By: Richard Lynch
Nashville, TN -March 16, 2016
The Academy of Western Artists has awarded Their 2015 Pure Country Album of The Year Award to Waynesville, Ohio traditional country music artist Richard Lynch for his A Better Place album. The announcement was made March 12, 2016 at the 20th Annual Will Rogers Awards Ceremony held at the Brown Lupton University Union on the grounds of Texas Christian University in Fort Worth Texas.
Richard Lynch is an American country music artist, who has compiled a long list of country hits and chart toppers in the world of traditional country music. The sounds of Richard Lynch are reminiscent of the classics that started it all. The same passion and raw truth that fueled the likes of Conway Twitty, Keith Whitley, Waylon Jennings, George Jones, and Hank Williams is sewn into the fabric of Richard Lynch. In a world of fabricated country stars, Richard Lynch stands out in the crowd as a proud member of the last of a dying breed, the pure country music artist. His rock solid country roots span 3 decades, it comes up with the sun each morning, and it settles in the music he writes and the songs he sings.. The spirit of Richard Lynch is that which is attached to the working man's soul. It's real and it's timeless. It's country, the way country was meant to be.
Living the life he sings about is what gives Richard Lynch the edge as a singer/songwriter. Richard is a hard working, blue collar man. He is a designer and builder of amazing barns, and as should be expected, he is an American farmer. His everyday life and paying his musical dues by performing at 100's of events & shows a year, all across the country, is that which shaped him into a one-of-a-kind performer. Richard's style is true and it carries into his live shows. Much like his music alone, a live performance of the Richard Lynch Band is something you feel. It's something you carry with you when you walk away. If country music is a gift that sustains in our lives wherever we go, Richard Lynch is the messenger.
A Better Place was released on the MOD Label and was produced by Bill Yates. Promotions are by Twang Thang Country - Nashville, TN
