Cody Johnson w/ Randall King playing the Ryman!

Cody Johnson will be headed to Nashville, TN in May 2019 for a very special show. He will be playing the Ryman Auditorium. Often referred to as the “Mother Church” of Country music, The Ryman is the original home of the Grand Ol Opry!

 

Joining Cody on this show will be Hereford, TX. native Randall King! Randall has had some pretty high praise coming out of his latest self titled album, including from Garth Brooks.

Thanks Beltre!!!

The Texas Rangers have announced that after 21 years in the Majors (8 seasons with your Texas Rangers), future Hall of Famer Adrian Beltre is retiring. Beltre retires as the only 3rd baseman in Major League history to rack up 3,000 career hits AND 400 homers. We wish #29 the best.

5 Q’s with Randy Rogers

Our friends the Randy Rogers Band open up the 2016 Lone Star Park Music Series Friday, April 8 in Grand Prairie. Randy was recently on The Front Porch Show:

5 Questions with Randy Rogers

  1. “You and the guys have been doing this now for over 15 years. To what would you attribute the success of The Randy Rogers Band?”
  2. On your duet with Willie “Trouble Knows My Name” some pretty crazy things take place on tour in towns like Kansas City, New Orleans and Missoula, Montana of all places. .Are these real accounts?
  3. The new album “Nothing Shines Like Neon” was recorded during a tough time for you personally, and I understand is actually dedicated to a close friend of yours who you lost before the recording began?
  4. As we mentioned, you have been doing this now for a long, long time. When you look at the crop of new Texas artists out there now, who stands out to you?
  5. In the new album you were blessed to record 3 duets with the likes of Jamey Johnson, Allison Kraus and the great Jerry Jeff Walker. What was it like recording the cover of “Taking It As It Comes” with Jerry Jeff in the studio?
