Rick toured heavily this year, entertaining fans with the sultry Billboard hit, “This Side of You,” and other songs from GYPSY SOUL. Monroe also revisited tunes from his previous project, IT’S A LOVE THING, including the previous Billboard hit “Great Minds Drink Alike.” Rick made time to participate in several charity events, including a July house build for the Murfreesboro, Tennessee chapter of Habitat For Humanity.
