Pre-orders begin today for out country star Ty Herndon's new album 'House On Fire'

Grammy Award nominated and out country star Ty Herndon is back with a brand new album - his first since coming out publicly as gay - and it's available for pre-sale beginning today. 'House On Fire,' is available on iTunes and Amazon and includes immediate download of the lead single, "That Kind of Night." The full album will be released on November 11. 

Herndon burst onto the country music scene in 1995, when his first single "What Mattered Most" reached number one on the charts. Since then, he boasts two gold albums and 15 Top 40 singles.

Last summer, Herndon and GLAAD co-presented the Concert for Love and Acceptance, the first LGBT-affirming concert to be held during CMA Fest, which draws more than 250,000 music fans to Nashville each year. The concert featured performances by Herndon, country music legend Crystal Gayle, newcomer Levi Hummon, and a host of others and served as a kick-off to GLAAD's Southern Stories Summer Tour. Herndon will be joining forces with GLAAD again later this month at GLAAD Atlanta, a celebration of national and local leaders accelerating acceptance, where he will be performing selections from the new album.

As for Herndon's new album, a BFD and Sony/RED press release discussed "House On Fire," saying:

"House On Fire is a collection of 12 new contemporary songs, co-produced by Herndon and Erik Halbig, with Drew Davis joining as co-producer on six of the songs. Track by track, Herndon has made some of the most engaging, meaningful and fulfilling music of his career. Featuring Herndon’s powerful trademark vocals, the new album is already receiving critical accolades from the Nashville music community and showcases a deeper, greater strength from a man who has been there and back and has lived to tell about it. House on Fire is the next evolution of Ty Herndon."

Herndon has taken to his Facebook page to share a preview from the album ahead of its release:
