Last weekend, the Randy Rogers Band became the first act to sell out back-to-back shows at the historic John T. Floore’s Country Store in Helotes, Texas.
How impressive is that? Considering the venue’s history and the company it puts Randy Rogers in, it’s pretty darn impressive.
John T. Floore’s Country Store (which is, ironically, not a store at all), has been serving up some of the best country music and homemade tamales in Texas for 75 years. Country greats such as Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Ernest Tubb and Bob Wills have all graced the Floore’s stage throughout its history.
Rogers posted a video thanking the fans for helping make it a historic weekend for the band. Floore’s holds a special place in the group’s heart: they recorded their most recent live album, 2014’s aptly titled Homemade Tamales, at Floore’s. Rogers has said on multiple occasions that Floore’s was the number one place Rogers wanted to play growing up a young songwriter.
Rogers says in the video, “I’m not gonna lie, backstage we had a little champagne.” After the year Rogers had and their incredible rebound with this year’s acclaimed Nothing Shines Like Neon, they earned it.
