Rick takes us inside the music… Monroe says, “In the case of Small Town (5/20 release date on iTunes) Kenneth Duncan and I were stuck on the song we were writing and he just happen to play the first part of “Small Town” for an ear break… and that was it! We shifted gears immediately and boom. The one thing I’ve seen in all my travels is people are people, with the same basic wants and needs. We all love and we all struggle. I really feel we struck the perfect balance. With a basic chord progression & direct lyric I believe we’ve captured the large & small view of the world in simple song.” Rick continues, “Fires Out was inspired by trying to mix a different flavor into country. Recently there’s a lot of country rap going on and I wanted to see if we could take from the groove/pop side of things ala Maroon 5/Bruno Mars. I know it’s pretty different, but I think it’s like a good gumbo you need to add a little kick of spice sometimes and not be afraid to try something new. “Producer of the first three tracks, Giovanni added, “We had a blast working on Rick’s record. He does a an incredible job of straddling the line between traditional country, pop country, and southern rock, in way that is sure to please fans young and old.”
