The Monte Stephens Singers Historical Album 'CRYING' (digitally remastered) I was (7) years old when my dad, mom, and aunt Jerri recorded their first Nashville album. Now at the age of (39), when my friends hear this '2-track recording,' they think it's my dad's latest release. 'CRYING' has stood the test of time. My father has always been ahead of current trends when it comes to music. Through the years, the music business has made every attempt to mold my dad into one music genre. That's like trying to put tooth paste back in the tube. It's not going to happen. My father has said hundreds of times through the years, 'I'm the black duck headed for the woods musically while the white ones are headed for the pond.' After hearing 'CRYING' find some more of Monte Stephens' albums and you will discover each album has a musical (fingerprint) of my father.
