From the crossroads of twang and tremolo, Rich Layton & Tough Town
play high-octane American music. It’s the sound of an East Texas roadhouse, 
harmonica-fueled and swampified!

The Ballad of Rich and Lu

What a long, strange trip it's been since Rich and Lucinda met in 1974! As their paths have crossed over the years, the conversation always picks up just where they left it. Here's a shot from Lu's in-store performance at Music Millennium, Portland's premier record storel.

So... Lyle Lovett was in town...

Rich steps up for a solo as Lyle Lovett looks on during the band's visit to Edgefield in July. "White Boy Trapped in the Blues." Included a great introduction and the story of Lyle buying one of Rich's old suits from a Houston vintage shop. That suit would be the one Lyle wore for the cover photo of his album "Pontiac."
