The Randy Rogers Band released Nothing Shines Like Neon back in early 2016, but the album keeps on churning out great singles. The group just dropped the beautiful new video to their latest single, “Meet Me Tonight.”
The video features a lonesome cowboy reliving memories on the range with his former cowgirl love interest, now a distant memory. He sits at an empty bar, playing the scenes over and over in his head.
As he wallows in beer and self-pity, gorgeous cutscenes feature the love interest riding through stunning landscapes. While he fights his own inner turmoil, overhead footage of the cowboy’s small town and a separate valley town paint a vast portrait.
Interestingly enough, neither Randy nor the rest of the band appears in the video. Instead, they went with a cinematic approach. “Unfortunately for our fellow in the song, his lover is long gone,” Rogers tells Rolling Stone Country. “She only exists in the memories trapped inside his head.”
Randy Rogers Band received near universal praise for their eighth studio album Nothing Shines Like Neon. Critics heralded it as one of the best neo-traditional offerings yet. The record is also the band’s first since leaving their label, MCA Nashville. The album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard country charts.
Debut single “Neon Blues” did well at Texas radio, coming in at No. 50 on the most-played songs in Texas for 2016. But next song “San Antone” did even better, landing as the No. 4 song at Texas radio for the entire year.
Rogers also released an album with buddy Wade Bowen called Watch This in 2016. The live acoustic album features the two trading off songs as they had for years on the “Hold My Beer And Watch This.”
The band is currently still supporting Nothing Shines Like Neon on tour into November.
