Just two Texans joined together by their love of music and dirt roads, Randy Rogers & Wade Bowen released their debut album as a duo in 2015 titled Hold My Beer Vol. 1. Shortly after the album’s release the two successfully completed a sold-out tour together.
For those who missed the performances, Rogers & Bowen have now released a fantastic 19-song live acoustic album called Watch This which features songs from Hold My Beer and a few songs thrown in from their respective solo albums.
A nicely put together acoustic performance, the two vocally skilled songwriters showcase their witty personalities and their oddly strong chemistry which mostly resembles brothers who like to pick on one another.
Rogers and Bowen both have nearly a decade of experience performing on their own and it’s certainly captured within this album. They perform songs such as “Tonight’s Not The Night” and “Buy Myself A Chance.” Together the two display raw vocals and entertaining music. You can see their full potential while playing “Songs About Trucks” and “You Had Me At My Best.” Both have timeless voices that can carry you back decades to the John Mellencamp or Rob Stewart era. Their red dirt roots show and their songs are a mix of true country and a little bit rock and roll. Their songwriting flair also shines bright with songs like “West Texas Rain.”
Watch This brings you extremely close to a live experience and can be enjoyed in any situation. There is something for everyone on this 19-track storybook. So sit back, grab a cold one and enjoy the untouched technique of these two amazing talents.
