In 1996, the members of country super group Ricochet watched their debut single, “What Do I Know,” rise to the Top 5, earning the band the honor of the highest charting debut single of the year. The follow-up single, “Daddy’s Money,” became an immediate across-the-board hit, rising to #1 on the Radio & Records Country Singles Chart, the Gavin Country Singles Chart, and the Billboard Country Singles Chart (where it stayed #1 for two consecutive weeks). The band’s distinctive musical style and intricate harmonies earned them recognition as one of the most popular vocal groups in country music, a mantle they still wear today.

More than fifteen years later, “The Hardest Working Band In Country Music” is still going strong. The band continues to create great country music, sung with distinctive harmonies that are their hallmark. They log thousands of miles on the road each year, thrilling audiences of all ages across the United States and abroad.
