Rick Monroe is a travelin’ man.
Born in Florida, he grew up in a variety of places — California, Connecticut, Kansas, North Carolina, even England. After settling in Nashville and launching his career, the young singer/songwriter performed in every state except Oregon (an omission he aims to rectify soon). He’s sung the National Anthem during Fourth of July celebrations in Vietnam, performed in more than a dozen countries and entertained former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, who expressed his thanks by kissing Monroe on the cheek and calling him “pop star.”
But as far as he’s wandered, Monroe has always stood firm on the bedrock of country music. And with the release of “Great Minds Drink Alike,” the third single from his EP, IT’S A LOVE THING, Monroe brings it all back home!
