Richard has given us great music throughout the years with songs like "Empty Glass, Who Stole My Monkey, Louisiana Lullaby, Midland Two Step, Heaven was a Drink of Wine and On a night like This' just to name a few.

In 1997, Richard released his album "Again for the first Time" on the La Louisianne record label which spawned the mega hit "Empty Glass".  The song is a remake of an old country classic first recorded by Gary Stewart.  Richard took this classic and made it his own and the song has taken a life of it's own here in the Louisiana area become one of the most popular songs in Cajun Music history!
