SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 - Paul Rodgers, longtime singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with Bad Company, is #1 Most Added at AC Radio this week with the single, “I Can’t Stand The Rain,” taken from the upcoming release February 4th of “The Royal Sessions”-a lovingly crafted collection of classic R&B and soul songs re-imagined by the iconic rock singer recorded at Memphis’ Royal Studios, historic home of Willie Mitchelland Hi Records, with many of the musicians who played on the original tracks.
Truly a lifetime in the making, Rodgers has come full circle with “The Royal Sessions” as he pays homage to the legendary hits he collected on 45s released on Stax/Volt, Goldwax and Hi Records-recordings by Otis Redding, Albert King and Ann Peebles which made such an indelible impression on the young Rodgers inspiring him to pursue a career as a singer. The album is also doing well at classic rock and blues radio formats. An exclusive stream of Rodgers’ version of “Walk on By” just posted today on Bllboard.com.
