June 15, 2022 – Celebrated country-rock pioneer Richie Furay shares his new music video “Walking in Memphis” from his forthcoming album In The Country. Furay's unique rendition of the crossover hit (Marc Cohn) showcases his soulful and indelible vocals combined with dominant high-string and acoustic guitars and a glissando pedal steel, with rich horns, strings and background vocals. The video premiered yesterday on CMT.


On In The Country, Furay delivers compelling interpretations of iconic country songs and crossover hits. “This is what I’m about: rock & roll and country,” states the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, who was instrumental in creating the country-rock genre as a founding member of Buffalo Springfield and Poco. In The Countryis available as an exclusive Record Store Day vinyl release on June 18 and worldwide on July 8 via Renew/BMG Records.

Recorded in Nashville at Blackbird Studio and produced by GRAMMY® winner Val Garay, the twelve-song set features his distinctive versions of such chart-topping country classics, including the first single, “Somebody Like You” (Keith Urban), “The River” (Garth Brooks), and “I Hope You Dance” (Lee Ann Womack); plus, the crossover hits “Take Me Home, Country Roads” (John Denver), the Ricky Nelson smash “Lonesome Town” and the Julie Miller-penned Americana gem “Chalk.” There are two exclusive digital bonus tracks: Furay’s new rendition of Poco’s signature song “Pickin’ Up the Pieces” and George Strait’s hit “I Cross My Heart.”

Special guest appearances include John Berry, who duets with Furay on his hit “Your Love Amazes Me,” while country superstar Vince Gill joins Furay on “Lonesome Town.” In The Country also features Jason Scheff (Chicago) and Furay’s fellow Poco alum and Eagles bassist/vocalist Timothy B. Schmit.

Leading up to the release of the new album, Richie Furay kicks off a four-day run of events in Nashville this week.
