Mandy Z & Rural Route One / Blog

New Single, See It From The Other Side, is NOW AVAILABLE to Purchase!

"See It From The Other Side", Duet Ft. Mandy Z & Brandon Dean, is the long awaited Brand New 2015 Release from Mandy Z & Rural Route One!

Available NOW for Purchase on CD Baby, Reverbnation, & COMING SOON to iTunes, iHeart Radio, Amazon, Spotify, & Many More! http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/mandyzruralrouteone

Keeping with her style of writing that is becoming recognized, it is no surprise to those that know Mandy, that this is a song that tells it like it is; a story that so many can relate to about heartbreak, getting over it, & moving on. “[Don’t let this “Local” Lady of Country Music fool ya’…she’s a Firecracker on Stage, full of energy and yet can sing a Country Ballad so sultry that it leaves the boys breathless]" -C2E Review

With so many Male dominated & Male Perspective Songs about Drinkin', Girls, & Pick Up Trucks, like Mandy and Co-Writer, Jim Billmeier (Drinkin Song, 2012 that placed well in the Texaco Country Showdown), Mandy Zahn & Brandon Dean (See It From The Other Side, 2015), have written a song that's a bit different that tells an honest & real story.

Thank you all for your continued support!!! We appreciate all of you MZ & RR1 Rockin' Honky Tonkin' Friends more than we can put into words!


New Music Coming Soon!

We've been busy recording at Hammerhead Studios, laying down tracks for our upcoming new single, along with a few other surprises!

As a Songwriter, you write some stuff that ends up in a pile shoved in a box never to be looked at again, some stuff that is alright.... good tunes, some pretty good stuff, & then the ones you REALLY dig... and it is a great feeling to know you can really reach someone based on the response that happens when you play it Live. Then the time comes to put it all together and I am lucky to have a great group of fellers in my band and that they know how to translate massive technical terms, such as the "Do the weeeeEEEEEEErrrrrRRRRR thing" or the "Doodoos" or "Dumdums"... in various combinations.... which aren't what you think they are, and they are perfectly translated and executed by the Rhythm section. A while back, fellow Songwriter & Peer in Country Music, Brandon Dean & I got together and wrote what will be our next single from Mandy Z & Rural Route One as a Duet with Mandy Z & Brandon Dean on Vocals. I can't express in words how much I truly appreciate the guys in my band & Bob for making this come together, along with Engineer & Producer Ken Perrone at Hammerhead Studios! We hope you all dig it as much as we do and THANK YOU for continuing to follow us on our musical journey! Stay tuned Rockin Honky Tonkers!!!!! - M xoxo
