Allison comments, "Having a song recorded by Mr. Stevens is a dream come true. As a kid, I remember listening to his music and memorizing all of the words. I'm thrilled by this news!" She added, "The song idea came about as I sat in a baptismal service and wondered about someone leaving more of his old man behind in the water than he intended. Buddy took the idea and ran with it!"
Ray Stevens will perform "The Baptism Of Stumpy Brown" on his new project, Here We Go Again, which will release on his Player label in mid-February, and will be distributed by Sony music.
