WAYNESVILLE, OH -- Richard Lynch, the country music artist known for his authentic storytelling, is set to release two new singles that showcase his ability to craft compelling narratives through song. The singles, "Grandpa and Grandma" and "Glad Our Bridge has Burned," each tell a unique story that resonates with listeners on different levels.

"Grandpa and Grandma" is a heartfelt tribute to family and heritage, inspired by conversations between Richard and his keyboard player, Tony Williams, about their Eastern Kentucky roots. The song reflects on the values of hard work, faith, and family, highlighting the importance of Appalachian culture. Richard's father, who was one of nine siblings, and Tony's father, one of eleven, provided the rich backdrop for the song's narrative. The track holds a special significance as it was the favorite song of their late guitar player, Tim Bennington, adding a poignant layer to its release. "Grandpa and Grandma" will be promoted to Christian radio, offering a message of hope and resilience. It is the follow-up to his #1 Christian Voice Magazine single, "High Above the Midnight Sky".

On the other hand, "Glad Our Bridge has Burned" takes a different tone, drawing inspiration from a local Cincinnati news story. The song was inspired by the story of a semi-truck crash on the I-75 Brent Spence Bridge that caused a massive fire, leading to the closure and repair of the bridge for months. Richard also weaves in personal stories, including his wife’s father's recounting of a dramatic falling out with her mother, resulting in a humorous yet poignant country narrative. Despite its seemingly dark subject matter, the track embodies Richard's ability to find light and humor in life's challenges, making it a standout country song. "Glad Our Bridge has Burned" will be promoted to country radio, promising to captivate audiences with its engaging storytelling.
