Authenticity isn’t something that can be manufactured in a studio. It’s not a craft that can be learned or artfully practiced. It comes from living life. It’s the by-product of blood, sweat and tears and as the foundation for music, it elevates mere entertainment to compelling art.
“You’ve just got to be true to yourself and you can’t fool anybody,” Randy Rogers says of the band’s philosophy. “As a whole, our body of work is pretty consistent with our live show, and the band that plays on the record is the band that you go see."
The Texas-based band has kept its lineup intact since 2002, and the group has reached the Top 5 of Billboard’s country albums chart with each of its last three studio releases, including 2016’s “Nothing Shines Like Neon.” The group recently completed a new album, set for mid-2018 release, at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A with GRAMMY-winning producer Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson).
Over the course of a dozen releases and multiple major award nominations, Rogers and his band have gone from rowdy college-town bar group to one of the most successful, longest-running acts in the always burgeoning Texas music scene. A group that’s regularly on the road 200 dates a year is booked deep into 2018 to play fan favorites like “Tequila Eyes,” “Tonight’s Not the Night,” “Kiss Me in the Dark” and “In My Arms Instead” all across the country.
