Welcome Adam Miller!

A message from Sammy…

Well, the past year has brought many changes in so many lives and affected the music industry in many ways. We thank the Lord above that we have weathered the storm and are back to touring in 2021 - but not without change.

Brandon Rickman, our lead singer, guitarist, front man, and songwriter, is leaving LRB after almost 18 years of highly professional service to the band since November 2001. I have enjoyed every minute of sharing the stage and recording with him. He has been instrumental in the song selection for those many years and we are sad to see an era come to an end. We wish him well in all future endeavors and time with his family. He will be missed.

Coming up in June, we will introduce Adam Miller from Erwin, TN to the band as our new singer and mandolin player. Adam is a student at East Tennessee State University and a member of their Bluegrass Pride Band, and is one of the brightest young talents I have heard in quite some time. His lead and harmony vocals are extraordinary for any age and I look forward to watching him develop in the years to come.

Jesse Smathers will now be on guitar for the band and singing great as he always does.

We are excited about a new era of Lonesome River Band and look forward to seeing all of our great friends and fans in the months to come.

God Bless You All!
