CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED TEARING UP THE ROAD WITH THE BIG DOGS!
Nashville -When Cross Canadian Ragweed
materialized onto the Midwestern music scene some years back, their unique blend
of country rock fell like a sledgehammer upon unsuspecting ears. Their
puzzling name quickly became common words on the lips of media and music
enthusiasts alike launching them full force onto a higher platform along side of
rock icons like Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top. It was a constant uphill jaunt for
the guys after they took their first "touring steps" and it wasn't
long until every venue in the Midwest was on the phone with booking agents
trying to set a date. Though at first it was hard to pin point exactly what it
was that the band was able to create on stage, it came to be known as that
certain "magic" bestowed only upon a certain few. Childhood friends
and music blood brothers, Cody Canada, Grady Cross, Jeremy Plato, and Randy
Ragsdale travel a road rich with creative prosperity, and now they are tearing
it up in even bigger company.
In the few years leading up to the band's signing with Universal South Records, Ragweed had developed a reputation that thrust them into the world of "arena," playing in company with musicians such as Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Hank Williams Jr., Rodney Crowell, Billy Joe Shaver, and Lee Ann Womack. Now at the end of 2003, with a ferocious crew of support behind them, Ragweed has roamed out of the yard to "piss with the big dogs." Scott Galloway at the William Morris Agency comments on his experience working with the band.
"It has been a GREAT year. By the end of 2003, CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED will
have performed in 2 countries, 33 states, and 120 cities delivering their one-of-a-kind musical revolution to the die-hards as well as gaining new friends and legions of fans every step of the way. They have done so much "damage" on the road this year that the big dogs took notice and they were invited to tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sammy Hagar, and ZZ Top. They were so well received and so embraced by the bands themselves, that there is no doubt in my mind that Cross Canadian Ragweed is the heir apparent to these rock n' roll icons. They will carry the torch. These guys rock like they'll live forever and they play every show like it's their last. Cross Canadian Ragweed is the real deal and I will say the same thing 30 years from now. These guys are SERIOUS. You can quote me on that."
Cross Canadian Ragweed will appear:
w/ Lynyrd Skynyrd on 10/30 in Little Rock, Arkansas
w/ Lynyrd Skynyrd on 10/31 in Bossier City, Louisiana
w/ ZZ Top on 11/20 in Knoxville, Tennessee
