When a band spends the bulk of its year on the road, its members are bound to have their share of trouble and strife. But only the truly talented are able to take those trying experiences and turn them into enduring art. The Randy Rogers Band is one of those few, and they’ve transformed coal into diamonds yet again on their latest album for MCA Nashville, Trouble. “We’ve grown as a band with this record. But I still don’t think we could make an album without the soul and passion that that embodies Texas music and it’s heritage,” said Rogers.
The first single “One More Sad Song” is a heart wrenching autobiographical tale of the end of a relationship. The sorrow in the lyric is tangible and echoed by a soaring, haunting chorus. “Fuzzy,” with its dirty, swampy groove, is the hazy recollection of a night that many have heard of and only a few have had. And “Speak of the Devil” is about one man’s efforts to forget his ex whose name and memory haunts the darkest corners of his mind. “I came in here to drink to drown you out and watch you sink…to do anything but think. Speak of the devil.”
Opening for the Randy Rogers Band is Brian Keane! Brian Keane is as honest as they come. So honest, in fact, that at the famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville he has been asked never to repeat his Americana Song of the Year “She Left Me for Jesus” (co-written with Hayes Carll). He debuted his criticism of Nashville songwriters (“I’ll Sing About Mine”) to a room full of Nashville songwriters. “That was a little nerve-racking,” he laughs. “But it went over well. I get the impression they’re as tired of writing some of that stuff as we are of hearing it.” With his new collection of no-bull, straight from the heart songs with subjects ranging from being broke (“Living is Killing Me”), to being broke and in love (“Everything is Broken but My Heart”) to his well-worn experience in dive bars (“Spinning Wheels”), Brian Keane is winning over audiences everywhere — despite being honest enough to ruffle some feathers. Combine that with a sharp wit on -stage, a lyrical gift beyond his years, a badass band, and the courage to say exactly how he feels to anyone, anywhere and you have Brian Keane: a true artist making some huge waves.
