Texas Country Artist Rebecca Henricks Releases Dance With Me, July 14, 2007
"A modern day June Carter Cash..." "... a little bit of heaven on earth"
Co-produced by Henricks, Milo Deering, Mike McClain, and Jeff Teague, "Dance With Me" is a traditional country album with touches of bluegrass and gospel. Those who know Rebecca will recognize the album's title track, the remixed "Dance With Me" that was written about the first blind date with her husband, Astronaut Tom Henricks, commander and pilot of four space shuttle missions.
The album offers other songs from great writers like Claude Ely's "Ain't No Grave (Gonna Hold My Body Down)" along with covers like "Crazy" by Willie Nelson. Album highlights include the upbeat single by Nashville songwriter Chad Smith "Rubbin' It In." "Moon Shadows" penned by Henricks, is an ode to a beautiful moonlit night in Keller, Texas. "The Day I Met You" written after Henricks recalled her love of the Red River while strolling through Central Park in NYC. "Too Late," a tribute to her late grandmother who said that those were the two saddest words in the dictionary, and "Ridin' The Plains" which tells tales of what her Daddy's life must have been like picking cotton in Southland, Texas. Henricks is very patriotic and has written songs to commemorate many of our fallen heroes who served in the military and with NASA, so it is fitting that the CD closes with Dolly Parton's "Red, White and Bluegrass."
Playing on the album with Rebecca are some of Dallas and Nashville's most accomplished musicians including Milo Deering (LeAnn Rimes, Steve Holy, Trout Fishing in America, Beatlegras), Rocky Gribble, Mike McClain, guitarist J.T. Corenflos (Tim McGraw, Trace Adkins, Sara Evans, Dierks Bentley), steel guitarist Dan Dugmore (Linda Ronstadt, James Taylor, Pam Tillis), drummer Greg Morrow (Sugarland), and Grammy Award-Winning fiddle player Larry Franklin (Asleep at the Wheel). Dallas' Annagrey Labasse, Kevin Bailey and Patty Wilson sing backing vocals.
"Creating the album was a great experience. We recorded in Dallas, Garland, and Nashville... and every musician was beyond superb. Singing was the easy part! This is a collection of songs about this crazy life of lost love, mistakes, new love and just plain fun... with a few added traditional country classics. I hope that everyone enjoys it as much as Stagecoach Road," said Henricks.
