In 2019, Rick Springfield released his seventeenth studio album, Orchestrating My Life.
This album is a collection of all the songs the public loves, re-recorded in a stunning rock mix and accompanied by a full orchestra. Also included is a new song, “Irreplaceable,” dedicated to Rick’s mother, who passed away in 2017.
The 73-year-old Grammy Award winner recently re-recorded his album Working Class Dog live for the 40th Anniversary Edition. He’ll be hosting a hit-filled show, including “Jessie’s Girl,” at Nashville’s Brown He County Music Center on January 27 at 8 p.m.
Springfield has previously performed with orchestras around the United States and around the world in support of “Orchestrating My Life”.
Concert reviews of his standard pop-rock shows credit him for high-energy performances that would make even a much younger Springfield proud.
Last year, Springfield said in an interview that most of his recent concerts were “wall-to-wall hits.”
“We play crowd pleasers,” he told AM FM magazine.
As a successful author, he has written three books.
As a successful actor, he has appeared in films such as ‘General Hospital’, ‘Californication’, ‘Ricky and the Flash’, ‘True Detective’, ‘Supernatural’ and ‘American Horror Story’.
Aside from his musical successes, Springfield has long spoken out about his decades-long battle with depression and suicide attempts in his youth. He calls his battle a “lifelong condition.”
In his 2010 autobiography Late, Late at Night, he details his dark experience.
Springfield has been married to his wife, Barbara Porter, since 1984. He has two children, Liam and Joshua.
