Originally from Portsmouth, Ohio, Rick Ferrell is one of Nashville's most gifted and eclectic artists. His sound is timeless, with elements of country, rock, and persistent honesty that defies any description except pure American music. When asked where his inspiration comes from, Ferrell is quick to say, most of his musical influences have been singer/songwriters. He feels his identity as a singer is best defined through his music and the lyrics that ties it all together.
As a songwriter, Ferrell's songs have been recorded by many popular artists and country legends such as Earl Thomas Conley, Montgomery Gentry, Martina McBride, and The Swon Brothers, only to name a few. At the end of 2009, Ferrell would pen the most played radio song of the decade in any 'genre" with "Something Like That" aka the BBQ stain song recorded by Tim McGraw.
