The Randy Rogers Band has plenty of reasons to celebrate this summer. A new studio album (Hellbent), currently heading up the Billboard charts and a nationwide tour.
Randy Rogers has sent seven consecutive albums — including his 2015 duet album with Wade Bowen, Hold My Beer, Volume 1 — into the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Hellbent finds him working once again with his longtime band, whose members will celebrate their 20-year anniversary next year. That’s not the group’s only recent milestone. In addition to debuting at Number Three on the Billboard Country chart and Number Four on the Americana/Folk chart, Hellbent also cracked the all-genre Top 40 — a landmark for any band, but a particular rarity for an independent act.
With more than 97 million plays on Pandora in 2018 alone, Hellbent, debuting at the very top of the iTunes country chart while receiving prominent displays on Spotify, Pandora, Tidal, Apple Music, and Amazon Music. “Crazy People,” the album’s lead single, has already received over 1.1 million streams, landing placements in a number of high-subscriber Spotify playlists along the way. Additionally, the song has also dominated the Texas Radio Chart, holding the Number One position for two weeks running.
With tracks like “Drinking Money,” “Comal County Line,” “Fire in the Hole,” and “Hell Bent On a Heartache” also receiving placements on playlists like Pandora’s New Country Now, Spotify’s Next From Nashville, and Apple Music’s Don’t Mess With Texas, Hellbent is just beginning its journey.
