Title - 'Smoke Out The Window'
Artist - Rick Monroe

For those not in the know, Rick Monroe is a country music singer/songwriter and road warrior who enjoys bringing his music directly to the people.

Luckily for all us fans, the Monster Energy Drink-sponsored artist has just-released his eighth album, Smoke Out The Window via Thermal Entertainment.

Sharing the expanded sonic palette found deep within the grooves of his most fully realized album to date with all his fans, the new album most assuredly continues to bring his music and magnetic presence to the masses with a down-to-earth country resonance.

1. 'Good As Gone'
2. 'Cocaine Cold & Whiskey Shakes'
3. 'Smoke Out The Window'
4. 'Nothing To Do With You'
5. 'I'll Try'
6. 'Truth In The Story'
7. 'Stomp'
8. 'Rage On'
9. 'This Side Of The Dirt'
10. 'October'
11. 'Tempt Me'

The first track at the gate is the deep south rocker 'Good As Gone,' which he backs up seamlessly with both the Kid Rockesque mid-tempo ballad 'Cocaine Cold & Whiskey Shakes' and then the title track, 'Smoke Out The Window.'

The romantic hipsway of 'Nothing To Do With You' is then followed by the raw piano ballad 'I'll Try,' with the rock 'n' roller 'Truth In The Story' along next.

The passive slow burn of 'Stomp' is backed by the ballad 'Rage On,' with the upbeat southern rock of 'This Side Of The Dirt' along thereafter. The album then rounds out with 'October' and then another emotive ballad in the form of 'Tempt Me.'
