As Randy Rogers prepares for a trip into Abilene for the 3rd annual Outlaws & Legends Music Fest, the country star took some time to talk with me on the KEAN afternoon show. We talked about the concert to benefit Ben Richey Boys Ranch, and much more.

From the beginning, Randy corrected me. I introduced him as the co-headliner of Outlaws & Legends, and he was quick to tell me, “I’m gonna say that we are opening the show.” out of sincere respect to the legendary Merle Haggard, a man Rogers confesses is “my favorite all-time country singer.”. He also explains how exciting it was to open for George Strait when his farewell tour stopped in Houston. “I think that night they set the record for 80,000 people there at Reliant Stadium. Man, being on that stage, talk about feeling small…I don’t ever get nervous, and I was nervous for the first time in a long time, and that actually felt good.” He also pointed out that playing with ‘King’ George and ‘The Hag’ in less than a week’s time “I’m just going to go on the record as saying it’s been a pretty damn good week.”. Here’s the first part of our conversation:

In the second portion of my interview with Randy Rogers, we talked about his new CD, which will be released on April 30th. He tells us “the people that have heard this record, they all have the same thing to say about it. They say ‘it’s pretty dang country’…give it a listen come April 30th, and you can be the judge.”. He also discussed his annual ‘Hold My Beer and Watch This’ acoustic tour with friend Wade Bowen coming up this summer. I asked Randy if there was any goal that he would like to achieve that’s on his ‘bucket list’, and he quickly responded, “yeah, well, it’s this weekend [laughs]. It’s this weekend getting to play with Merle. I’m super excited about that.”. Take a listen to the rest of the interview here:

Abilene is proud to give Randy Rogers a chance to cross something off his ‘bucket list’. From the sound of it, Randy is as thrilled about the show as anybody.
