Westwood Recording Artist: Joe Rickman was born in Corinth, Mississippi to Robert Pascal and Opal Rickman in 1943. Joe has been singing since 1962.
Joe really gets with it in his singing. It looks like he's putting every ounce of his
strength into every song. He actually beats the guitar strings, We don't see how he gets through
even one song without breaking a string or two!
He and his band play and sing once a month in Boonville, Mississippi at an all Gospel TV Station.
Having played the guitar and bass for several years before he started to sing, Joe now has his own six-piece band which includes his son on drums. The name of the group is the "Main St. Band." They have performed for several years at the West Tennessee Opera in Dyersburg, TN.
Joe, who plays most stringed instruments and does Marty Robbins material.
Rickman plans to stay active on a local level. He would love to be able to make a decent living with his music and still stay close to home. He does not want the headaches of fighting a cruel world in the almost impossible task that being in the music business entails.
