Following up the success of his first two singles, A Paradise Life and I Can’t Remember To Forget, Nashville based country music singer/songwriter Randall Lee Richards hopes to surpass the 60,000 streams, 100,000 combined spins across 100 radio stations, and chart positions (#49 on Music Row, #66 on Billboard’s country indicator chart, and #1 for 5 weeks on New Music Weekly’s country chart) which he previously achieved with the release of his newest single While You Were Sleeping.
It is worth nothing Randall has also been nominated for both New Country Artist Of The Year and Country Cross Over Artist Of The Year.
While You Were Sleeping is the new single and is, like the previous singles, a powerfully potent, radio-ready, emotion evoking country song that is driven by soul stimulating melodies, an engaging vocal performance, and a level of production that enhances each element of the song packed with top-notch musicianship and highly relatable lyrics which have found their way into the airwaves just in time for Valentine’s Day dedications and tributes.
At 12 years of age, Richard convinced his brother to drive him to Nashville. With demo in hand, Richard and his brother walked the sidewalks of Music Row knocking on doors until Richard landed his first record deal. Within a month, he had recorded his first single.
Having performed on well known stages at venues like The Roxy and The Troubadour, Richard’s biggest success lies in the 100+ recordings of his songs by other artists (he is a songwriter with Sony/ATV) and the millions of copies those recordings have sold throughout the years. Receiving mentoring time from icons such as Elton John, Charlie Daniels and Neil Diamond, Richards states,
I am humbled by all those who have taken the time to work with me, inspire me, and encourage me along my journey.”
Richards recently finished recording 14 new songs for his forthcoming album A Heartbreak in the Making due for release mid-2018.
My hope with my music is to always touch people’s emotions with my stories, and to give them melodies that they can’t get out of their heads,” he explains.
