HAZARD — Local resident Bob Monk is a song writer, who writes music under the name The Gospel Ranger. The gospel music genre is extremely popular in the Unites States, and the vast number of gospel fans are always hungry for different voices and new songs. Bob’s latest single is titled Wake Up America and it has been recorded by HeartSong/Nashville.
Wake Up America can be heard on YouTube by simply typing Bob Monk into the YouTube search bar. The song is also receiving radio play and can be found on Facebook and Reverbnation.
Wake Up America was actually written in 2014 by Monk. The message, however, transcends years. Bob Monk’s vast experience with music has payed off with a record label released single. Look forward to more music from Bob Monk in the future.
