The website Taste of Country recently debuted "Mama & Daddy," the rowdy first single from Cincinnati-based Country singer/songwriter Dallas Moore's forthcoming album, Tryin' to Be a Blessing. The site called it an "exuberant track would be right at home in any barroom in the world."
“I originally wrote the song 'Mama & Daddy' several years ago," Moore says in a press release. "When they both passed away just weeks apart in 2018 (after being married nearly 63 years) I knew I would be dedicating this album to them and re-envisioned the song as a raucous and rollicking tribute to their lives, legacy, music and memories.”
The album will be released on Oct. 4. Just like Moore’s last album, last year’s Mr. Honky Tonk, the new album was produced by Dean Miller, son of the legendary Roger Miller and a fellow Country singer/songwriter. The album features a guest appearance by Nashville Honky Tonk singer Tommy Ash on the song “Lovin’ on Backstreets.”
The album is currently up for pre-order.
