The series started with The Ranch Road Band, an Americana/Texas country band from Atascosa County in South Texas that originated in 2017. Since their start, they have received numerous awards and nominations for their music. Their sound is a fusion of country, Tex-Mex, folk and rock with a splash of whatever the band feels like doing. The band has been busy on the road since the release of their latest album, “Road Rage,” which includes the single “Corpus Christi,” which reached charts in South Texas as well as New Mexico, Nevada, Birmingham, England and Luxembourg, Germany. Ranch Road continues to tour Texas and beyond and is working on their next album release.
