I was lucky enough to catch Rick and the boys at Whiskey River this past Friday night. I bought 'Shame' and 'Against the Grain' the next day. I've never been a really big country fan, but Rick's got the right amount of southern rock, soul, and country. The guys put on a great show, I can't wait for them to hit Macon, GA again.
Rick Monroe is AWESOME. He has a Great sound, voice, songs and an Awesome Band. Not one of the songs on his “Against The Grain” CD shouldn’t be on the radio right now. “Remember The Music”, “Dancehall King”, “Wrapped In You”, “Runaway” and “Grace” are songs that Stay with you. You can’t get them out of your head. They are not to be missed when playing in your area. The only thing better than playing this CD at home is seeing Rick singing and Jeff Marshall on lead Guitar live on stage. Rick has a bright future ahead of him and more great music for all of us. Keep up the great work Rick.
I just found out what all the big deal was about Rick Monroe. The guy can sing.
His new CD is incredible. I like I Remember the Music, but the one song that really talks to me is Type of Guy. My boyfriend's old girlfriend messed up when she didn't know what she had. Well, the boy's mine now. Type of Guy sounds like Rick's sending a message to my boyfriend's old girlfriend and Rick sounds so SEXY doing it. Hot song from a hot guy. Give us more!
Impressive geographic coverage. Can't wait to see him in a stadium concert here in L.A. His music is awesome.
Rick is an amazing entertainer!! Very Impressive!! I have all of his music and love every song!! You can't go wrong when you are listening to or watching Rick and his guys perform!!
Thank you for it all!
Great new CD!! Of course all of his CD's have been great
to listen to. He is a born song writer / entertainer who is always aware of his audience and what they want to hear. Knock'em dead in
WOW! A piece on Rick! I've been following him as a fan for the past 2 years or so after a pleasant surprise one night out here in LA at Molly Malone's...He really is one of those artists that makes country music so personal - fun, and often heartfelt lyrics, from his older recordings like "Barbie's Got a Jones" and "Shame" to his new dance-hall craze stuff like "Dance Hall King" (which should be his next single!), "Heartbreak Tattoo," and "Dodged a Bullet," Rick's the next thing in country music.
This is my favorite artist of all time. I have been following him for many years. He has evolved from rock and ballad to country and I think that is his best work. I love all his songs! He has great stage presence in case you haven't seen him perform. We love you Rick.
Yeah Okay, so you're my husband... so, I still can think you're awesome!!! Great band, great songs, great front man and cute to boot! Keep up the hard work. Europe is going to LOVE you boys

Last fall, visiting in the N. LA area, we happened
upon this great entertainer and to the last one, all of us said: This guy's going to be famous! There's
something really special about him...maybe because his voice sounds like crushed velvet (my daughter said
that, she's now one of his biggest fans) We just got his new CD and it's one of the few times in my life
that I've bought a CD and liked EVERY ONE of the songs. It went into the car radio ( I have to drive
around a lot) and it has stayed. Other singers/artists might have one or two, but this young
man has 14 hits. We're originally from the South and
thanks for featuring Rick Monroe. I was here checking out the site and was surprised to see the
piece on Rick.
