Richard Lynch is an artist extraordinaire. The Country musician has accomplished several astounding feats in music and has an impeccable musical repertoire few can match up to. Aside from being a Chart-topper with songs like He’ll Make Everything Alright, the Ohio native is a member of both the Ohio and Independent Country Music Halls of Fame. He has worked and made duets with several musical legends like Grammy-winning artist Rhonda Vincent and Ronnie McDowell. His latest single, Supernaw, is just but a continuation of the beautiful story that is Richard Lynch’s musical journey.
A tribute to his deceased friend, the Iconic Doug Supernaw, Supernaw is the classic Country song. In his signature guttural, butter-like voice, he heaps praises on his friend and tells stories about him in a manner that makes the song sound like an audio-biography that is flavored with a beautiful melody.
In the first verse, Richard says that he wishes the line “My guitar drips Country” was his and that “It came from a conversation a Country legend left behind” an apparent reference to Supernaw. In perhaps one of the most heartwarming lines, Lynch lists his favorite Country musicians and names Supernaw among them; “Yes, I like Mall, and I like George, and a guy named Supernaw.”
He then expounds on Supernaw’s immense love for music in the lively, harmonized chorus when he sings, “A Texas guy who loves Country music, He sang songs from the heart, get his fans in the palm of his hands.” It’s incredible how Lynch says so much about Supernaw in a few choice words that are so poetic and elegant that the listener has no option but to marvel at his exceptional songwriting. He continues to detail how Supernaw’s “career was flying high” and how his Country shows would draw multitudes of fans, further proof of his popularity in the world of Country music. In a melancholic turn, Richard bewails the unpredictability of life and Supernaw’s demise by the words “No one is promised tomorrow” before thanking Supernaw for the music he made.
At the backdrop of all these flattering words are the melodic strums of an acoustic guitar that provide a beautiful soundscape upon which Richard’s rich vocal timbre pours words of tribute to Doug. The song Supernaw is a wonderful song to listen to as well as to feel grateful for those we have the privilege to call friends and family and is without a doubt a great addition to Richard Lynch’s catalog that will further decorate his legacy.
