At the band’s core is a belief that good music knows no boundaries. They seamlessly flow through a range of musical styles and sounds, from bluegrass to country and pop, gaining the attention of a rapidly expanding fan base worldwide.

Matt Munsey, original member and leader of Monroeville, states, “The title of the project, named from the first song on the album, "Can’t Put Me Out", is for the underdogs – the ones that get underestimated and overlooked. You might get stepped on but they can’t put out your fire. It was a fitting theme that also translated very easily to artwork."
The album is available for streaming so that fans can hear the entire album prior to release. To listen, just Click Here and hear what all the excitement is about.
