Texan-based singer-songwriter, Kimmie Rhodes (pictured), has returned for a short tour to celebrate the release of her double A-side single, I've Been Loved By You — taken from the current album, Walls Fall Down — and, Love & Happiness For You, a previously unreleased track, co-written with Emmylou Harris and recorded as a duet with Willie Nelson.

Kimmie, who has released a dozen solo albums, written three plays and hundreds of songs, plus published a book, recently toured ten European countries in support of her album, which boasts a great interpretation of The Beatles’ Fool On The Hill.

Her songs have been recorded by such stellar acts as Willie Nelson, Wynonna Judd, Trisha Yearwood, Waylon Jennings, Peter Frampton, Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris.

On this tour, Kimmie will be supported by her son, Jeremie Rhodes, who will be performing songs from his current album, The Giants And How To Fight Them.

Catch them at Armagh’s Market Place Theatre tonight, Rathfriland’s Bronte Music Club on Wednesday and Belfast’s Black Box on Thursday.
