Ballina country star releases new single

Henry McGlade

Ballina country singer Gerry Guthrie has released a new single, ‘Why You Been Gone So Long’. A cover version of a hugely popular American country song, it was originally written and recorded by Mickey Newbury, a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame.
Gerry plays a number of guitar solos on the up-tempo track, which will also be included on his forthcoming album, due to be released later this year.
Gerry has come a long way since his teenage years with Ballina band The New Blues and is now firmly established on the country scene here and abroad. The multi-award-winning singer has a fully packed schedule for 2014, included is a welcome return to the Highlands of Scotland this month.
