"My newest CD, the first in 6 years, is now available for sale at our website store.
Recorded in December of 2012, this CD turned out to be a family affair and hence it's title. My talented family all pitched in here and there to bring my little songs to their sweetest place ever. My wife, Shannon and my daughter Morgan, lend their voices to four tracks all told; son, Aron sings great backup harmonies, and son Taylor plays a tasty harmonica part.
Special thanks to Mike Ulvila who sang backup, played numerous instruments, recorded, mixed
and plain put it all together.
Hope you love it!" ~ Richard

Performing their songs were Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris, Connie Smith, Ray Stevens, Richard Leigh, Craig Wiseman, the Shuggah Pies, Aaron Lewis, Jamey Johnson, Striking Matches and American Idol runner-up Kree Harrison. Richard Leigh, also a Hall of Fame member, came out to sing "The Greatest Man I Never Knew," which he co-wrote with Martine. It was easily the most moving performance of the evening. The crowd was reverently quiet as Leigh, accompanying himself on guitar, sang the story of a father who was too busy at the business of providing to say "I love you" to his child.

Supporting Foster Care Students
Richard enthusiastically agreed to return to the VHCC campus, rally his friends from the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and lend his name to the upcoming festival that will celebrate the art of songwriting and benefit VHCC’s Great Expectations Program for foster care students. Because Richard lost his parents at a young age and was later adopted, the cause is one close to his heart.
