The Gringos Newsletter

Winter 2020

The wait is almost over... 6 more days !!

The Gringos new new single titled See The Light is just days away from being released.  Written in the 70's by Tyler "Ty" Newcomb, the song's message deals with topics concerning our nation that are still relevant today.  Joe Vaughn brightened up the lyrics by adding a few of his own, and the song's arrangement was a typical Gringo group collaboration. 

This recording features Dino Govini on Tenor Sax.  Dino is one of the premier Sax players working on the East Coast these days and the Gringos are very fortunate to have him add some killer sax licks to this track.

The song will be released on the band's own label, Leer Records and is the first release since the bands initial album release in 1975. This is also the first song to be added to the bands new publishing division, Pack O' Weddels Publishing.

See The Light will be available on all digital streaming and download platforms...soon!

One Good Reason

The story of one song, two versions by two different producers...

This video tells the story of the song, One Good Reason, that Jim wrote in 1974-75 that ended up becoming two completely different songs with the same lyrics, and both songs were produced by award-winning producers, Tommy "Snuff" Garrett, Steve Dorff,  with the United Artists version, and Billy Williams with the remake of the original version.

Please take a moment to read the additional notes located in the section marked "Show More" just below the video itself.
