Emerging Artist Richard Lynch Saddles Up With Social Media Single “Keyboard Cowboy”
Two years ago, Richard Lynch topped the country airplay charts with his single, “Cut and Paste.” Written by JK Nick Nichols, the song described using computer technology to bring two lovers together, via the magic of photoshop. The video for “Cut and Paste” went on to receive more than 45,000 views on Youtube, while becoming an Official Selection at several major film festivals.
The track alerted fans that, although the Ohio Country Music Hall of Famer remains true to his traditional country roots, Richard Lynch is no stranger to computer technology, especially social media.
Picking up where “Cut and Paste” left off, Richard Lynch is releasing his most humorous and relatable single to date. “Keyboard Cowboy” hits radio airwaves on, appropriately enough, April 1, 2019…April Fools Day. Penned by Lynch and his wife, Donna, the song tells the familiar tale of today’s fearless social media commentators, hiding faceless, behind their computer keyboards. The track is being released on Fence Row Records.
“Keyboard Cowboy” was recorded at Beaird Music Group Nashville and features some of country music’s best players: Acoustic guitar – Larry Beaird (Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson); Bass guitar – Eli Beaird (Luke Bryan, Joey + Rory); Drums – Steve Brewster (Kenny Rogers, Oak Ridge Boys); Electric guitar – Troy Lancaster (Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins); Keyboards – Billy Nobel (Tim McGraw); Pedal Steel – Scotty Sanders (Trisha Yearwood, Montgomery Gentry); Background Vocals – Russell Terrell (Keith Urban, Scotty McCreery). The track also features a special guest appearance by Donna Lynch, Richard’s wife.
The recording was engineered by Jim DeBlanc (Alison Krauss, Charley Pride) and Rob Lane (Joey + Rory).
“Of all the songs that we’ve helped promote, this is my favorite Richard Lynch track, so far,” said Michael Stover of MTS Management Group. “The timeliness, the humor, and the great melody and vocal are sure to make this another hit for Richard. Saddle Up, Country Fans!”
