Songwriter to Songwriter – Rick Lang

Here is David Morris discussing songwriting with Rick Lang at World of Bluegrass last week in Nashville.

Though he had tracks placed previously, Rick came to the attention of the wider bluegrass world with his Look To The Light CD, released by Rural Rhythm in 2010. This project featured a full album of Lang’s material, recorded by a variety of top bluegrass artists, like Russell Moore, Dale Ann Bradley, Michael Cleveland, Ron Stewart, Junior Sisk and many others.

He and David spoke largely about the song with which Rick felt that he became a “real” songwriter.

    The guest needs his own mic so we can hear him as loudly and clearly as we can hear the interviewer.
    Too bad the interviewer was oblivious to this.

      We realized this after the interview. We’ll see what we can do about this for next time.
