Randy Rogers Band Announces New Album, 'Nothing Shines Like Neon'

It has been a great year of music for Texas country fans.

After releasing the critically acclaimed Hold My Beer: Vol. 1 collaborative album with Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers and his band will release a brand new set of tracks next year.

Nothing Shines Like Neon, set for release Jan. 15, 2016, has been promised to be a truly "traditional country album."  The record has been in the making for the past two years, with recording sessions stuffed into breaks during the group's always-intensive touring schedule. The album was recorded in Austin, Texas with production and co-writing from Buddy Cannon, who's known for his work with Kenny Chesney and George Strait.

The album will also feature duets with Alison Krauss and Jamey Johnson, and will be Randy Rogers Band's first full-length release since Trouble in 2013.

"[We] hoped Neon would build upon the traditions of the country albums we grew up listening to," the band said in a statement. "It's country. We're proud of it. We hope our fans enjoy it."

If Neon follows in the footsteps of Rogers' most recent work, it'll likely be one of the most celebrated albums of 2016. Until its release, the band will continue touring throughout the southern states until the end of November. A full list of tour dates is available at the Randy Rogers Band website.
