If you're looking for originality then you're on the right page. Rick Arnold is no 'Average Country Joe' because with his great guitar grooves along with cool harmonica sounds you can always count on Rick's lyrics and music to be one beat away from today's major label product. Rick is definitely 100% original!!! As all his previous albums, 'A Little Sunshine' brings a new twist to Rick's writing and musical ability. Rick's fans aka 'Hog Heads' have described this new CD from 'country pop' to 'easy listening with an edge' to 'somewhat tropical'. The title cut 'A Little Sunshine' puts the sand in your shoes and wind in your hair about a girl who always makes life a little brighter. The crowd pleaser 'Bonnie and Clyde', a story about an inseparable love between two people, was the foundation of this new CD. This CD continues to show Rick's uniqueness of guitar licks with 'Beautiful Woman' a seductive song of instant desire between two people.
