Nashville, TN (April 10, 2013) — Rick Monroe will support headliner Aaron Lewis on the 2013 Jägermeister Country Tour. Monroe's new single and video release for his new track, "Just the Same" will coincide with the Tour which kicks-off May 1.

Monroe said, "It's true that Jagermeister is a brand as deeply rooted in music as it is in mythology and lore. I'm proud to take part in this my fifth Jagermeister Tour, this time with Aaron Lewis."

The soon to be released track, Just the Same (http://www.mrgrecordings.com/MRG/Rick_Monroe.html) is the follow-up to Monroe's "Crazy Not To" single which was released in the summer of 2012 and reached top-40 radio and chart status across the country. Now, in the spring of 2013, Monroe looks to continue that momentum, releasing the emotionally charged and heartfelt single, Just the Same, with a uniquely romantic and stylized video music clip/postcard to accompany the music, lensed by director Mike Stryker.

Monroe's music and music videos have been heard and seen on CMT, GAC and TNN here in the US and on international outlets, as well. He's been profiled on network shows including Access Hollywood, ET, ABC's "On the Red Carpet and Extra, in addition to his numerous performances on national and local talk and morning shows. Rick's headlined his own tours and has opened for the likes of Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Josh Thompson Pat Green, Charlie Daniels, Dwight Yoakam and Montgomery Gentry. He's toured Europe consistently and performed an average of 70 dates a year for the last two years.

As has been the case for the past several years, Monroe will be on the road touring once again. Commenting on last year's 2012 Jagermeister Country tour with Randy Houser, Rick Monroe said, "I was absolutely thrilled to be on the road doing what I love to do best. We were out there in support of my new single "Crazy Not To" so it was great fun performing that tune in front of packed houses and shaking hands with as many country music fans as possible." In 2011, Rick's single, "Get UR Country On" spawned the "Jagermeister Presents" Club tour of the same name.

Produced by David Norris (www.norrisong.com), of the new Just the Same track, Monroe noted, "When we wrote Just The Same I thought it was more for pitching to another artist. But it was no surprise to me when we selected it to be a single and how naturally it came to together." Regarding the music video clip, Rick added, "We couldn't have gotten any luckier with getting Mike Stryker to direct the video he "got it" right away and like the recording everything fell into place with ease. From getting the couples, locations, props and support we were definitely blessed and under favor."

No stranger to success, Rick's previous album "Get Loud Get Lit" launched the hit single Honky Tonk Road Trip which spawned a television reality series pilot of the same name which is currently in development. His 'Against the Grain' album featured the hit single and video 'Midnight Rider'. Having received rave reviews in print and numerous accolades on television shows such as EXTRA and ET, Rick's gritty Midnight Rider music video is still a fan favorite.

Aaron Lewis made his journey to the country scene in 2011 with the release of his debut EP, Town Line, and the success of the gold-selling single "Country Boy," featuring the legendary George Jones and Charlie Daniels. The seven-song EP reached No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200.

Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com) or directly through the venue website. The 2013 Jägermeister Country Tour will feature Jägermeister custom tour prizes from Schecter Guitars and Vypyr Amps by Peavey. For more information on Jägermeister, visit www.facebook.com/jagerusa.
