Rural Rhythm Records has announced the release of the second single, “I Think I’ll Let You Drive,” from the 12-track, self-titled album TAMMY JONES ROBINETTE & THE DRIVE, to radio today. The mid-tempo song penned by Steve Gulley features the superb and refreshing alto of Robinette, with Gulley and Grammy-nominee Dale Ann Bradley on backing vocals. It also features a heavy fiddle intro and outro by Aubrey Haynie, as well as the mandolin-stylings of Sam Bush and resonator work of Grammy-nominee Rob Ickes. The single is available for download on ITUNES, AMAZON and in stores where fine Bluegrass and Gospel music is sold. Radio programmers can download the song on Airplay Direct by clicking HERE. The lyric video for the song will be available next week. For more information of Tammy Jones Robinette & The Drive, please visit TammyJonesRobinetteandTheDrive.com.
“When Steve first played this song for me, I knew I had to record it!” says Robinette. “It captures the desperation I think we’ve all felt at some point—that we’ve lost our sense of direction, especially when we hit one dead end road after another,” she explains. “We can throw up our hands and give up, or we can hand our keys to someone else and let them guide us down the right path,” she explains. “The timing of this release couldn’t be better either,” she beams. “At the end of each year, we all sort of take a moment or two to reflect on our lives and resolve to do things different. What a great message headed into the new year!”
“I Think I’ll Let You Drive” is the follow-up single to “To Be a Kid Again,” which reached #6 on Bluegrass Today’s Weekly Airplay Chart/Top-20 on the monthly chart.
