There are those rare moments in time when the stars and planets align and something great happens, like when singer/songwriter, Jamie Richards, picks up a pen and paper. The proof can be found in the hits he’s penned, including six number ones! “Second-Hand Smoke,” co-written with Mark Powell, was named song of the year in 2016.
Jamie honed his craft as a staff songwriter for Curb Records in Nashville, working alongside the industry’s finest. He learned how to package a song and develop a signature sound blending honest country roots with an exciting modern edge. And, he brought all that, along with a phenomenal voice, to the Texas/Oklahoma Music scene, quickly establishing him as a top-level pro.
He is respected by his peers, having had songs recorded by Cody Jinks, Hal Ketchum, Ken Mellons, Kevin Fowler and more. His song, “One Tequila” was featured in the movie, “Zoe.”
But for Jamie Richards, it doesn’t stop with the songwriting. Carrying the country music torch, he channels music straight from his heart to the audience. From ballads done in true Merle Haggard style to toe-tapping party tunes, he delivers every time consistently!
There is no one on the Texas Country Music Scene who has the complete package like Jamie does.
His vocal ability is second to none, as evidenced by the many accolades and awards he’s received. He’s lived enough, loved and lost enough and defied the odds enough to write and perform songs that speak with undeniable emotions to the heart. Simply put, Jamie can make his audience feel the lyrics he sings. For that reason, fans will often drive for hundreds of miles to attend a show. Jamie instinctively knows what his followers want - a honky-tonk singer with a bold edge and an honest delivery, and that’s what he gives.
He is the true working man’s entertainer with the heart of a poet and soul of a troubadour.
