CountryHome - Germany's Premier Country Music Magazine - proudly presents RICK MONROE

   Country singer-songwriter Rick Monroe possesses the ability to take life experiences that we all share and create songs that speak to his listeners. Monroe connects with his audiences and leaves them wanting more whether it is in an intimate setting with his acoustic guitar or a festival with his band halfway around the world. Monroe truly embodies the Indie Artist tradition. Having recorded and released two previous albums on his own independent label, Divorce Records, as well as extensive worldwide touring. Monroe's first album, "Legend's Diner" featured many notable players on it such as Keith Howland (Chicago), Lance Morrison (Don Henley, Rod Stewart) and Matt Laug (Alanis Morisette) and ended up charting two singles from that album on the Gavin AC chart.
   Rick's second album, "Shame", also featured prominent musicians including members of the legendary Texas Tornadoes blending roots rock, country and Texas soul. That album also produced another single ("Can I Call You Home") that reached #19 on the Gavin AC chart.
   To date, the two independent records released by Rick have sold over 30,000 units. Monroe has an extensive touring history both domestically and internationally with an impressive list of countries performed in. He has played: Russia, Bosnia, Kosovo Macedonia, Hungry, Honduras, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Bahamas, Germany and England in addition to the United States. With an invitation from Pete Peterson, US Ambassador to Vietnam at the US / Vietnam Embassy, Monroe performed at the weeklong 4th of July celebrations in Hanoi and Ho Chi Mihn City. Monroe was honored to sing the US National anthem for the 5-year anniversary for the re-opening of diplomatic relations between the countries. It was the first time the anthem had been sung in Vietnam at a public event in 25 years. Monroe followed that up with a Command Performance for the former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev on the USS Sequoia Presidential Yacht, Washington, DC. This performance lead to a trip to Russia where Monroe performed for the children at several orphanages and was a featured performer on REN TV's Bulat Okudzhava Festival in Moscow, Russia.
   For his new album “Against The Grain” Monroe has been working with producer Clyde Brooks. Under Clyde's direction and a host of "Nashville's Finest", the sound picks up where "Shame" left off with even more of the Country, American Roots sound that Monroe has always pursued. His new songs reflect years of experience and growth that is usually found in only the most seasoned of artists. With their special blend of Showmanship, Contemporary & Classic Country a dash of Southern Roots Rock and twist of Texas Swing, Monroe and his band have been kicking up a storm on the Country Dance Hall Scene and is finally attending Europe as well.
