The Lynch-penned single is out on November 12th. The single artwork and video features photos of Richard’s family.
“I’ve got a few old friends in my life
My daughter and grandkids are in my life
And when it’s Christmas time,
They mean the most to me
Family and neighbors are in my life
And my forever best friend is my wife
And when it’s Christmas Time, she means the most to me”
–Richard Lynch “Christmas Time”
If it’s one thing that anyone knows for certain about Ohio-based country music artist Richard Lynch, is that family is at the forefront of his music and his life. The multiple iTunes chart-topping singer-songwriter has written and recorded songs about “Daddy’s Radio,” “Daddy’s Guitar,” and his most recent hit, “Grandpappy.” Now, Richard has released his third Christmas single, “Christmas Time.”
“Christmas Time” follows 2020’s light-hearted “I Saw Santa Bailin’ Hay” and 2019’s equally jovial “I Saw Santa Fishin’.” Both of those songs received radio airplay and streaming success around the world. “Christmas Time” is a more sentimental departure for Lynch. The cover art and video for the single features photos of Lynch’s family.
“Yes, I know I’m getting older
And sentimental as time goes by
But when the weather starts getting colder
And I can see those Christmas lights
Oh I’m a kid again and Grandpa threw a log on the fire”
