If you are a tired of Pop Country, a fan of Traditional country sound and like to hear lyrics with meaning, then do yourself a favor and check out Tony Ramey at The Southgate House next month! The Kenova, WV born artist is a multi-genre singer/songwriter with a bluesy folk/country sound that you do not get to hear on Country Radio these days. Tony has penned songs for the likes of Trisha Yearwood, John Michael Montgomery, George Strait, Alabama and Craig Morgan. “That’s How I Was Raised” is a song that Tony wrote about growing up country and learning about traditional values and morals in life. This song was recorded by Alabama and included on their ‘Alabama and Friends’ release.
Other songs written by Ramey include ‘Make Up in Love” recorded by Doug Stone, ‘Second Chance’ recorded by Trisha Yearwood, ‘Something To Write Home About’ recorded by Craig Morgan, ‘Hot Grease and Zydeco’ Recorded by George Strait and many many others! These songs only cover a small portion of Tony’s repertoire and even if you have never heard of Tony, you will find yourself singing along with him as if you have heard his music for years. Some of Tony’s original recordings include ‘Watertower Skyline’, ‘Give it To Me Straight’, ‘Pray Hard’, ‘Daddy Had a Cane Pole’, ‘Let Me Be Lonely’ and ‘Heroes In The Field’. ‘Heroes In The Field’ is a touching tribute to our armed service men and women who lay it on the line everyday in true hero fashion.
