Ricochet-”Daddy’s Money”

Columbia Records

Back in October of 1993, I took out a classified ad in The Nashville Scene, looking for a good musical opportunity. The newly formed group “Ricochet” was still looking for a permanent keyboardist, steel guitarist and bass player. I joined in October, followed by Greg Cook (bass) in January and Teddy Carr (steel) in February. Already in the band were Heath Wright (lead vocals, elec. guitar) and brothers Jeff Bryant (drums) and Jr Bryant (fiddle). Back in the mid 1990′s country music was incredibly popular, as evidenced by the number of country dance halls and big clubs that featured new and upcoming talent. We honed our craft on the road, playing 5 nights a week around the country. In June of 1994, Columbia records signed us to a developmental deal (we cut 3 songs in the studio). When they signed us to the label, our producers (Ron Chancey and Ed Seay) started looking for songs. we came across Daddy’s Money soon after Ron Wallace (another SONY recording artist) sang the demo. We immediately put the song on hold, and it became our only #1 record.

Much more on Ricochet in the coming blog posts. For now, enjoy our first music video, shot at Little Bit Of Texas, St. Louis MO, November 1995.
