Mizzell father and son make musical magic
By Conor Halpin
Robert Mizzell, the Ballinagore-based country music star, has released a new song with his father, Richard Mizzell.
The song, ‘Like Father Like Son’, was directed and produced by Wayne Thorose of Ballyrose Media, who is Robert’s musical director and band member, from Ballyforan in Roscommon.
‘Like Father Like Son’ is an old bluegrass song, which Richard’s wife Jo introduced to the Mizzell boys, and recorded it with Wayne in November 2019, when Richard and his wife were in Ireland.
A video for the song which was recorded on the day is to be released soon.
The song has been doing well since its release in early November and had made number on in the iTunes.
Robert said he was delighted how the song has made number one In the iTunes charts and hopes everyone will be able to keep downloading it.
He said he misses his father, who is in Louisiana, and he keeps him updated on the progress of the song.
“It’s the first song that my father and I have recorded together in 11 years,” said Robert. “Thank you all for your support.
"Stay safe and I hope to see you all soon.”
