“Hellbent” is the new Randy Rogers Band album which was just released on Friday, April 26, 2019, producing new material for this Texas country favorite for the first time in three years. It’s the band’s eighth album release and was produced at the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville. With close to two decades of experience writing, singing, and now producing together, the band has refined their sound and features a number of co-written and original songs on this latest album.

Taking their influences from varying genres, the Randy Rogers Band covers “Hell Bent on a Heartache,” by late country/folk artist Guy Clark, leading to their album’s name. “I believe in this record. I believe in these guys. I think we’re in our prime, and we’ve been doing this for so long. We needed a really great record,” Rogers explained at a recent Nashville BMI press event. “That’s why this record took us a while to make. I wanted to have the right thing to say.” The band is presently touring and marketing “Hellbent” at various U.S. stops, several of which are in Texas.

Shared on the band’s official YouTube channel, the Guy Clark cover stands out prominently among the collection of songs shared on the project, which fans will love to hear both live and on this new record. A report by the Texas Music Pickers recently said that, like every great musical project, there is a mixture of “humor, heartbreak, and classic storytelling” rolled into “Hellbent,” which was set for pre-order back in February. A sound bite of the first single from the release, entitled “Crazy People,” was posted to the band’s Facebook page for fans to get a first listen.

“Hellbent” is just the latest accomplishment in Rogers’ own well-accomplished career. Earning a degree in public relations, in addition to the band’s music career and touring, Rogers himself co-owns a number of great Texas venues. He’s also a Big Blind Management founding partner, helping to guide and support the careers of other musicians and performers. He has also collaborated with Texas legend Robert Earl Keen, as well as Wade Bowen, and most recently joined Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Lyle Lovett on the “Austinology” project by Michael Martin Murphey.
