Until Death Do Us Part
Songwriter/artist Ron Thompson is a real world Tennessee hillbilly who grew up in East Tennessee and obtained a degree in Electrical/Electronics engineering. Ron studied piano as a child and taught himself to play rythym and lead guitar. He also plays harmonica, bass guitar, and electronic keyboard. Ron first began recording music in the sixties and did a couple of pop 45 singles which he never released to radio. Ron demonstrates his ability as a musician by performing the background music for tracks one and two. A couple of years back Ron recorded an album and other songs produced by recording industry legend Col. Buster Doss. The background music for the remaining tracks on this CD was done on Music Row at Nashville, Tennessee and some released on the Stardust of Nashville Label. Over the past several years Ron has released music via various labels including Nite*Sky Records, Glory Train Records, Stardust of Nashville, Hilltopper Music Group, and MTM Records. Among those other artists who have released songs on the same labels and compilation cds with Ron are Joann Cash, Tommy Cash, Ernie Ashworth, Andrew Dean, Beau Renfro, The Helms, River Jordan, Marvin Marrow, Larry Cochran, Carol Decker, the Son-Liters, Bob Mayfield, and Kimberley Bibb-Marrs accompanied by Marty Stuart. A bluegrass instrumental featuring Ron and the Carter boys was released on an MTM label compilation which featured Elvis Presley Jr. on an adjacent track. Ron has had top 40 charting songs in three genres of music including independent country, bluegrass, and country gospel. This CD contains a combination of lyrics taken from real life events and lyrics written about a fictional dreamy world of fairies and gennies. Momma\'s Ring is a powerful true life story about the lost wedding ring which belonged to Ron\'s mother who lost her husband because of a construction accident yet maintained her faithfulness to him until her death some eighteen years later. This is the theme of the CD which is \'Until Death Do Us Part\'. If you like music sung in perfect harmony and pitch with precise timing you will like these songs. Most of the songs on this CD feature Ron singing DUAL vocals on opposing tracks in perfect timing and pitch together. If you think it\'s easy to perform the same song TWICE and identical with pitch, volume, and timing GIVE IT A TRY. Ron has done that on these songs and so accurately that both left and right channel tracks sound as if done as one vocal. Ron is a sponsored musician on the Rev. Wayne Graham web site and regularily has his music aired on the national and internationally syndicated Gospel Classics and Country Nights programs. Those playlists go to over 1000 national and international stations.
