Alecia Nugent's Debut Country Single, "They Don't Make 'em Like My Daddy Anymore"
Known for making compelling Bluegrass throughout her early career, the IBMA and SPBGMA award-winner and former Rounder Records artist marks her entrance into Country with a surefire Country song. "Like all great Country music, 'They Don't Make 'em Like My Daddy Anymore' springs from life," notes revered tastemaker Robert K. Oermann. "It's honest and soulful and true. Alecia Nugent deserves your heartiest applause. She already has mine. Her re-emergence as a record maker has me tossing my hat in the air."
The single was written by Nugent and top tunesmith Carl Jackson. "They Don't Make 'em Like My Daddy Anymore" is from Nugent's upcoming Keith Stegall-produced CD, THE OLD SIDE OF TOWN, due for release in September.
There are two differently styled tributes Nugent's father on the album: one Country and one Bluegrass. "The song was written as a tribute to my dad, who played in a Bluegrass band and raised me up in Bluegrass; he stood beside me on the stage of the Opry when I made my debut there," confesses Alecia. "He passed away in 2013, and since I came back to music to honor him, it seemed only right to include a Bluegrass version out of respect for him and for all of the fans I made over my years on Rounder."
