Acuff dropped “Life of a Rolling Stone” in January of 2020 but everything got put on hold due to COVID-19. he had lost everything, but instead of giving up he doubled down on his dream and one year later he dropped his independent sophomore album “If I were the Devil” which put him on the map. In the first 6 months, the album has done over 6 million total streams and has been featured on over 50 media outlets including Whiskey Riff, and CMT.
Going forward into 2022 Acuff is working on his third album and second national tour. Acuff’s third project is one that he has wanted to release for a long time. The sound will consist of a more honkey-tonk sound that he had found playing across the country. Be on the lookout for his new album and his tour dates for 2022.
