“I am beyond thrilled to announce the release of a new single “My Daddy’s Shoes” to the global radio world. I wrote the song to honor the Father’s Day Tradition, it is based on my relationship with my dad who tragically passed away in 1989. It took me nearly 30 years to come up with the words to properly pay tribute to dad in a song, but it was well worth the wait. It was written from my feelings, from the heart.

‘My Daddy’s Shoes’ is a collaboration with good friend Troy Engle and was recorded at Troy’s ‘The Track Shack’ studio. It features Troy on vocals and all instruments.

I sincerely hope that ‘My Daddy’s Shoes’ helps to enhance everyone’s Father’s Day celebration this year, and for many years to come.

A big thank you to Robert and Lynda at AirPlay Direct for their support and guidance that has proven invaluable in helping me reach so many radio programmers through APD, and continuing to build my RLM Music Brand.”

 “The love behind the words from Rick Lang’s pen are clearly evident, and invoke the inevitable smiles and tears while remembering my own monumental efforts to fill “My Daddy’s Shoes.” Beautiful song.”

“Over the years one begins to realize our dads knew more than we thought they did. This beautiful new song "My Daddy's Shoes" by Rick Lang puts it all in perspective and renews the memories of the love that father's give to each of us.” ~ Jim Fisher, Acoustic Crossings WGCS
