Remember the Cross Canadian Ragweed? Fans were shocked after their break up because they were one of the most successful Texas Red Dirt Country bands ever. Well upon the disbanding of Cross Canadian Ragweed, The Departed took root. Former CCRW frontman Cody Canada wasted no time getting things started in 2014, launching a major tour after appearing at the 2014 MusicFest in Steamboat, CO in early Jan.
The Departed are also hard at work writing new songs for their next studio album out in 2014, release date TBA. Canada’s live solo acoustic album ‘Some Old, Some New, Maybe A Cover Or Two’ was released in November, debuting in the Top 40 on Billboard’s Country Albums chart.
With Canada taking the lead on guitar and vocals since guitarist Seth James’ departure last fall, the band has seized the opportunity to bring some old Cross Canadian Ragweed favorites back to their live set.
