TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:



RE: Ricky Russ – Music Evangelist



Ricky Russ has been a close friend and associate of the Country Gospel Connection for several years, and we have found him to be excellent at everything he puts his hands to. He delivers the Gospel of Jesus Christ, cloaked in country music, in a style that breaks down walls and touches the soul of man, and rivals any country song produced in Nashville’s finest studios.



God has taken Ricky’s extraordinary musical talent, allowed it to become finely honed and sharpened in the world as an outstanding country entertainer in mainstream country music venues, and has produced a personality that can “woo” a sinner’s heart and have it touched by the spirit of God before that sinner can raise up any barriers.



While he was traveling with our Branson Country Gospel Revue and Road Show, we saw Ricky walk the bleachers in a high school auditorium delivering a Christian Country song that was received like he was handing out free passes to a world series game; and we have seen him capture an audience at a Country Gospel music fest with hundreds of people in attendance. This is one minister of the Gospel that you’ll absolutely want for your concerts, rodeos, reunions, youth events and church services.



For references please feel free to call us at 870-741-1407 at any time.

"Memorail Day"

In the last two hundred years hundreds of thousands of men and women have lost their lives to give us freedom. In a ceremony held at Elliott Hamil Garden of Memories, more than one hundred residents came out to pay tribute on Memorial Day 2007. KTAB's Bob Bartlett was the Master of Ceremonies, as songs were sang by soloist Sharla Milliron and Ricky Russ. The Marine Honor Guard continued the ceremony with a 21 gun salute, followed by Retired Lt. B.A. Waltrip playing Taps. Three families in the Abilene area were honored with special awards as their loved ones passed away in war this year. - Abilene Reporter News...

Bio

After winning numerous singing competitions in secular country music, and having high hopes for a country music following, Ricky realized things were not going so well.
After parting ways with band members who were seeking worldly approval, Ricky turned to GOD, asking what he should do with his life. Two weeks later that prayer was met.
Ricky met a gentleman by the name of Leon Joplin at a filling station in the small town of Buffalo Gap, Texas. Ricky commented on his travel trailer and truck, at which time Leon shared his story and love of Christian Country Music......"He has no idea how he changed my life after handing me two of his CD's. I liked them so much I recorded his song "Simply Ask".....
Ricky has completed his first 10 song CD, and has finished his 2nd in 2008....

Ricky has sang in venues at California, Boise Idaho, Michigan, Las Vegas,Kentucky, and South Texas just to name a few. He had over 180 days last year (2006),with 2007 just as busy.....
