Rickey Gene Wright has become a prolific songwriter, influenced by the outlaw country of his youth and the mystique of being a lifelong Texan. His latest release finds him further flexing his creative lyric chops, and establishing himself as a well rounded Americana act.
The new Texas Is Our Home album reunites Wright with music producer Brad Davis, and the sounds straddle the line between country, folk and Americana. Songwriting is the emphasis of the record, highlighting the Garland songwriter's knack for words that are raw and relatable. Rickey Gene visited KETR along with Brad Davis to discuss the new record, house concerts, Texas music appeal overseas, and much more.
