Daryle Singletary signs new deal

Wednesday, February 25, 2009 – Traditional country singer Daryle Singletary returns to action with his new single, Love You With The Lights On. The singer signed with a sort of new label and has an album coming soon.

Singletary signed with E1 Music, which used to be Koch Records. Written by the hit songwriters Chris DuBois (We Danced, Mud Tires, Your Man, 19 Somethin') and David Lee (I Need You, A Better Rain, It Just Comes Natural), the new song is from his debut, "Rockin' In The Country," streeting April 21. The project was produced by Greg Cole and Chuck Rhodes, Director, E1 Music, Country Division.

"E1 Music is proud to release the first single from Daryle in two years and his first full project in several years," said Rhodes. "I've been associated with Daryle for 15 years and I can honestly say that Daryle is one of the greatest singers in the country music business today."

Love You With The Lights On has R&B flavors. Free downloads of the single are going to be made available at select radio station websites along with a free autographed photo of Singletary.

Singletary was on the late Giant label in the mid-1990s. By 2008, he had released six albums and had several hit singles; I'm Living Up To Low Expectations, Too Much Fun, The Note and his number 1 hit. I Let Her Lie.

Besides performing frequently on the Grand Ole Opry stage, Singletary will embark on the 2009 Rockin' In The Country tour on March 14 in support of the new CD. Singletary will also participate in a CRS Showcase sponsored by E1 Music and PLC Records on Thursday night March 5 in Nashville.

CD reviews for Daryle Singletary

There's Still a Little Country Left
The latest from Daryle Singletary sounds like it could have been recorded in his mid-'90s heyday. He remains in fine voice, but some tracks suffer from overproduction. A recurring theme is Singletary's disdain for the current country music scene. The opening "Get Out of My Country" is not the anti-immigration anthem the title suggests, but a denunciation of those he perceives as musical interlopers ("If you came to Twang Town just for the money/Then pack it up son/Get out »»»
Rockin' In The Country CD review - Rockin' In The Country
manages to put a modern day spin on a pair of classic-style songs. The album's name is ironic given that Daryle Singletary's music is far from rockin country, but the title track - which includes Charlie Daniels Band - is really about Farm Aid and how CDB and Willie Nelson raise money so farmers can keep their land. Everyone in America knows about the foreclosure crisis, and Singletary puts it into heart-wrenching ballad form like only a traditional country song could with Real Estate »»»

That country music ain't what it used to be is not exactly a new Idea - it seems like every country singer has at least one name-checking tribute to Jones, Haggard, et al. in their catalog. But Daryle Singletary delivers his take on the theme, "I Still Sing This Way," with such obvious good humor that it feels fresh. He then backs up that sentiment with an album leaving no doubt about his sincerity. He covers tunes from the aforementioned Jones ("These Days I Barely Get »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Rising Appalachia buck the mainsteam, and that's fine with them – Rising Appalachia would not be accused of being in the musical mainstream. Not too many bands who combine folk and Appalachian sounds with new world music could possibly be. And that suits the sister-led duo of Chloe Smith and Leah Song just fine. In fact, at one point, Chloe made it clear she did not embrace radio play as a sign of success... »»»
Concert Review: Bingham plays with something to prove – Ryan Bingham mainly focused on songs from his sixth album "American Love Song," for this lively show. Backed by a supportive band that also included two female backup singers and a fiddler, Bingham's eclectic setlist touched upon country, singer/songwriter folk, rock and blues. Bingham reached for lively country sounds early on, with... »»»
