From Nashville comes the latest release from singer/songwriter Daphne Willis titled "Come Together." It features five classic songs by The Beatles, re-imagined with her own special interpretation.

titled "Wildwood Flower," which is a tribute to the music of The Carter

songs. Beginning with the title song, "Wildwood Flower," Cory delivers

of "Tiny Sparrow" and she brings out the traditional tones of "Far Side
Of Lovin' You." She adds four originals on this new release like the
