With the passing of International Country music icon Kenny Rogers last year, Reggae crooner Rad Dixon has decided to release a special tribute to this influential artiste with a Reggae cover of Write Your Name, a song originally released by Rogers in 1997.
Rad Dixon considers himself a fan of Kenny Rogers and grew up listening to his many worldwide hits. The death of the award winning artiste of natural causes, at the age of 81 last March was a surprise to Dixon, but he hopes Rogers is sleeping in peace after such an amazing musical career.
“The Write Your Name single is one of my all-time favorites, his music is always full of love and positivity, we need more of that in our Jamaican music,” Rad explained
Rad and his team, Tasjay Production and DJ Treasure, decided that this was the perfect track to release during Reggae Month. A real time lovers rock flow reminiscent of artistes like; Ken Boothe, Dennis Brown, John Holt, Sanchez and Bitty McLean.
Rad believes that even though he has covered a contemporary Country and Western song that fans will love his version because he brings an authentic Reggae blend to the already popular material.
“Music no matter the genre can affect and inspire people in general. This song can speak for many cause even the thought of someone you love can put a smile on your face,” Rad added
The Write Your Name single is now available on all digital platforms. Rad Dixon will also be releasing a collaboration with Luciano called Working Hard in March produced by his Management team Tasjay Productions.
