“Cuchi-Cuchi” Hits Nashville
Charo in Music City for Cerrito release party
The international comedienne/singer/musician Charo—who became a household name in the '70s with her "Cuchi-Cuchi" trademark and passionate Latin music—swept into Music City Monday, Oct. 29, to host the release party for Cerrito's new They Know You're Gone CD. After being introduced by the vivacious Charo, Cerrito, known for country songs with a dynamic blend of English and Spanish lyrics, delivered a high-energy show to a packed crowd at The Rutledge in downtown Nashville. Some of the songwriters who contributed tunes for They Know You're Gone attended the release party, including Hank Adam Locklin, Don Goodman and Bob Morrison. Charo and Cerrito have been friends for years, and Cerrito once performed nightly for two years at Charo's nightclub in Hawaii. Earlier in the day, Charo visited the offices of the Country Music Association and Country Weekly.
