Bio

Ricky Melton.....Singer/Songwriter. Emphasis on the songwriter part!!! He's been called the Bob Dylan of country music, on more than one occasion. Lacking confidence in some areas, but more than willing to brag about others, Ricky says.... "I can't sing as good as the RASCAL FLATTS, and I don't look as good as KENNY CHESNEY, but I feel I can write as good as anybody, and in most cases......better". Many critics agree. Born and raised in the rolling hills of eastern Ohio, where country music is all that can be heard, a young Ricky rebelled. "I remember being 4 years old and singing along to every PRINCE song from Purple Rain. I hated country music, I wanted to be a skinny black guy dressed in tight leather humping the stage.....I was such a ass". After short lived phases of Rock, Pop, and even Rap music, a mediocre student, and an even worse football player, teenage Ricky turned to his first TRUE LOVE, COUNTRY MUSIC!!! "It was my only hobby in high school....GARTH, GEORGE STRAIT, RANDY TRAVIS, and MARK CHESNUTT, they were the best." The love affair continued as Ricky ventured off after high school, joining the armed forces, eventually serving in Operation Enduring, and Operation Iraqi freedom. "I was stationed in Texas for about 3 months, and while there I had the opportunity to learn about a completely different type of music......TEXAS MUSIC!!!! No rules, No gimmicks, just good FU$%^&$ music. And boy can the music be heard on Ricky's upcoming
