Consider us not surprised. We knew this is what he left Glee for. Let's just hope it was worth it.
While he maintains that being on the show was one of the "best experiences" of his life, Chord Overstreet bid farewell to the hit FOX show after only one season. The creators of Glee insisted that Chord wanted to pursue "other projects" and Chord confirmed that at least one of those projects is his first album.
As the son of country music legend Paul Overstreet, Chord knows a thing or two about music and is ready to share that with the fans he's accumulated over the last year. When asked about the album, Chord explained:
"I had the best time working on the show and I had one of the best life experiences. It was a blast. But I decided to look at it as an opportunity to dive into my music. I've been writing music my entire life and I had an opportunity to work on a record. It's something I have a huge passion for. I did a lot of thinking and I felt like it was a good time to work on my album and focus on that avenue of my career."
Hmm. Funny how Matthew Morrison and Mark Salling were able to record albums and still keep their jobs on Glee, huh?
For those of you who simply don't care that he threw away a good thing, Chord hopes to "get something out there for the fans to hear pretty soon." So, keep an eye out for that.
Hey Chord, has Emma Roberts heard your stuff yet?
