Brandon Rhyder: That’s Just Me
“I could escape in music. I love words. I love being my own guy. It's not something that I sought to achieve, but I just see words and chords and songs differently than many.”
Country music’s Brandon Rhyder has undoubtedly established himself as a fixture in the Texas Country/Red Dirt scene. Rhyder has released seven albums and boasts an impressive four #1 singles on the Texas Music Charts, along with a plethora of other milestones. He continues to push boundaries and deliver fresh material, all while maintaining his signature sound that fans across the country have grown to adore. On August 20, 2013, Brandon will release a brand new full-length album, That’s Just Me, on Reserve Records via Thirty Tigers.
That’s Just Me, which is produced by both Rhyder and his longtime guitar player Matt Powell, serves as his eighth full-length album over the span of 12 years. Recorded and carefully crafted at The Zone in Dripping Springs, TX, this highly anticipated release includes co-writes from fellow Texan powerhouses and friends Josh Abbott and Wade Bowen that are sure to become fan favorites. The debut single from the album, "Haggard," is heavily inspired by Charlie Daniels and Riders in the Sky and is a clear picture into Rhyder’s youth. The song proved to be wildly successful as it scored the #1 position on the Texas Regional Radio Report (TRRR) in May.
Rhyder has entirely embedded himself into this twelve-track compilation. He explains, “The overall feeling about life resonates on this collection. I hope people will see that I, along with my family on and off the road are focused, driven and thrilled to share our passion.” Brandon has never made a secret of creating music that is personal and reflects real-life experiences, and That’s Just Me is no exception.
