Charlestown's Kathy Crouse Records Her Original Country Song

CATONSVILLE, MD (July 5, 2016)  -- Charlestown retirement community resident Kathy Crouse this week traveled to the Garrick Alden Studios in Silver Spring, MD, to record vocals for "Shining Star," a song she co-wrote with Dean Crawford, a past recipient of the Maryland Music Association's Songwriter of the Year award.

Crouse plays keyboard and Crawford, who is Charlestown's Medical Center Practice Administrator, plays guitar on the recording.

This Loretta Lynn-esque song tells the story of Crouse's relentless ability to overcome life's challenges.

A CD and accompanying video are now being produced.
