Nashville, Tenn. (September 15, 2022) — Whysper Dream Music proudly announces the new single, “That’ll Get Me Through Missouri,” by the multi-award-winning Larry Stephenson Band. This catchy new tune was written by Larry Stephenson and Donna Ulisse and is the first single from the band’s upcoming album, Cast A Lonesome Shadow, set for release early next year.
Donna Ulisse, an IBMA and SBPGMA Songwriter of the Year and the 2022 SBPGMA Female Vocalist award winner, enthusiastically said, “I am so proud to call Larry Stephenson one of my dearest friends but even MORE proud to call this authentic, oh, so talented bluegrass friend of mine, my cherished co-writer! ‘That’ll Get Me Through Missouri’ was so fun to collaborate on, and Stephenson sets it on complete fire when he sings it!”
“We just started performing this song on our set, and it flows so well. Some songs will do that more than others. Derek and Nick really shine on this good up-tempo tune co-written with my good friend Donna Ulisse,” explained Stephenson. “It’s a crowd pleaser so far and sure to be in the set-list for years to come!”
“That’ll Get Me Through Missouri” features Larry Stephenson on lead vocals and mandolin, Nick Dauphinais on guitar and harmony vocals, Derek Vaden on banjo and harmony vocals, and Andy Brown on bass. The beautiful and unique single cover art for “That’ll Get Me Through Missouri” was created by photographer and graphic designer, Dreama Stephenson of DreamBEE Art Photography who got her inspiration from the song lyrics.
The new single is available to radio programmers via Get It Played, AirPlay Direct, and for direct download from Whysper Dream Music and Hope River Entertainment. The digital release is set for later this month.
