When the Randy Rogers Band's last project debuted as the most-downloaded country album on iTunes, plenty of the industry «insiders» on Music Row were left scratching their heads: Who are these guys?The Nashville elite may not have known about the five-piece band, but much of America already did. Rolling Stone magazine ranked them alongside such artists as U2 and the Stones in its list of Top 10 Must-See Artists in the summer of 2007. They earned $2.5 million-a staggering total for a still-developing act-on the tour circuit in a single year. Willie Nelson, the Eagles, Gary Allan and Dierks Bentley all picked them as opening acts for their concerts. And more than 2,200 people showed up and bought the bands album at an appearance at Wherehouse Music.The fans' exuberance was shared by USA Today, which praised the band for having «loads of grit, swagger and heart.»The Randy Rogers Band built its audience by combining forces: It's a dynamic live act centered around songs that fit the rowdy, party vibe of the concert circuit, but their songs also say something.That's particularly true in the new album, The Randy Rogers Band, in which a dozen persuasive tracks give the listener plenty of reasons to want to down a celebratory brewski. But the songs also maintain a depth that makes them powerful and provocative even beyond their edgy arrangements and tough-guy sound.Indeed, the Randy Rogers Band is confronting the same questions about relationships and identity that face many of the college students and young adults that form the centerpiece of the group's audience. The balancing act between work, home and recreation is a difficult one-even tougher for an ensemble that spends more than 200 days annually on the road.That requires a constant rededication to the group, a commitment the five members have repeatedly made since the current lineup coalesced in 2003.

Guests 21 and over can join us in the Kerns Music Lounge (adjacent to our main lobby) 2 hours prior to scheduled door time for food, drinks and priority entry into the showroom.
