“Mary Sarah has recorded a new album, Bridges-Great American Country Duets, featuring collaborations with artists such as Vince Gill, Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, The Oak Ridge Boys and more. One song from the album is “Heartaches By The Number” on which she duets with Ray Price during one of his final studio appearances before his passing. The song was one Ray had on the charts himself back in the 1950s. This version stays true to the original while showcasing Mary Sarah’s vocals. She seems perfectly suited to sing traditional country music and bring it to a new generation.”
