New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Singer/songwriter Rick Monroe has been hard at work for the last several months promoting the May 12 release of his new EP, GYPSY SOUL. Now, with the clock ticking to Friday's official release, Monroe is doubling down. 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. Sean Giovanni (John Rich, Clint Black, Big & Rich) produced five tracks for the project, while renowned engineer/producer JD Shuff (Collin Raye, CeCe Wynans) helmed one. GYPSY SOUL can pre-ordered now at iTunes.
