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 release, Daddys 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 bands distinctive musical style and intricate harmonies earned them the recognition as one of the most popular vocal groups in country music, a mantle they still wear today Now, 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 the 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. Ricochet is:
Heath Wright - Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar & Fiddle (and Dough Bro, that's the guy that hands out the money at the end of the night!)
Chris Hempfling - Drums & Vocals (and lead whistler)
Steve Hamby -Bass Guitar & Vocals (backup whistler)
Larry Hight -Steel Guitar, Electric and Acoustic Guitar, Saxophone & Vocals (and "old-man noises")
Matt Harelik -Keyboards, Trumpet & Vocals (auxiliary percussion and occasional Jews Harp)
Ricochets debut single, What Do I Know, was the highest charting debut single of 1996 rising to #3 in R&R and #5 in Billboard. The follow up release, Daddys Money, was #1 in R&R, Billboard, Gavin and Country Network.

Recognized as one of Country Musics hardest working groups, Ricochet has performed thousands of shows over the past 15+ years and they continue to perform to sold out venues all over North America.

Ricochet is the only the only country artist to ever chart our National Anthem and is in constant demand to perform it live. They have performed the anthem for our men and women in uniform, at NASCAR Sprint Cup Events, at Major League Baseball Events, at National Football League Events, at National Hockey League Events, at PBR and PRCA Professional Rodeo Events and others national events.

In addition to eight nationally broadcast, high rotation music videos, Ricochet has made repeated national network television appearances including The Tonight Show, Prime Time Country, The Grand Ole Opry, Crook & Chase, The CMA Awards, The ACM Awards, The CCMA Awards, Speedvision and many others.

Ricochet has headlined 2 USO Tours: Operation Seasons Greetings 2000 to Japan and Korea, and Operation Seasons Greetings 2001 which took the group to Spain, Sicily, Germany, Macedonia, Turkey, and Portugal to perform for the men and women of our Armed Services.

In 2009, 2010 and 2011, Ricochet performed in Washington DC at the annual ceremony to present the Grateful Nation Award, established in 2003, to six young heroes chosen from each of the five branches of the U.S. military and the U.S. Special Operations Command. The award, presented by JINSA, recognizes these young service men and women for having distinguished themselves through superior conduct in the War on Terrorism.
