New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
On June 3, Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen -- two artists who are individually known for a string of acclaimed records and their hard-ticket touring -- will deliver 'Watch This,' a 19-track live acoustic album on their imprint, Lil' Buddy
Toons. The songs were recorded at the House of Blues in Dallas and at Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, TX, where Randy and Wade first met 15 years ago.
"We toured as a duo together for eight years before we finally addressed the question: 'When are you guys going to do a Randy and Wade album?'" says Randy.
"So, we went into the studio with Lloyd
Maines in the fall of 2014 and released 'Hold My Beer: Vol. 1' on April 20, 2015," he continues. "We had a lot of fun throughout the entire process and felt the next natural thing to do was release a live acoustic album that reflected what it's like to be in the room during one of our shows."
"Nineteen songs is a lot, but we couldn't bring ourselves to cut any of them," adds Wade. "You'll hear them as we play them during our 'Hold My Beer and Watch This' tour, and you'll hear some pretty colorful banter, too. We pick on each other, but it's all in good fun. Besides, it's just us, our guitars, two microphones and our friends in the audience. It's pretty raw, and we wanted to keep it as true-to-live as possible."
The set list that informed 'Watch This' drew from Randy and Wade's individual catalogs and the album will be supported by the duo's 10th annual "Hold My Beer and Watch This" tour. The first date is at Nutty Brown in Austin on May 26, followed by stops in College Station, Nacodoches and Wichita Falls, with more dates to be announced soon.
