Randy Rogers band looks forward to "Homecoming"

Wednesday, July 27, 2022 – The Randy Rogers Band is looking back to the past for their next project, "Homecmoing," out Oct. via Thirty Tigers.

This is the band's ninth studio album and marks their 20-year anniversary.

The first single, "Picture Frames," came out in 2021. The song "Nothing But Love Songs" is available everywhere today.

"Nothing But Love Songs," details the unpleasant experience of being fresh off a breakup and hearing "nothing but love songs" each time you turn on the radio. The song was written by Rogers with Radney Foster and Jon Randal.

"This song embodies the sound that created the last two decades of touring for our band," Rogers said. "Recorded and written with Radney Foster, it's a return to the origins of the Randy Rogers Band."

Ten of the 11 songs were co-written by Rogers with assists from co-writers like Parker McCollum, Randy Montana, Jack Ingram and Randall. The project was produced by Foster, who has previously worked extensively with Randy Rogers Band. Foster produced several of the group's early albums including "Rollercoaster" and "Just a Matter of Time."

Randy Rogers Band recorded their new album at Dockside Studio in Maurice, La. and Cedar Creek Recording Studio in Austin, where they previously worked on several records

"Homecoming is a renaissance orchestrated by Radney Foster," Rogers said. "We went back to our roots working with Radney again as well as recording this record at two iconic studios that produced some of our most successful music. Dance with the one that brought you."

The track list is:
1. "I Won't Give Up" (Randy Rogers, Radney Foster, Jim Beavers)
2. "Nothing But Love Songs" (Randy Rogers, Jon Randall, Radney Foster)

11. "Bottle of Mine" (Randy Rogers, Radney Foster) Produced by Radney Foster

CD review - Hellbent Randy Rogers makes a big, bold statement with his title track, but it's the smaller insightful moment expressed through "Wine In A Coffee Cup" that stands out most. Rogers sings it empathetically over a swaying groove, one highlighted by equally empathetic fiddle. And it's an unusual drinking song. It's not about someone going out to a club and noisily ordering round after round to conspicuously drink away a heartache. Instead, it's a woman applying an ...
CD review - Nothing Shines Like Neon Randy Rogers Band's latest album cover provides insight into the music contained within. The brightly lit neon sign is a familiar sight to those who frequent honky tonks and smoky barrooms. The Texas country band plays music that is designed specifically for these locations and crowds within. Almost every song on this album has alcohol as one of the main characters. Fresh on the heels of Rogers' excellent twang filled collaboration with Wade Bowen, he returns with his full band with a ...
With "Trouble" the Randy Rogers Band seems to be attempting to straddle the line between hard-edged Texas alternative country and slick Nashville mainstream. Rogers is at his best when he sticks to alt.-country, as with the rocker Fuzzy in which he vaguely recalls the alcohol influenced events from the previous evening ("Who the hell is Heather/And when were we together/Cause I've got every letter of her name on my chest"). Similarly the bluesy Shotgun ...
