Since the release of his 2013 debut album, The Last of a Dying Breed, Richard Lynch has been blazing a groundbreaking trail and leaving a legacy of “real” traditional country music in his wake. In 2015, Lynch solidified his place as one of country’s most original and authentic artists with the release of his breakthrough album, A Better Place. The album’s title track became a #1 AM/FM airplay chart single and was named the #1 True Country Song of 2016, according to Roots Music Report. Lynch followed this enormous success with a smoldering pair of chart-topping radio single releases: his blue collar anthem, “We’re American Proud” and “Love Tattoo,” a duet with country star, Ronnie McDowell. The latter was released as a benefit for the Love Tattoo Foundation, an organization founded by Lynch.

The album will be released on April 1, 2017 at a benefit concert for Richard’s Love Tattoo Foundation. The first single, “Cut And Paste” (written by JR Nick Nichols) will be released to radio on the same day.
Mending Fences was produced by Edgel Groves (“Footprints in the Sand”) and Randall Griffith. It was recorded at Long Hollow Sound Studios/ Harrison Entertainment Group in Gallatin, TN by Shea Henley and Michael Walter. The album features a duet with #1 Bluegrass Artist and Grammy Award Winner, Rhonda Vincent. Musicians on the album include Tim Grogan, drums (Ty Herndon, Aaron Tippin); Jimmy Nichols, keyboards (Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood); Steve Hinson, pedal steel (Luke Bryan, Randy Travis); Danny Parks, guitar/fiddle (Brooks & Dunn, Blake Shelton); Jimmy Carter, bass (Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley); and Dane Bryant, keyboards (Olivia Newton-John, Clint Black).
”This album is dedicated to all the fine folks who love and appreciate my real country music and have followed my music through all the years,” says Richard Lynch. “Love is like an old fence row; there will be some holes as time goes by…this album is a testament to the holes in real country music I am trying to fill.”
