Every Country Music Fan Can Now Go 'Get Your Merle On' With New Song From Danielle Egnew

Merle Haggard is rightly considered one of the world's most important songwriters and Danielle Egnew is honoring him in "Play Some Merle," a fast-paced country-rock song. The playful lyrics of the tune show how a little music by The Hag can make almost any situation better. "I have always been in awe of the songs of Merle Haggard," Egnew states, "so when the opportunity came to be part of this song, I jumped at it."

All instruments and vocals on the recording are by Egnew. Once finished, she presented the track to producer Matt Forger for review. Forger has a long list of indie and major label credits, including working on the current "Bad25" Michael Jackson box-set. "The lyrics and the drive of the song were undeniable," Forger states, who has expressed interest in producing his own version of the tune.

Shooting the video in the towns of Sheridan and Story, Wyoming, co-directors Egnew and Roy Pack approached townspeople right on the street to solicit their participation. "There's such an Old West way of doing business there. It's great," says Egnew, originally a native of Montana. "We'd ask people if they wanted to be in a video and as soon as we said the title of the song, everybody was like: 'I'm in!' It was just so cool!"

"Play Some Merle," the single, is the first official release on the new label, Tin Star Records, which was formed at the end of 2011 by Egnew and Pack. Working with Americana artists primarily in the Rocky Mountain West, the company has offices in Sheridan and Los Angeles. Shure, Inc. partnered with Tin Star to create the first all-Shure commercial recording studio, featuring Shure's studio KSM series mics. In addition, Egnew has endorsements from Minarik Guitars, In Tune Guitar Picks, Studio Devil Software, and Scoop Straps.

Writers of "Play Some Merle" are Egnew, John Scott G, and Philip Hatten. The video for "Play Some Merle" is on YouTube at http://youtu.be/OeKM9M4Ci0Q and the song is published by Golosio (BMI) and Ave Vox (ASCAP).
