Yippee! I’m so excited, my life story book: BlindSighted  will be released in the middle of June. 


This blog is to pass on a special deal for the first 200 buyers. 


The book comes with a 6 song CD and for the first 200, I will autograph the book and there will be no shipping & handling. 


I’ve already received quite a few orders so, hurry up if you are interested in buying the book. 


The book & CD will sell for $20 plus S&H  


I will be headed out on the road to give talks and to perform as well.  Looks like a very good year. 


I will be blogging a lot to let everyone know where things are. 


Now to be 1 of the first 200 to order, send an email to: and when it’s happening, I will email you the directions for payment. 


I will be using 3 different ways to pay:  Check, paypal (just use my email address and by phone with my publisher with a credit card. 


So, just wait and I’ll let you know. 


It was a very hard book to write.  Lots of fond memories but, a ton of sad times from the day of my being shot in the eye with an arrow at 4.5 years old.  The book spans over 68 years of a very successful music and family career. 


I’ll be back soon.

Hi everyone,

I wanted to bring you up to date with what’s happening in my career. Things are really starting to click and I should be off and running very soon.

I just performed on WHAS TV here in Louisville for the Great Day Live and my speaking engagement agent is very excited about using it along with my appearance on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show. For the complete story you can visit WHAS website here.

He’s going to be booking me on a Keynote speaking tour and along with my talking, I will sing for everyone as well.

My book ‘BlindSighted’ should be out in the very near future and I’m really jazzed about it.

I’m back to producing again and hoping to get hooked up with some bands and or singers and producing a top professional product for them.

I’m still cooking with my vocal and songwriting lessons and things are starting to really pick up.

If any of you are wanting to become a much better singer and or songwriter then, I promise you that I can help.

If you’re looking to have a great CD (album) and you want it to compete with what’s out there then, by all means, spend the extra money to have it done by a professional like me. Over 60,000 hours of studio behind me and I know what’s the correct way to do it.

Thanks and all of you have a great year.

Turley Richards.

Wow! So much is coming soon, I’m totally excited.

I was on the phone again with my ghost writer and we’re getting closer to finishing my life story (BlindSighted) He’s interviewing people that knew me both as a sighted person and a blind person plus, all the ones that have known me since I went blind in 1969-1971. Lots of stories and lots of pain remembering so many things as a child when the accident happened.

I’m also, getting 3 CDs ready to put up for sale on my website: I’ll be giving away a song every couple of weeks and there will be some hidden bonus tracks that will bring a smile to a lot of my fans and friends.

I’ll be selling the book via electronic downloads using all the companies that sell books this way. I’m totally hoping for Amazon to work a deal with me. If we move a lot of product, I will then, approach the big publishing companies hoping for a deal.

If we get lucky and get it published, a dear friend of mine who is a big time screen play writer wants to write the screen play and we will try to sell it to the HBO, showtime type of networks. Keep fingers crossed for me.

I’m still being a vocal coach for a lot of local singers and always searching for the next star. I’ve got a few here in Louisville and will work hard to get them ready for a record deal.

Singing out a little to keep up my chops and would love to come to you for a concert in your town or city. I love to do Corpret parties and lectures on how to stay positive and to never give up. My book will have this theme throughout it.

My mom is the angel that made me so strong and when I join her in heaven someday, I want to make her so proud of me.

I’m still being a father always there for my 2 kids (Adam & amber) and now basking in the sunshine from the adorable voice of my 2 year old grand-daughter Zoey Grace. My my! What a bundle God sent to us. “I love you Zoey” Of course, I love Adam and amber and a wonderful son in law Brian.

Off too find the gorgeous new lady that I’m seeking and I just know she’s right around the corner. I sure hope she can drive. Hahahaha

Blessings to all.
