Richard Lynch’s “Grandpa & Grandma” Engages Listeners With Tales of Appalachian Upbringing

“Grandpa and Grandma” is a heartfelt testament to family, heritage and the simple, yet profound, values of hard work, faith and kinship. Inspired by the Eastern Kentucky roots of Richard Lynch and his keyboard player Tony Williams, the track is a splendid example of the emotive power of country music.

The song’s narrative takes shape against the backdrop of tales of large, tightly-knit families. Lynch’s father was one of nine siblings and Williams’ father was one of eleven. These stories, imbued with love, loyalty and resilience, enrich the song and make it an engaging listen.

Adding a layer of emotional depth to “Grandpa and Grandma” is its status as the favorite song of late guitarist, Tim Bennington. For fans of Lynch’s music and members of the band, the song is a poignant reminder of their beloved colleague and his contribution to their journey.

Lynch’s “Grandpa and Grandma” is set to be promoted to Christian radio – a fitting platform for a song that highlights the enduring spirit of hope. Following the success of his #1 Christian Voice Magazine single, “High Above the Midnight Sky”, there is much anticipation for this latest release.
