Big changes are taking place for Richie, who has already been acknowledged on CMA's “Who New To Watch” list, as well as making his debut in Country Weekly magazine’s "Who's New" feature.

Recording sessions with producer J. Gary Smith, of Cotton Valley Records, have already generated two more charted radio singles on Music Row from Richie’s latest CD “Down Memory Lane” (August 2010). The emotionally charged tune “Losing You” was followed up by the hard driving single “Wichita” which climbed it’s way to #1 on the Indie World Chart. Richie has been writing like never before in 2011 and songs like “When A Good Man Dies” and “Kiss My Butt” have already been well received in Richie’s live shows, as he has given his fans a glimpse of what’s to come on his next CD.
