Rick was born and raised in the musical Mecca of Macon, Georgia. His own songs and red-hot band performances led right out of high school to a publishing contract and new home base in Nashville. Since then, his songs have been covered by artists ranging from Meat Loaf to country crooner David Nail, while he’s continued honing his stage chops as both full-tilt rock-show frontman and acoustic solo performer, opening regularly for acts as diverse as John Hiatt, Zac Brown Band, Better Than Ezra, Brandy Clark, Bonnie Raitt, Kiefer Sutherland and Steve Earle.
His music embodies Americana and his songs and his voice will haunt you with beautiful, brutal honesty- maybe Springsteen meets Townes Van Zant, but the best description is that it’s Rick Brantley.
