RHONDA VINCENT & DARRYL SINGLETARY – AMERICAN GRANDSTAND

Lead single, ‘One,’ is a slow love song that may sound familiar, as it was previously made famous by country legends George Jones and Tammy Wynette. Other standout songs include the title track, written by Vincent. When Vincent and Singletary were first trying to think of a title, American Grandstand stood out, which by definition is “to behave or speak in a way that is intended to impress people and to gain public approval.” This isn’t Vincent’s first venture into country music, as her previous Grammy-nominated studio album Only Me featured a combination of six traditional country songs and six bluegrass tracks, inc ‘We Must Have Been Out of Our Minds,’ which earns a rerun here. Add ‘After The Fire Is Gone,’ ‘Slowly But Surely’ and if you love traditional country music, and remember songs originally sung by well-known duet partners like George Jones and Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, and Merle Haggard and Bonnie Owens, this is a must-have CD.
