For Immediate Release: Rockin’ Rich Lynch Aims to Become the “Next King of Rock and Roll” on the Strength of His Latest Nashville-Crafted Track 

(Nashville, TN) – The origin for Rockin’ Rich Lynch’s latest song – “Next King of Rock and Roll” – dates back to Earth Day, April 22, 2005 when Bruce Springsteen played a rare mid-day rehearsal show for his “Devils & Dust” concert tour at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, New Jersey.  

“That was a great day to be down at the shore,” Lynch recalled. “The event was pretty special and watching Bruce jump into his Range Rover post-show at 4:45 p.m. for a quick trip back to Rumson got me thinking – what a great life it would be to play music for fans and be home in time for dinner and a little rest and relaxation.” 

Lynch starting charting the original direction for “Next King” soon after but it would take divine intervention and a move to Nashville, Tennessee to result in a final track a decade and a half later.

“Living so close to the Elvis hotbeds of Tupelo and Memphis afforded me the opportunity to visit these revered sites. The birthplace came first via a journey down the Natchez Trace in 2018 followed by a 2019 pilgrimage to Graceland,” Lynch recalled. “So, going to both places helped me add some more authenticity to the story as it is rooted in my own personal history and the stuff of musical legend.”  

Lynch believes that much of his own output over the years has tended to be “way too serious” and he felt the time was right for him to release a light-hearted and fun track that might have a bit more widespread appeal. It also contains an uplifting tempo while delivering an aspirational and purposeful message.

“In 2021, I went to Summer NAMM in Nashville and took my seat on the Gibson Throne of guitars,” Lynch added. “Later in the day I actually met Elvis Presley’s guitar player James Burton. So, all of that added up to inspire me to revisit the song I began a long time ago.”

To help him with this crowning achievement Lynch returned to the expanding environs of Record One and the man at the helm Dallas Jack for direction with the royally good rock song that clocks in at just over 3 minutes and 40 second and sits poised to ascend the charts on international radio outlets around the world.

“Once again, Dallas exceeded expectations,” Lynch enthused. “We endeavored to create a song that gave a nod to the historic hits of the late 50’s while remaining fresh and modern. I believe we triumphed with this one.” 

Rockin’ Rich Lynch is sponsored by Hoxey Guitars ( – the Florida based manufactures who are now offering guitar necks and fully realized instruments composed primarily of polished aircraft aluminum. Their new “tele” model can be heard prominently in the track in the brightly composed rhythm section that repeats throughout the regal production.
