World-class entertainer Rick Monroe brings his music and a magnetic presence wherever he goes. With a down-to-earth Country resonance, Monroe is no stranger to the stage: he’s performed in over 17 countries – and every U.S. state except for Oregon.

Among his many career highlights, the seven-time Jagermeister Country Brand Ambassador is honored to have sung the U.S. National Anthem for the 5-year anniversary of the re-opening of diplomatic relations between the countries marking the first time the anthem had been sung at a public event in Vietnam in over 25 years.

He of course followed that up with a Command Performance for the former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, on the USS Sequoia Presidential Yacht in Washington, DC. This lead to a trip to Russia where Monroe performed at several orphanages and was a featured performer on REN TV's Bulat Okudzhava Festival in Moscow, Russia.

True to his globetrotter status, in one particular year alone, he is said to have traveled over 100,000 miles and played over 120 shows.

The Monster Energy Brand Ambassador was among the first country artists to perform in Russia and China. His extensive touring history includes performances throughout Russia, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Hungary, Honduras, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Cuba, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Bahamas, Germany, England, Netherlands and Switzerland, sharing the stage with a who's who of musical greats.

Monroe has headlined his own tours and has opened for the likes of Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Aaron Lewis, Eli Young Band, Charlie Daniels Band, Dwight Yoakam, Montgomery Gentry, Patty Loveless, Trick Pony, Emerson Drive, Pat Green, Randy Houser and Josh Thompson, to mention but a few.

The ‘This Side of You’ and ‘Great Minds Drink Alike’ hitmaker commands quite a huge fan base and his music and videos have been heard and aired on CMT, GAC and TNN in the US and on international outlets, as well. He's been profiled on network shows including Access Hollywood, ET, ABC's ‘On the Red Carpet’ and ‘Extra’, in addition to his numerous performances on national and local talk and morning shows.

Rick's album "Get Loud Get Lit" launched the hit single ‘Honky Tonk Road Trip’ which spawned a television reality series pilot of the same name. His 'Against the Grain' album featured the hit single and video 'Midnight Rider'. Having received rave reviews in print and numerous accolades on television shows such as EXTRA and ET, Rick's gritty Midnight Rider music video still remains a fan favorite.

Having grown up in a variety of places – from California to Connecticut, Kansas, North Carolina, and even England, his love of music and an outgoing personality naturally drew him to the stage. Now based in Nashville, Monroe takes life experiences that we all share... the events that touch our hearts and creates music that speaks directly to the soul in each of us. Whether in an intimate setting, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar, a good old honky-tonk, or on stage playing with his band to thousands at an outdoor festival halfway around the world, Rick strives to connect with his audiences.

The singer/songwriter enjoys sponsorships and/or endorsements with Monster Energy Drink, Banded Brand (Clothing and Water Fowl Gear), Framus Guitars, Speakeasy Jewelry and CRKT Knives.
