Rick Monroe Gears Up For Friday Release Of Gypsy Soul EP

One Country premiered the disc's title track yesterday, and fans can listen live today, May 9, when Rick visits with Devon O'Day at 5:15 p.m. CT on WSM-AM's "Nashville Today" show. On Wednesday, The Boot will premiere "Rage On," the Outlaw/Southern Gospel sensation from the six-track EP; The Alternate Root will feature the gritty number in their Top 10 Songs of the Week on Saturday.
