PRESS RELEASE: Sweet Dixie Records, Inc. Country recording artists Jeannie Romeo and Alice Lockwood are excited about the soon to be released third cd of originals entitled “The Ladies Love Country.” Romeo and Lockwood recorded their third CD at two studios in Nashville. The music tracks were done at Water Shed Studios with Arvel Bird coordinating the project along with the ladies who did much pre production work on their new CD. All the songs were written by the duo or individually and Jeannie and Alice say they are so proud of their latest effort. Randy Gardiner did the engineering for the music tracks and is a well respected engineer worked with many country stars such as Steve Wariner on their projects. The musicians on this CD are like a who's who of players in the country music field. On guitar, Andy Reiss who played and worked on Romeo and Lockwood’s last two cd’s has been on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry working with artists such as Reba McIntyre.
Romeo and Lockwood decided to visit the Opry on a night off from recording only to find Andy playing guitar for some opry stars that evening !!!!! Peter Young, whom the girls call super drummer has worked with Loretta Lynn and the ladies were happy he could play on their latest CD. Pat Sievers, who not only played steel guitar on the session but also played banjo has been on tour with the Everly Brothers in England. Alice and Jeannie were happy to talk about the work they did with the Everlys with Pat. It’s clear that Pat is a real pro and a true professional. Many of the musicians are multi-talented and no exception is Arvel Bird who has helpedproduce the three CDs for Romeo and Lockwood. Be sure to listen for his great fiddle playing on many of the songs on this CD. On bass guitar is Dow Tomlin who has played with numerous country stars. On acoustic guitar is Mike Harrison. Mike’s studio, Harrison House Studios is top notch and Jeannie Romeo felt right at home recording her vocals. Wife Julie, really made us feel at come whipping up some delicious banana bread. Jeannie cannot say enough about the quality of the studio and professionalism of Mike!!!!! Jeannie was thrilled to have her favorite background vocalist on this third CD Neatha Larson-Schrimpf. Romeo and Lockwood were happy to have Michael Lusk as background vocalist along with Neatha on this CD. Michael has been on tour with Loretta Lynn. I Guess you can't get better than that! Of course Jeannie and Alice had Mom yola there who we now call "The Ear". If Yola says it's good, well it is!

In 1991, a building at Fort Drum was dedicated to Alice's cousin, Aunt Katie's son, Sergio Gherardini, a fallen hero whose heroic deeds in saving the lives of his fellow soldiers in Vietnam earned him the Silver Star and other honors. The day was beautiful and the soldiers and their families were touched by the rousing performance of Romeo & Lockwood. It will be a day remembered by all.

Making The Rounds

Jeannie Romeo and Alice Lockwood have been very busy lately. They've been doing radio interviews, filming a TV show in Nashville, and performing on a famous Nashville stage. They jumped from number 42 to number 16 on Top Trax, a Traditional Country Music chart that tracks radio airplays of artists, sharing recognition with such legends as Ray Price, Johnny Cash, and Randy Travis.

On January 28, 2003 , Jeannie and Alice were interviewed by Dick Boston of WBET- AM in Brockton, Ma. He asked them how long they'd been together and seemed impressed to hear that they are experienced performers. He also asked them what their favorite cut on their CD, "HEARTFELT," was. Jeannie said "It's Been A While," and Alice said that all of the songs are "our babies," but picked "Send Him An Angel." All in all it was a successful interview for the duo.

On January 31, 2003 , the ladies were invited to be featured guests of Tom Wardle at WDVR-FM in Sergentsville, NJ. He, too, was impressed with their easygoing, honest nature, saying that Jeannie and Alice were "very bubbly" on the air and he liked that. He played several tracks from the "HEARTFELT" CD: "I Can't Read Your Silent Mind," "Don't Turn The Light On," (commenting on Jeannie's "beautiful vocal"), "It's Been A While," "I Almost Went To Georgia," and "One More Teardrop," which has been receiving much airplay on other stations as well. Both DJ and guests seemed to enjoy themselves, proving once again that Jeannie and Alice love what they do.

February 3, 2003 , brought another successful interview. Jeannie and Alice were guests on the Twenty-first Century Music Radio show, hosted by Diane Corrado, on WGBB in Woodbury, NY. Ms. Corrado played 4 tracks from the CD: "I Can't Read Your Silent Mind," "Don't Turn The Light On," "It's Been A While," and "Is This The End Again?"

February 15, 2003 , it was off to Nashville for the  filming of the Nashville On Stage TV show, which aired several times on Nashville's local Channel 19. Ernie Simms, the host, said he "likes that New York Country." It speaks to the no- pretense quality with which Jeannie and Alice perform and proves that Country is Country, no matter where it comes from. Their performances of "Don't Turn The Light On" and "It's Been A While," were well received.
