Yelawolf has had a lot go down in the past year. From signing with Shady Records to releasing his debut album with Shady, Radioactive, and recently suffering a ruptured spleen, he certainly has a lot that he'll want to get off of his chest in his sophomore album.
He recently sat down Rhyme & Reason to reveal the title of his next album, and he also discussed the meaning behind the Johnny Cash and June Carter tattoo he has on his head.
Here's what Yelawolf had to say:
"The title to my next album is Love Story. We'll be recording in June, part of July in Nashville, Tennessee. Just going to lock it down and bring my family back down together. I just got a lot boiling up. A lot of experiences the last couple of years. I just want to make a classic. The classic is the standard. I'm trying to make music that will last a lifetime.
"I met a girl named Fefe a while back, and we kinda clicked on Johnny Cash and June's relationship. I always looked up to Johnny and June, and Johnny particularly because of his cowboy style. Love one woman type of thing. I always kind of wanted that. She just became a very important part of my life, and it's changed a lot. That tattoo is just a show of appreciation and dedication for me to her, and then also our understanding of Johnny and June's relationship and how I look up to Johnny Cash as an artist and a human, and how they carried themselves in the public. It winds and winds around in cycles. It's a long story, but in short, that's pretty much what the tattoo's about."
