ShowDog Nashville's Mica Roberts plans on February single, video

Sunday, January 27, 2008 – ShowDog Nashville's newest artist, Mica Roberts, will release her debut single and video in February.

The Locust Grove, Okla. native Roberts started visiting radio stations last week to introduce "Things A Mama Don't Know," which will be released to radio nationwide Feb. 19.

Since 2003, Roberts has performed with Toby Keith's Easy Money band. She usually also sings a song during Keith's concerts. Keith produced and sang on the single. Keith also owns ShowDog Nashville.

"I want to make music that says something," Roberts said. "This is a very message driven song about real life. Sadly, there are a people in these kinds of relationships that never get out. One of the biggest things I've learned from Toby is to give people what they need, not what they want. That's what makes me unafraid of stepping out with this kind of song as my first single. It's a song people need to hear."

The track was written by Liz Rose, Brandy Clark and Mark Narmore, and its video was directed by the award-winning Michael Salomon. Rose penned "Teardrops on My Guitar" for Taylor Swift.

But five albums in, Cantrell continues as a warm, enjoyable and worthy purveyor of her brand of country. That would mean going towards a more traditional side, not rushing the songs... »»»
