Richie Allbright / Press

“Perfect example of the stone cold country revival that’s out there these days. Allbright’s voice is a potent mix of attributes from the great ones, as if he were some bastard love child of Merle Haggard and David Allan Coe. People just don’t sing like this anymore, but Richie surely does. Evocative, mesmerizing, pure-dee powerful stuff. And with songs to match. “Down Her Memory Lane” would have been a number one hit for Waylon in the ‘70s, and “Where The Rainbow Hits The Ground” would be a chart topper today if the listening public at large had even an ounce of soul. This is country music, the raw and gritty kind, the sort of new old songs that remember why wordplay is important and demonstrate just what exactly an honest-to-God tunesmith can do.”

"Ever think they aren't making music like Willie and Waylon made back in the 70’s? Well, thanks to Texas singer songwriter Richie Allbright, that’s not the case anymore. His latest album, ‘Kickin’ Down the Doors,’ was released last month and is one of my favorites for the year. Be warned, this ain’t Rascal Flatts country, this is Waylon ‘Honky Tonk Heroes’ country. You can drink beer and two step to every song on this album. A lot of Richie’s buddies pitched in to lend a hand, like Billy Jo High and Jarrod Birmingham, who not only played on the album, they co-produced it. In addition to his original songs, like ‘Boland and Birmingham,’ he also wisely chose some classic country tunes by Merle Haggard and Gene Watson. Like all good Texas music, Richie’s album was independently released, so be sure to pick up your copy today."

“There is much today that passes as country music. There are many who pass as country music singers. The atrocities are all there. Just listen to modern radio. But every now and then and often by a stroke of good fortune, you stumble on to someone, usually outside the main fold of high rotation and industry dictates who restores the faith. Every now and then, you hear someone with something who grabs and holds the attention. Meet Richie Allbright. The voice comes travelled and worn. There’s a hurt. There’s passion and there’s a revealed history and an awkward truth to the tunes on his debut, “If I’d Known Then” (Electric Cactus Records). Richie Allbright has lived his music.
