Last June, Monica was featured on Jimmie Allen and Little Big Town track called ‘Pray’. This feature inspired her to do a whole country music album. Monica said in a recent interview, “I grew up loving country music, and my stepfather, who raised me, is a Methodist minister, but he also drove buses and he would take us to Nashville, Gatlinburg, and Dollywood in Tennessee. I became a really big fan of Dolly Parton, at about 8 or 9 years old. That was my real introduction to country music. Shortly after, it was Kenny Rogers. I started listening to the depth of the songs and the fact that they were unafraid to say whatever it was they felt. I felt like this was a great time for me to really step into an area that I’ve always admired and loved. We’re just getting started, but I have so enjoyed it and been welcomed with open arms.” Are you ready for a country music album from Monica?
