"Howdy! First of all I would like to thank everyone in my band for actually wanting to play with me. I can never thank you enough for all the joy that you bring into my life and I am forever grateful for the privilege of playing with each and every one of you. A very close second to that last statement, I would like to thank everyone who listens to and likes my music. My family & friends, my Fans, and my fellow musicians. I love Country music, always have loved Country Music, and always will love and love to play Country music. This is not a fad with me and I don't need to tell you who my influences are. Anybody who KNOWS Country music can hear them in each and every song I write. And yes, there are a couple of Rock influences in there too like Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, The Grateful Dead, Tom Petty, John Mellencamp, and some others. However, I've been told by a lot of people that it's pretty clear who I admire musically since imitation is the most sincere form of flattery. Thanks again for listening", Rikki Todd
