Les Richardson was born and raised on a ranch in White Salmon, Washington. A small community about 1 hour east of Portland, Oregon. At the young age of 12 Les decided to give up his dirt bike and follow his true calling of music. His first Fender Telecaster guitar was given to him by his late grandfather, Calvin Richardson. After playing gigs like singing the national anthem for the Portland Trailblazers, singing in bars, rodeos and fairs all around the pacific northwest, even bought his own tour bus, it was time to take his talent along with his million dollar voice to the next level and move to Nashville.
Since moving to Nashville he has appeared on such shows as Star Search and Nashville Star, and has performed at the Ryman Auditorium and on the Grand Ol’ Opry stage numerous times.
Les has also shared the stage with such performers as Big and Rich, Dierks Bentley, 3 Doors Down, John Rich, Montgomery Gentry, the late Chris Ledoux, Jason Aldean, Steve Holy, Ty Herndon, Clay Walker, and Brian McComas.
When Les is in town he is working on writing the next hit song and playing with his band at the Jack Daniel’s Saloon in the Opryland Hotel or the world famous Wildhorse Saloon.
