Founded in 2000, The Randy Rogers Band knows a thing or two about concerts and live recordings. The band recorded its first live project, Live at Cheatham Street Warehouse, in 2000 and after a couple studio albums that followed, RRB made another concert album, Live at Billy Bob’s, in 2005. The band signed with Universal shortly after, opening up a seven-year run that netted four Top 10 titles on the Billboard Country Albums chart. The band then recorded a generous two-disc album, Homemade Tamales: Live at Floore’s, culled from shows in October 2013.
“Doing a live album kind of puts a stamp on it,” Rogers said. “If you think about when you were young and 16, when the world was your canvas, songs take you to particular spots and memories. That's how the albums are for me when I look back at when we were broke, or we were struggling so much at that time, or if we were riding high on the road with Miranda Lambert or Dierks Bentley. Those albums are just like snapshots to me.”
Recently, the band just finished recording a new studio album titled Nothing Shines Like Neon with award-winning producer Buddy Cannon, to be released in 2016. The band continues to receive well-deserved praise from Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, People, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Billboard, Pollstar, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Times, Washington Post, Cowboys & Indians, and Country Weekly.
“Hopefully, I write songs that people live,” Rogers said. “I think that's why we all do this as writers, reporters included. You want people to relate to you and hope that maybe you’ve been through something similar that could possibly help them.”
