BLANCO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, February 21, 2017 — The secret to Richard Lynch’s success as a country music singer/songwriter is his authenticity and devotion to performing and preserving traditional country music for mainstream audiences.

“I want to be known for keeping real traditional country music being recorded and written,” Lynch explains on the latest edition of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS, the popular podcast for everyone who lives and loves the rural lifestyle. “And if they hear my name, Richard Lynch, they are going to associate that with real traditional country music.”

Lynch, who was raised on a farm in southwestern Ohio that he still owns and works, is a member of the Independent Country Music Association Hall of Fame and was nominated by the group as Best Male Country Artist. His song, “A Better Place,” was named the #1 True Country Song for 2016 by Roots Music Report.

Lynch explains that his music embraces the steel guitar, the fiddle, and three-part harmony: The songs that have a storyline that you can connect with, whether it’s a happy song or a sad song. “Country music was meant to be relatable,” he says.

Lynch, who along with the Richard Lynch Band, is currently on tour in Texas, tells RANCHCAST that he draws his songwriting inspiration, in part, from the people he meets and the tales they tell. He also draws upon his own upbringing and the all-American values that farm life instilled in him.

Lynch’s newest song, Love Tattoo, which he co-wrote, is a military tribute duet that he recorded with #1 Billboard charting artist, Ronnie McDowell. The touching single, officially released on January 21st in Nashville, benefits Richard’s Love Tattoo Foundation – a non-profit that he established several years back to honor and assist American veterans.

“Richard’s music captures the heart and soul of American ranchers, farmers, and other countryfolk,” says host Lem Lewis, The Ranch Broker. Lem is a fourth-generation Texas rancher whose full-service brokerage company serves both land buyers and sellers, concentrating on the Texas Hill Country, South Texas, and West Texas.
As Lynch recalls on RANCHCAST, he first performed on a stage when he was 8-years-old, joining his talented father, a country music entertainer, and “Mr. Grand Ole Opry,” himself, Porter Wagoner, who were doing a show together. Young Richard, who was in the audience watching his dad and Porter Wagoner, stepped to the microphone and sang “I’ve Got a Tiger by the Tail,” the song made famous by Buck Owens and the Buckaroos.

As Lynch recalls, “I was bit ever since by the country music bug.”
