April 4, 2014

I grew up on Hwy 98 near Maysville. Love your song. I saw the recording on youtube, you should post the whole song there. I wanted to share on my FB page but was unable to. I love that Mr. Benton is naming the road for you. Good job!

I really enjoyed the recording of your Grandfather, Mr. Gillispie as he talked about Homer St. I remember him and it brings back great memories. "Thank You"

Good job on the interview with llona!! Love "Chevrolet" - sweet Ricky!!! Great song!

Jessie Buckley

June 27, 2010

I really like your song Chevrolet....Me and my husband Bobby are owners of a 1957 Chevrolet 2 door hard top. The color is Madador red, which was the assembly line red color in 1957. If you had a candy apple red in 1957 it was a custom paint job. I thought I would just throw that in so you would know. Great job!!!!!

Louis Kimery

June 21, 2010

Chevrolet is a reflective song we can all relate to. All gearheads rack up miles on the odometer of life just like that candy red 57. It belongs in every Chevy fans music collection!

Palmer Waters

Your music is soulful, and you can tell that it comes from the heart. I have enjoyed listening to it .

Keith Franks

April 27, 2010

your music tells me you are passionate about the Jesus we both serve. I love to see a fellow musician truly intimate with the Saviour of our souls. As a musician myself I know what it means to see that kind of committment to Jesus and the "call" that Jesus places on those who will surrender. Keep reaching! Keep writing! Keep playing!

Hi Ricky~

It was truly a blessing to see you and your family at TV57 last night. I was in the prayer room, so I wasn't able to hear your interview until this morning. As I listened to you talk, I sensed such a strong presence of God over your life and the very words you spoke was so sincere and genuine. You have a God given talent through song and I was truly blessed by your music. I especially loved the song about your mom. It reminded me of the day God called my mom home. Continued blessings to you and your family and the powerful ministry that God has imparted into you.


March 19, 2010

Amazing new song! Oh how I love the message here! What incredible talent you have. I just wish I knew someone to get you "IN" big - but really all that matters is that you're IN with Jesus! Thanks for touching so many with your gifts Ricky! You and Cretia are fabulous and life is so much richer because of both of your spirits!

Monty Nelson

Enjoyed your instrumental, but was looking to hear your voice too. Hope to see you again soon. Monty

CONGRATS!!!!! On the licensing deal!!! Now it's just a matter of a little more time and "dues" before you hit the big time!!! I'm really proud of you, Ricky!!!! You've worked so very hard on this dream and it's about to all come true for you!!!! Love you you and Cre!!! Sam & George Elston

Hey Ricky,

This is really really good, very relaxing. If I close my eyes and listen, with the imagination I have, I can picture a little desert town & the hero (the man in the white hat) walking thru into the sunset after making sure everyone was safe & of course he got the girl too. Guess it's the romantic in sounds GREAT!

Tammy Crooks

November 6, 2009

WOW - what a testimony! So glad to hear how God has used you to glorify Him with others! May God always protect you and guide your path and Bless you abundantly Ricky! You and Cretia are fantastic!

Gary Bond

August 21, 2009

Oh Ricky & Cre!!!! I hadn't heard of your son's birth since I left work. You don't keep in touch very well do you???!!! LOL. Seriously though, congrats on the birth of your son. Jude is now the glue to your entire family unit. It's wonderful and we are so happy for you all. Come see us at the new house sometime. I'll email you directions if you need them. The house is beautiful and George is responsible for all of it (I just calked and did the decorating). Keep in touch. Remember, I always said you would be big someday....taking a bit longer than you would like, I'm sure, but you are moving up and will arrive soon I believe.

Great website, very well done. Also, I listened to your music and cannot agree more with the comparison to James Taylor, the voice, the sound, etc.

I will keep an eye/EAR out for you and hope to see you live some day soon! Best of luck to you in your career! Keep up the hard work!

Marvin G.

May 28, 2009

Ricky, found you through a friend of a friend. Love your music and think you really have a gift. I love James Taylor, Bob Dylan and all the artists you mention as you influence but although you're similar, you do have your own sound. Keep it up and good luck to you in all you do. M.

I just listened to your video of Chevrolet. Please let me know when you get it recorded so I can get a copy for myself. It is wonderful. If this is how you write, then I'm a new fan. Jim

June 25, 2008

I hope you're including Should I Forget on your new CD. I love it! You really have a way of singing exactly what a woman wants to hear. Your wife is a lucky woman.


June 25, 2008

Hey! I saw you at Eddies Attic. You were wonderful. You have a beautiful voice!

Holly B

June 25, 2008

We can't wait to see you at Borders in Athens. Hope your finger is all better by then!


June 25, 2008

youre the best songwriter ive heard in a long long time. dont sell yourself short and do "radio" songs. youre way too talented to limit yourself to the industry.


June 25, 2008

I heard you sing at the ACC Library. Chevrolet was wonderful. Reminded me of my younger days and my dad's old fixer upper. A gold star for you!


June 9, 2008

I hated to hear about your accident! I hope everything heals fine and that you'll still be able to play at Borders in July!! We haven't seen you in so long and I'm looking forward to it!

Love ya!

