5/1/2013 Nashville, TN – Checo Records recording artist, CERRITO returns with a bilingual collaboration project featuring the first single, “South of the Border,” a duet with Oscar nominated country artist Lane Brody.
“Lane was the first chica I approached about recording this song,” states Cerrito. Brody is best known for her 1984 Billboard hit, “The Yellow Rose” and for the Oscar nominated song “Over You” from the film Tender Mercies.
“What’s better than to have The Yellow Rose of Texas sing about the Texas border,” smiles Cerrito.
This single is the debut release from country music’s first bilingual collaboration project, CERRITO y Las Chicas de Country (CERRITO and the Girls of Country), which will be available later this year. It features country songbirds Grammy award-winner Lynn Anderson, Kathie Baillie, Jett Williams (daughter of country music icon Hank Williams), two-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Janie Fricke, twin country music duo Moore & Moore, Americana artist Elizabeth Cook, Liza Martin and CERRITO’s sister Sallyann.
Cerrito has won fans in Mexico, Europe, Japan, Honduras, United Kingdom and is now drawing an interest among American audiences. His career hit full throttle when international “cuchi cuchi” diva (entertainer, guitarist and actress) Charo, caught his show and hired him on the spot to be one of her background singers. His combination of Latin flare and a traditional country vibe creates a unique offering that is attracting a wide range of fans noting his diverse and distinctive music.
