ADROIT RECORDS CONTINUES IT'S DEDICATION TO THE EXTRAORDINARY TALENT OF MUSIC CITY'S SINGER-SONGWRITERS WITH THE RELEASE OF "THE NASHVILLE AMERICANA STORYTELLERS COLLECTION' The CD contains ten original songs including Harry Stinson's personal version of "Wild Angels", which was a number one hit for Martina McBride. Harry is a multi talented musical force, and has achieved number one success as a drummer, vocalist, writer and producer. He also co-produced the 2007 Grammy nominated album 'Live at the Ryman' by Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives for whom he is the drummer. The disc also features the exclusive recording of Craig Bickhardt's rendition of "In Between Dances" which was a number one hit for Pam Tillis. Bickhardt's songs have found their way onto platinum and Grammy winning CDs by legends such as Ray Charles, B.B. King, Martina McBride, The Judds, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, The Highwaymen, Trisha Yearwood and others. The quality of the CD is further enhanced by the presence of world-renowned musician and award-winning songwriter Vince Melamed. Vince has written classics such as 'Walkaway Joe' and 'What Mattered Most,' and contributes a brand new song to this collection 'Feels Like Coming Home.' Craig Monday, one of Nashville's current rising stars, is represented with his haunting story song 'Heaven Is A Small Town.' Craig has recently gained success with songs recorded by Kenny Chesney, Jamey Johnson, Vince Gill, Randy Houser and others. Legendary Nashville songwriter Lisa Carver's masterpiece 'Bullets' which won the Independent Music Award Song Of The Year adds even more to the power of this amazing collection. Carver has written hits for such artists as Sugarland, Jewel, Julie Roberts and others. But there is nothing like the way she performs the deeply personal songs she writes for herself. As usual, Adroit Records dedicates precious space on their compilation discs to singer-songwriters who they feel deserve the attention of discerning listeners worldwide.
