Richard Crowell was born in 1971 in Fayetteville, Arkansas to Herald and Marie Crowell. He is the youngest of four boys. Rich has developed a huge love of music that began in his family since all four boys play instruments and sing. He began playing guitar at the age of 13 and while in college at the University of Arkansas, he played in a band that took first in a college talent competition.
In 1995, Rich began his career in the restaurant business at Golden Corral in Branson, Missouri. Working in this business in "The Country Music Capital" has led to the opportunity to cater to stars such as Tony Orlando, Mel Tillis, Wayne Newton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Moody Blues, Merle Haggard, Charlie Pride, Lee Ann Rhimes, Neal McCoy, Al Roker, Mike Huckabee, Montel Williams, George Jones and Don Williams among others.
Rich worked his way up to becoming the General Manager of Branson's Golden Corral. He has appeared as a regular on TV shows with Gene Williams (he had the longest running country music television show) and Mickey Gilley (Legendary musician and "The Urban Cowboy") and today has national recording artist, Barbara Fairchild (The Teddy Beary Song) performing in the Golden Corral showroom.
Rich currently resides in Branson with his wife, Dana. They stay involved in community events and serve everywhere they can. His love for music and food makes his job as the General Manager of the world's largest Golden Corral the best of both worlds as he, "caters to the stars."
