Randy Rogers Band to headline DC Fair
The Randy Rogers Band that will be highlight the 2011 Dawson County Fair with a performance Saturday, July 23.
The Randy Rogers Band’s more recent album is Burning the Day, its third release on UMG Nashville/MCA. It features a collection of 11 rock-country fire-branded songs.
The Texas-born-and-bred crew, who earned their road-warrior reputation in bars and dives across the American West, still spends more than 200 days on the road a year. But they aren’t just hitting red dirt dens anymore, they’re opening for the likes of Willie Nelson and The Eagles, and landing spots on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Late Show With David Letterman.
Their two previous albums debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Country Chart and in the Top 5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. They earned two ACM Vocal Group of the Year nominations and were named Country Album of The Year in Playboy magazine for their last studio effort.
All of these signs point to success, but on the road map of the band’s career, their route has yet to take them to a major win on country radio.
Randy Rogers Band lays it all out on the line with this album.
“This is an important album,” Randy Rogers reiterates. “I wrote more songs for this album than on any previous record. The rest of the band was writing a song a week as well; we really made an effort to bring as much to the table as we could before going into the studio.”
On top of songwriting, they continued their relentless touring schedule, while several of the band members, including Randy himself, started families.
Reggie Shaw will be the opening act. Gate opens at 6 p.m. with the show beginning at 7. Ticket will go on sale June 13.
