THE COUNTRY DUO LIVE AT SUN STUDIO IS HERE!
“Live at Sun Studio” is The Country Duo’s debut EP featuring seven original songs recorded, you guessed it, live at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN. Six of these tunes were featured on the television series Sun Studio Sessions which began airing on PBS stations across the United States in April 2017.
With nearly fifty years of combined gigging and touring experience, the birthplace of rock-n-roll seemed a natural choice to begin the duo’s recording career. The place where Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and Howlin’ Wolf got their start is now where The Country Duo has found theirs as well. Rausch’s voice and Pascolini’s pedal steel and baritone guitar echo the history of what was once Sam Phillips’s Memphis Recording Service.

The Country Duo is excited to finally share with you the first single from our forthcoming EP Live at Sun Studio. “A Girl Again” was written by Kasey Rausch while sitting in the Pecan Grove at the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. It’s a song about honoring the past, being hopeful for the future, all while being present here and now. Stay tuned for the full EP release as seen on PBS, The Sun Studio Sessions.
NEW RELEASE | “TEXAS WITHOUT YOU”
Addiction and mental health issues do not represent the heart of the addict or the depressed. Rather, they speak loudly to a situation that must be met with compassion, connection, and awareness. There is no shame in addiction and mental health instability. It’s hard to know how to help those that are closest to us. Perhaps we can be brave enough to make the mistakes by being willing to have the dialogue. #UseYourVoice #SpeakUp
Kasey Rausch wrote this song after she lost a childhood friend to suicide.
