"Thirsty Thursday" Featuring Richard Lynch
Thank you so much for talking with us! Was there ever music playing in the kitchen growing up? Oh yes, always!From the round-top radio that sat on top of the Hoosier cabinet. My Dad was a wonderful country music singer who played that good traditional country music all the time.
What is an example of a menu you would prepare if we came over? Biscuits and gravy.
What is your favorite dish to cook? Fresh fish in the Fry Baby!
Favorite music to listen to while you cook? The only kind of music I listen to:Traditional Country
What is your favorite wine? I don't drink wine, but we have friends who have a winery in the UP, Michigan Mackinaw Wines are the best.
How do you drink your coffee? Hot with cream and sugar, honey if I have it.
What is your favorite breakfast? Biscuits and gravy
What is one food that most people seem to like, but you cannot stand to eat. Liver and onions.
What is your favorite sandwich? BLT
Looking back, what was the first album or "Vinyl" you bought? Waylon Jennings
You recently released your new single, "Back in 1953," that you also co-wrote. Tell us about the writing process and where the idea came from. The song is about a guitar my Dad gave to me as a young man, that had fallen in disrepair. I had it restored and got to play it for the first time in almost 40 years. My Dad is gone and playing this guitar gave me the overwhelming feeling he is here with me and wants me to carry on his music to the next generation.
If you could only perform one of your songs for someone who has never heard of you, what song would that be? "Pray on the Radio."
Where did you grow up and how has that influenced your style of music? I grew up in Southwest Ohio on a farm in a small town. My Dad was from Kentucky. And my style of country is true traditional. I love to sing about all things country, agricultural and heartfelt.
At the end of the day, what do you hope is the message of your music? What do you hope people take away from your songs? Authentic and sincere is what I want everyone to feel about my music.
If you could be sponsored by one food/drink brand who would it be and why? Pillsbury....Grand Biscuits. I have a new song everyone will love: "Cathead Biscuits!"
