Kevin Costner - Kevin Costner Planning Hatfields & Mccoys Album

Kevin Costner and his band Modern West are working on a new album of Americana music inspired by the movie star's record-breaking TV mini-series Hatfields & Mccoys.
The TV drama shattered cable TV viewing records in America when it aired at the end of last month (May12) and Costner admits he's still engrossed in the story of the post-Civil War feuding families.
He wrote new material inspired by the period drama while he was filming in Romania - and those tracks are to be used for a behind-the-scenes, making-of documentary.
Costner and his band didn't stop there, however, and the Field of Dreams star is now planning to release an album of Hatfields & MCCoys music.
He explains, "We're doing a concept record about the Hatfields and MCCoys. I got so deep into this that we started writing music while we were still filming... We're creating a record called Famous for Killing Each Other."
And Costner tells Cowboys & Indians magazine, "It's just our version of Appalachia and a lot of the lyrics express the feelings I had while we were filming."
The album, which will be released later this year (12), will evoke the spirit of the mid-to-late 1800s in West Virginia and Kentucky.
