Album Review

This is the self-titled debut for Ricochet. It was released under the Sony/Columbia label in 1996. The album went on to be certified gold. Songs like "Daddy's Money," "What Do I Know," and "Love Is Stronger Than Pride" are all listed in the tracks, and all landed in Top Ten spots on the Billboard music chart. The same year the debut was released, Ricochet's music earned it awards such as top new vocal group from the Academy of Country Music, top new country artist from Billboard magazine, group of the year from the Radio & Records reader's poll, and favorite new group or duo by the Country Weekly Golden Pick awards. Ricochet — the group and the album — offers contemporary country fans some great harmonies that are showcased on ballads like "What Do I Know." There are also some great up-tempo numbers with plenty of guitar action. Overall, the debut is a pretty impressive contribution. Members of the country group are fiddler and guitarist Junior Bryant, bass guitarist Greg Cook, steel guitarist Shannon Farmer, drummer and harmonica player Keith Mellington, keyboardist Steve Paxton, and lead guitarist Heath Wright. All members serve vocal duties, but Wright is the lead singer. Some of the members also handle songwriting. The country band tours a lot, even doing USO shows for the armed services.
