Nashville, Tenn. – With Father’s Day right around the corner, rising Bluegrass group Merle Monroe is excited to release their new single, “Dad.” The track serves as the band’s second release from the highly-anticipated debut Merle Haggard / Bill Monroe inspired project, Back To The Country, which is available June 21 via Pinecastle Records. Fans can pre-order the upcoming collection HERE, where they’ll instantly be able to download the new heartfelt single just in time for the holiday weekend.
“Dad” was written by Skip Ewing, and features Tim Raybon singing lead on the engaging ballad, while Daniel Grindstaff adds background vocals. The official video made its premiere online earlier this week, exclusively on The Bluegrass Situation. It tells the story about a father and the wisdom he has bestowed. In one specific part, Raybon sings, “the pages of my life just keep on turning / the way you always told me they would do” which plays out in the video, while flipping through a photo album featuring old family pictures from both Merle Monroe members Raybon and Grindstaff.
Merle Monroe has continued to sweep the nation with their upcoming project, Back To The Country. Prior to its release, several of the album’s 12 songs have already started gaining traction at radio. The song “Blessed City” is quickly becoming a religious staple, storming its way to No. 6 on the ‘Gospel Weekly Airplay Chart’, while another song called “Movin’ On” recently debuted at No. 1 on Roots Music Report’s ‘Top 50 Traditional Bluegrass Song Chart’ which marks the band’s very first Number One hit.
