BRANDON RICKMAN has created a definite buzz over the past several years in the Bluegrass and Country community with his distinctive vocals and songwriting talents. “YOUNG MAN, OLD SOUL” is his first solo album and comes right on the heels of the 1 Bluegrass Unlimited album “No Turning Back” from the Lonesome River Band of which Brandon is their lead singer and guitarist.
“YOUNG MAN, OLD SOUL” is a unique album of creative acoustic music, highlighted by Brandon’s songwriting where he co-wrote 10 of the 12 songs. He also called upon his talented friends, who happen to be some of today’s top hit-makers - songwriters such as Chris Stapleton (SteelDrivers), Tammy Rogers (SteelDrivers), Jerry Salley, Kevin Denney, Charley Stefl, and musicians Terry Eldridge, Jamie Johnson (Grascals), Larry Cordle, Randy Kohrs, Aaron McDaris (Rhonda Vincent & The Rage), Andy Ball, Mike Anglin (Lonesome River Band), Jenee’ Fleenor (Terri Clark) and more.
The first single, “Always Have, Always Will” is a fiery up tempo song written by Chris Stapleton and Brandon Rickman which contains an incredible intro and reprise by Randy Kohrs and features Brandon’s powerful lead vocals and beautifully blended harmony vocals by Terry Eldridge.
Produced by Jimmy Metts & Brandon Rickman, “YOUNG MAN, OLD SOUL” is sure to generate tons of radio and internet airplay this summer on many Bluegrass, Country & Americana stations all over the world. Brandon is currently on tour with the Lonesome River Band and will be heavily promoting both the current LRB album “No Turning Back” and his new solo album.
