Melton & Miller Music is excited to announce the release of "Ain’t Going Down to the River", the debut solo single for Missy Armstrong. Written by Beth Husband and Milan Miller, the song puts a new twist on the age-old bluegrass tradition of unsuspecting young girls meeting their demise during a stroll with a suitor. Or in Missy's words, "Not today Mr. Bluegrass Killer Man!"

In addition to Missy’s stellar singing, the track features Terry Baucom (Banjo), Seth Taylor (Mandolin), Aubrey Haynie (Fiddle), Milan Miller (Guitar, Harmony Vocal), and Buddy Melton (Upright Bass, Harmony Vocal).

The bluegrass world was first introduced to Missy’s voice through her work with the Michigan-based band Detour. With songs like Too Blue to Have the Blues, Lovin’ Liza Jane, and Quarterline Road, listeners and long-time industry professionals alike became instant fans.

When speaking about this new collaboration, Buddy Melton says, “Every once in a great while a voice comes along that touches your very soul. The first time I heard Missy sing was one of those moments for me. When I finally got to meet her, I quickly learned that in addition to having a great voice, she is one of the most down to earth and genuine people on the planet. I can’t wait for the world to hear Ain’t Going Down to the River and the other songs that we have recorded with her.” Milan Miller adds, “Aside from being my favorite female singer in the genre, Missy has the rare ability of delivering a lyric with such honesty and emotion that the characters and images come to life. As a songwriter, there is no greater thrill than having someone with that gift singing songs that I have written.”
