The Randy Rogers Band is a country band that hales from the great state of Texas. Yes, I realize that this Texas kick I’m on is stretching in to its second week and, well, I don’t care. Their debut album was a live album recorded at a bar in San Marcos, Texas in 2000. By 2002 they had signed with an independent label and released their first studio album Like It Used To Be.

They have come a long way since the bar scene of San Marcos. They have opened for artists such as the Eagles, Willie Nelson, Gary Allan, and Dierks Bentley. Their music fits the college scene with its good time party vibe but also digs a little deeper with each new release. It is an interesting fusion of country and a rugged swagger that comes across as the musical love child of Waylon Jennings and Steve Earle.
