The members of Renegade Rail bring everything they have musically to the table – combining influences as diverse as blue grass and straight-forward rock and roll to create their own brand of highly energetic, groove-laden, “blue collar music.” Self-described as an “outlaw country band with southern rock and red dirt influences,” Renegade Rail leaves audiences across the south with ringing ears,... melodies running through their heads and the inescapable feeling that someone gets it. And they all want to hear more.
The band has worked their particular brand of magic in clubs and venues around Georgia, Wyoming, South Dakota , Kansas, Missouri,Texas, and Oklahoma, naming among their favorites the Wormy Dog Saloon, The Snorty Horse Saloon and The Beaumont Club , as well as any venue large or small that respects original Red Dirt music. They have performed at a variety of large festivals in Kansas and Oklahoma, including the Country Fever Fest in Pryor (OK) and the Winfield (KS) Country Roundup. Featured as one of Maverik Magazine’s “Artists on the Rise,” the guys in The Rail have performed with notable acts including Hank Williams, Jr., Dierks Bentley, Trent Tomlinson, Molly Hatchet, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Randy Rogers Band, Charlie Robison, Kevin Fowler, Stoney Larue, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Chris Cagel, Lady Antebellum, Ricochet, Jason Aldean, Mike McClure, The LoCash Cowboys, and Bleu Edmonson.
Recently receiving much-deserved airplay and national exposure on XM Radio’s X-Country, and many Clear channels throughout the Midwest. The Rail’s album, Ragged, produced by Mike McClure, (who is considered to be THE producer for Red Dirt music and a pioneer of the genre) is filled from start to finish with screaming electric guitar licks interlaced with acoustic guitar, hard-driving vocals and songs that speak about life. And not a life whitewashed by the elusive “they” searching for a radio hit – but real life, lived to its fullest by the three men driving this train down that Renegade Rail.
