Richard Lynch "Rodeo Town"

 Originally I hail from the South West, and later transplanted to the rural Pacific Northwest. So, there's a special place in my heart for small-town country songs that praise the culture around which I've grown up. "Rodeo Town" is a country love song replete with masculine swoonings around a beautiful dark-haired girl. I've gotta say, I love the saloon-style piano that kicks in around the 1:25 mark - but as a pianist myself, I'm a little biased. 

Lynch is an accomplished singer - frankly, I'm not sure why he isn't more famous than he is. To me, his skills as a vocalist could match Garth Brooks or George Strait. The song itself is fun, well played, and all-around enjoyable.
