Steve Richard’s latest single “Stomp,” written and produced by John Rich, is being shipped to country radio stations across the U.S. June 4. The song’s video was shot on May 19 in Watertown, just outside of Nashville, with Roman White (Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift). “Everything Beautiful to Me,” the first single from Richard’s self-titled debut album, was also written and produced by John Rich.
Richard’s dynamic stage presence and trademark gritty vocals reflect years of paying dues, and he brings an impressive track record as a seasoned road vet. At one point performing 100 club dates a year, Richard has also toured the Midwest and South as both a headliner and opening act for Lynyrd Skynyrd, Dickey Betts, .38 Special, Junior Brown, Halfway to Hazard, Montgomery Gentry, Van Zant and ZZ Top.
In the summer of 2008, Richard hit the road with Lynyrd Skynyrd and toured/performed with Dierks Bentley and rising country band Whiskey Falls. For his self-titled debut album, Richard teamed with producer/engineer Michael Bradford (Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker, Travis Tritt) and Grammy Award winning composer Jeff Silbar (Alabama, Janie Fricke, Bette Midler).
A line dance for “Stomp,” developed by famed line dance choreographer Barry Amato (TNN’s Wildhorse Saloon Show, Club Dance), will soon be introduced to clubs. Richard is also set to attend the upcoming CMA Music Festival in Nashville, June 11-14.
