There is no one better suited to sing "Freedom Family and Faith" than Ricky Lee Jackson.

Ricky is a Nashville country music recording artist, having achieved success and chart position with his album "The Other Side" in the 1990's.

As a political candidate and grassroots activist for conservative principles, he twice ran for Congress in his home state of Washington on a platform of economic growth, individual freedom and responsibility, and limited government.

Known affectionately in his community as the “singing doctor,” Ricky Lee has been a small business owner and family practice physician for over 25 years. This gives him keen insight into the dangers of socialized medicine and a deep passion for keeping America free and prosperous by proudly standing up for capitalism and individual liberty.

Ricky Lee is also a family man, married over 30 years to his wife, Jeanine, and raising three children, with a growing list of grandchildren. When Ricky Lee Jackson sings about "Freedom Family and Faith" he knows what he's talking about, and he believes most Americans share his belief that what makes America great isn’t our government – it’s our freedom, our families, and our faith.

Ricky Lee wrote and recorded this single as: "A song dedicated to the courage, wisdom, and foresight of the Founders of our nation, to those who have given their lives in the defense of liberty, and to all who are sacrificing to promote our unique American heritage of freedom, family, and faith."

Upon its release, “Freedom Family and Faith” garnered immediate attention. When the producers of the #1 Morning Cable News Program “Fox and Friends” heard the song, the immediately flew Ricky Lee out to their New York Studios and asked to interview him on the raging Health Care debate and also had him perform the song live in the studio for the millions of listeners at home. After the appearance, FFF went to #1 on the CDBaby Country Charts, the largest independent music distributor in the world.

Ricky Lee was called on air, “He’s the new Joe the Plumber, now there’s Rick the Doctor!” during a nationally broadcasted interview and performance on ‘Fox & Friends’.

His newest release, a rock single written for the Tea Party Movement, “We’re Gonna Have A Par-Tea!”, has already garnered national attention through radio interviews, including the nationally syndicated ‘Jesse Lee Peterson Show’––who is also a frequent guest commentator on ‘Hannity’.

A musical milestone also recently occurred for Ricky Lee. The backstory includes him traveling to Nashville in 1990 to record his album "The Other Side”. At that time Ricky was given a wonderful tour of the Ryman Auditorium, the original home of the Grand Ole’ Opry, that included a complete backstage tour. The tour included meeting and watching on stage performances by some of the most famous Grand Ole’ Opry legends, including Minnie Pearl and Little Jimmy Dickens.

Fast forward "a lifetime", and an invitation came in for Ricky Lee to actually PERFORM on the Grand Ole’ Opry stage! His son Jonathan has been a regular on the primetime TV show "Nashville", and has become a frequent performer at the Grand Ole’ Opry shows. When Jonathan proposed having Ricky join him on stage the "Opry" said YES, and plans were quickly and quietly set.

They chose a compilation based on the Elvis version of the hymn "Stand By Me" ending with a rousing version of "Glory Glory Hallelujah", the chorus from "Battle Hymn of the Republic".

The whole experience was incredible. What an honor! 

Ricky Lee continues to receive invitations to sing at constitutionally conservative events around the country, including a recent performance at the WA GOP State Convention with Mitt Romney and Michelle Malkin as the key note speakers. Ricky has partnered with such organizations as Americans For Prosperity, The Evergreen Freedom Foundation, and has been a featured guest on the American Freedom Report and Fox News, among many others. Ricky Lee is also a frequent columnist for the online conservative news and media outlet “Web Today”. When the news media want a Doctor’s Take on Health Care or the Tea Party movement, many hosts want to interview Ricky Lee Jackson for his common sense, unique perspective––as a physician by day and a political grass-roots activist performer by night who understands and articulates the issues with clarity, passion, and conviction.

When he is not “singing to rally the nation” (‘Fox and Friends’) Ricky resides in Vancouver, WA with his wife Jeanine. Ricky loves spending his free time with his three grown children and several grandchildren.
