RTX New Music Challenge: Jason Boland vs. Randy Rogers Band
This week’s Challenge will be a tough one, as one of Texas’ and one of Oklahoma’s finest square off. It’s Jason Boland’s newest single “Electric Bill,” going up against Randy Rogers Band’s “Speak of the Devil.” Your vote determines who we add, check ‘em both out.
Jason Boland was one of the guys that introduced me to the Texas, Red Dirt scene. He along with stalwarts named Pat, Charlie, Ragweed, Cory and Robert Earl really made it easy for me, a transplanted Texan, to fall in love with this music. Boland music IS Red Dirt music, and his new album Dark & Dirty Mile is one of his finest. It’s second single is our first challenger this week, “Electric Bill.”
Randy Rogers Band is one of the most popular and successful bands to come out of Texas. Twice they’ve been nominated for CMA Vocal Group of the Year, and despite falling short of wins both times, fans are absolutely ravenous when it comes to these guys. Their latest album “Trouble” has already produced two No. 1 singles in Texas — will “Speak of the Devil” be it’s third? It starts with your vote, check out challenger number two.
