Nashville-based Rich Herring joined the band as lead guitarist when Stephen Housden took a well-deserved break from touring. With him came extensive studio experience…as a player, as an engineer, and as a producer for major record labels like Sony and Curb.
He was recently named Producer of the Year at Indie Music Channel and inducted to the Indie Music Hall of Fame along with his production partner, Barry Best. He also co-produced every LRB project with Wayne since 2008.
Rich has written songs for artists such as Hannah Dasher, Joe Nichols, Darcy, Ryan Daniel and of course, LRB. He produces and co-writes with top 10 bluegrass artist Mark Houser, and was awarded Song of the Year at the British CMA in 2017.
