland promised more information was coming soon.
This would be Shatner’s first foray into country music for a music career that spans the decades starting with his first studio album The Transformed Man in 1968. Shatner’ fifth and latest release was the 2013 concept album of duets, Ponder the Mystery.
