Tenn. (December 22, 2014) – January is always a time for cold and brisk
temperatures, but Country singer Rick Monroe has the perfect way to
battle those chills – with his current single and video “Fire’s Out.”
The steamy video clip for the song has been posted to Monroe’s CMT
Artist Page, and can be viewed by going to www.cmt.com/artists/rick-monroe/music-videos/

The sensual track is the latest release from Monroe’s EP It’s A Love Thing, and
will be featured on participating Music Row reporting stations “Test
Drive” feature starting Jan 1st. Monroe has had quite the varied career
so far along, headlining his own shows – in addition to opening shows
for CMA winners such as Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Dwight Yoakam, and
Charlie Daniels. He has tasted success with previous singles such as
“Just The Same,” and “Crazy Not To,” which in addition to it’s peak at
the top of the New Music Weekly chart, also hit the Top-40 on Music Row, and earned Monroe a ranking of No. 4 on the European Country Charts.

The latest EP from Monroe has been hailed by fans and critics alike
for its’ step in musical direction. “I 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 à la 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.”

Monroe has taken his music all over the United States – and part of
the globe, as well. He has performed in such locales as Bosnia, China,
Macedonia, Vietnam, the Bahamas, and Switzerland. He was also invited at
the request of Pete Peterson, US Ambassador to Vietnam , to perform at
the week-long 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 of the re-opening of diplomatic relations between the
countries. This marked the first time the anthem had been sung at a
public event in Vietnam in over 25 years. He has also given a Command
Performance for former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev
on the USS Sequoia Presidential Yacht, Washington, DC. This lead to a
trip to Russia where Monroe performed at several orphanages and was a
featured performer on REN TV’s Bulat Okudzhava Festival in Moscow.

Monroe most recently spent quite a bit of 2014 opening for ACM-award
winning The Eli Young Band as part of the successful Jagermeister’s
Ultimate Summer of Music Tour. He has been associated with the tour
since 2009.
