Debut single “Never Say Never” by Kristi Stanley is scheduled to drop on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from Union House Records. The long awaited project, Heart Wide Open has been in the making for a while now. With that being said, it promises to be worth the wait with something for everyone to enjoy.
Kristi Stanley grew up in Pikeville Kentucky and is the wife of Ralph Stanley II. As a young girl, she recalls spending hours singing along with the legendary Dolly Parton and dreaming of becoming a big star. She recorded her own renditions of Dolly’s songs, singing them over and over again until every note was perfect. She met Ralph II while she and her family were vacationing in Nashville sitting in on a taping of Prime Time Country. Ralph II was performing with his father, The Late Legendary Dr. Ralph Stanley and the Clinch Mountain Boys. Two years later, the couple were married and have two beautiful children Taylor and Ralph Stanley III. As the children have grown older, she felt it was time to start performing again which is what she has been doing for the past year with her band, Running Blind and turning many heads in the industry.
Never Say Never is an original tune written by Candace Randolph from Nashville Tennessee. On this track, Kristi is joined by Alecia Nugent and Wayne Taylor on harmony vocals.
“After being in this business for a quarter of a century I am always honored to be asked to be a part of anyone's recording, especially one as good as this. Kristi is a truly gifted singer and her choice of material for this record is amazing. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of it."
