It's a rare treat for Nashville natives to get to experience a truly great singer from the newer generation, seeing how most of the famed voices in country music play everywhere but in Music City. However, Tuesday night (May 21) at the world-famous Station Inn, Daryle Singletary gave fans an extra special treat when he joined 45 RPM on stage for two sets of country classics.
Singletary wowed the room of traditional country music fans with his take on several classics including Don Williams' "Some Broken Hearts Never Mend" and Buck Owens' "I've Got a Tiger By the Tail." Singletary also worked in Johnny Paycheck's "Old Violin," which he recorded with the legend for his fifth studio album, That's Why I Sing This Way, as well as his own music, such as "The Note." The tune was Singletary's lead single from his Ain't It the Truth album release to country radio back in 1998, and it received just as strong of a response as the other songs in its company.
Singletary couldn't let the night slip away without playing some George Jones music, including "Bartender's Blues," "The One I Loved Back Then (The Corvette Song)" and "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes," which all songs reminded the room, as well as anyone in doubt that country music is fading away, that the future of the format is still in great hands when we have a talent such as Daryle Singletary around for years to come.
This year, Singletary will head out on the road with Andy Griggs and Mark Wills for select dates, as well as continue to do his own headlining shows. Visit www.darylesingletary.net for a full list of dates where you can catch Singletary live in concert.
