Nashville Rocker Rich Lynch Honors Patriot's Day With Latest Thought-Provoking Song

New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Nashville rocker Rich Lynch returns with a second new track in 2016 as his latest digital single "Patriots' Day" celebrates and popularizes one of America's lesser-known holidays.

"Several years back I was on the phone with my mom who lived in Cape Cod at the time," says the musician about the day he got the spark of an idea for this song. "On this day in Boston they run the Marathon in the city and the Red Sox usually have an early home game as well to commemorate Patriots' Day."

It turns out there's much more to this April rite of passage than the undertaking of sporting events.

"It's marks the 'Shot Heard Around the World' and the start of the Revolutionary War and the midnight ride of Paul Revere," Lynch added. "It's really about the birth of our nation even more so than the Fourth of July. This was the actual day the revolutionaries had to put up or shut up to defend what they believed in."

The four-minute and ten second track explodes through the speakers with a gunshot to indicate the start of a race and then accelerates on Lynch's now patented brand of peppy and punky crunch rock that contains a musical message of being ever vigilant where liberty is concerned.

"What I really didn't know at the start of this process is that the actual date on the calendar of April 19 has been a rather strange and unique one in the history of world events," Lynch revealed about the day that inspired his latest song. "Especially as far as it relates to fighting tyrants and government oppression and it just keeps happening. I'll let the lyrics speak for themselves, fans can Google the day and be amazed at what they'll find. But, that's why I sing 'the past is prologue on Patriots Day' - strange events keep popping up surrounding this day over time."

This is the third of a trio of tracks that Lynch co-produced in his former hometown of Ringwood, New Jersey and was recorded just prior to his departure for Nashville. He enlisted the help of rock legend Steve Brown of Trixter and Def Leppard fame to create a powerful song with just the right mix of power and pop.

"Steve did another amazing job with this one," Lynch remarked about the controversial tune the pair worked on in New Jersey. "When I get back east we plan on producing some more music together. Until then, I start recording my first new songs in Nashville in later this year."

Patriots' Day remains one of the lesser-known yet most patriotic holidays in the nation's history. However, the concept behind it will definitely get a big Hollywood boost in 2017 when Mark Wahlberg's Patriot's Day movie is released on January 13. The film directed by Peter will focus on the police investigation into the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013 and there are already whispers of Oscar nominations galore for the big-screen bio-pic.