Love your stuff. How do you mike your guitar? Going to see James Taylor tonight at the blossom for my birthday, It's been raining all day and it's an outside concert but we dug out the slickers and going anyway.

The Outlaw

June 3, 2008

Looks like you got a few of the Outlaws. Your missing some still. If you want to meet us, we will most likely be at Dos Copas Friday and Saturday night as Outlaw VI hubby is the Drummer for VWP. A totally awesome band!

Take care and let me know if you ever play at Little Italy. We saw you at the Autumn Leaf Festival. I am one of the riders for the Grove River Equestrian Team.


June 3, 2008

Here is a typical line for you... Your music just happens to be my style... and that just happens to be the truth.

It takes me back to sitting on the deck at the Crab Shack in Buckhead back in the early 90's, right beside the huge oak tree that's in the center of the deck, the year the Braves went from worst to first... you were probably in middle school then.

Hope you sold out at Eddie's Attic!


June 3, 2008

Hey Ricky ,
I love Green in LA (maybe one day I will tell ya why)
Acoustic is my fav you have a gift , I'm glad you are using it.Congrats...hope to chat with ya soon.


May 28, 2008

Sorry about the misspelling!! MAY GOD BLESS YOU & KEEP ON WITH YOUR MUSIC.Now that's better.

Pamela Sussewell

May 28, 2008

I think I used to babysit you and your brother. The names Mark, Philip & Jack comes to mind. It was around 1971-72.I graduated from Commerce High 1972. I let you all's bird out, and cooked a lot of deer meat,and fed you peanutbutter and celery for snacks. I'm 54 now but I really think that's you. Go bless you and kepp on with your music!!

I really enjoy the music.
Thank you form Spain/Germany.


May 15, 2008

Green in LA - I am calling this country because this is a very strong country song. There is so much passion in the voice and you tell it so well. One of the best country submissions I´ve heard.

Marcus @ Fame Games

May 15, 2008

Dude, I am digging your stuff. You got a fan here in NC man. They said Room For Squares (Mayer) was the soundtrack for teenage life...this is just as good. I would say your tunes are a new collection of life-theme songs for the sensitive, the romantics and the starry-eyed dreamers. In my view Ricky Fitzpatrick takes his rightful place on a new highest rung in the singer/songwriter genre. Come on up here and play sometime. MS

Hi Ricky - I played "The Ballad of Billy the Kid" on my article about the Kid for a long time ( but the song quit working recently and the file you have available on your web site will not work on the web page, either. Do you have nother version of it (in a different format)? By the way, thanks for the X-Mas greetings! Debby :)


November 21, 2007

You got a voice for sure. And I like the take on your story (Balld of BTK) a lot. Very edgy, I like it. You know the verses are so good, totally compelling. But bottom line is you got serious talent son.


November 16, 2007

i really enjoy your music!! i will come see you as soon as i can!!!ttyl keep on playing!!"


November 16, 2007

Good exposure Ricky, way to go! Keep making music and following your dreams. Take care!

Hey Ricky,
Who knew that Jefferson would become this little hotbed of talent? I listened to some of your songs and they sound great. You have a wonderful sweet tone and musical style. I am glad to hear that good things are happening for you. Who knows maybe Jefferson will become the new Athens????? We fellow townsfolk need to support one another, so of course I would be happy to get to come and see you.

October 3, 2007

That’s just too awesome! I can’t believe how big Corey Smith has become. I always knew he had talent but OMG! It’s exciting to watch your success. Just think, all those people who said you couldn’t do it…didn’t have a clue. :)

Good going Ricky!

I would like to commend you for the work you're doing with hospitals. It's a blessing to know that there are still musicians out there who care about people as something other than just a dollar to be made.


September 13, 2007

Blessings on the work you are doing! I know it is
meaningful to the patients and their families, and not many people are doing it. Julie


September 11, 2007

Your music is great and you are doing good work for the benefit of other people and that rates you high in my estimatation. As a whole, the world teaches that getting gives you happiness, well it doesn't seem to be working. Giving works much better! So here's a big hug from an Irish woman!

I am happy that your show over the past weekend was a success. I wish I lived closer & could have been there to support you. I have visited your website and have enjoyed it so much. Best of luck to you…

Thanks for sharing your dream…


September 5, 2007

Finally got around to visit, Ricky. I'm on dial up usually and it makes thigs difficult for me. Broadband is all around me but I still cant get it!
Any way your music is great and you are doing good work for the benefit of other people and that rates you high in my estimatation.

August 30, 2007

Wow - finally, a message worth reading!! Ricky, thanks for your invite to the group. It looks very cool. I'm in full agreement with you - my primary goal through my music is healing - physical, spiritual, emotional. You know. One of the most powerful 'shows' I've ever done was in the silent hall of a hospice in Austin, TX. Absolutely sacred.

Let me know how I can be more involved! Thanks -
Michael Tiernan

What a wonderful gesture - keep up the good work!
If you're going to be playint at the children's hospital, don't forget to do the Unicorn Song. It's from a Shel Silverstein poem, and if you don't know it, learn it! Kids just love to hear it, and they can participate in the motions, if they are able.
