Ricochet is an American country music band from Oklahoma. The band was founded in 1993 by brothers Jeff Bryant (drums, vocals) and Junior Bryant (fiddle, mandolin, vocals), along with Heath Wright (lead vocals, lead guitar, fiddle), Greg Cook (bass guitar, vocals), Teddy Carr (steel guitar, Dobro) and Eddie Kilgallon (keyboards, rhythm guitar, saxophone, vocals), After several years of playing throughout the Southern United States, Ricochet was signed to a recording contract with Columbia Records in 1995. Their self-titled debut album produced three straight Top Ten hits on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts, including the Number One single "Daddy's Money"; the album was also certified gold in the United States.

Ricochet signed to Sony and charted three Top 10 singles in 1996, including the No. 1 hit "Daddy's Money." Their self-titled debut album was certified gold, and they earned a CMA nomination for group of the year in 1997. However, their momentum faded on their second album, and the band left Sony a few years later.

Only Wright and Cook, who is also from Vian, Okla., remain from the original lineup. Current members now include Shannon Farmer, Marty Mitchell and Dwayne Dupuy. They released a live album in 2004.

In September 2008, the band released a compilation album entitled Ricochet Reloaded--Hits/Plus, which includes a combination of their greatest hits and newly recorded material.
