The new country and western ballad is called ‘A Man’s Best Friend Is Time’ and is now available on all streaming platforms, including Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music. The composition channels the mixed musical heritage of singer-songwriter Rick Orozco and of legendary accordionist Flaco Jimenez.

The new single was co-written by Rick and Flaco shortly after Rick’s dearly beloved father passed away. As such, the cathartic song touches on enduring themes like family, love and loss, and the songwriting duo hope that they will move listeners with their intimate, honest and heart-wrenching story of grief.
To accompany this heartfelt lyrical journey, the two performers have crafted a slow and moody ballad which features Orozco’s quintessential evocative guitarwork and Flaco’s iconic accordion.
In addition to its availability on streaming platforms, interested listeners can also find the song on numerous local country and western and Tejano radio stations throughout Texas.
