Renegade Rail

Renegade Rail

 Springfield, Missouri, USA

Do you like REAL music about REAL life? Renegade Rail brings everything they have, musically, physically, and emotionally to the stage – combining influences, as diverse as bluegrass and straight-forward rock to create their own brand of highly energetic, groove-laden, “Blue Collar Music.”


Self-described as an “outlaw country band with southern rock and red dirt influences,” Renegade Rail leaves audiences across the south with ringing ears, melodies running through their heads and the inescapable feeling that someone gets it. And they all want to hear more.
The group has worked their particular brand of magic at Festivals, clubs and venues around Georgia, Wyoming, South Dakota, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, and Louisiana naming among their favorites The Blue Note, The Snorty Horse Saloon, and The Beaumont Club , as well as any venue large or small that respects original music. They have performed at a variety of large festivals in Kansas and Oklahoma, including the Country Fever Fest in Pryor (OK) and the Winfield (KS) Country Roundup. Featured as one of Mavrik Magazine’s “Artists on the Rise,” the guys in The Rail have performed with notable acts including Hank Williams, Jr., Dierks Bentley, Chris Cagle, Jason Aldean, Trent Tomlinson, Molly Hatchet, The Kentucky Headhunters, The Randy Rogers Band, Charlie Robison, Kevin Fowler, Stoney Larue, Cross Canadian Ragweed, and Bleu Edmonson.

They made it to the top 16 on CMT’s Music City Madness Video Contest with the video to their single “Just You and Me”. Also, they were picked up by XM Radio’s X-Country channel 12, and spent 17 weeks on the XM Radio charts, topping out at #3.
Recently receiving airplay and national exposure on“radiofreetexas”, also REV FM based out of Kerrville Texas, and “The Outlaw” 92.5 in San Antonio , and many Clear channels throughout the Midwest. The Rail’s album, Ragged, produced by Mike McClure, (who is considered to be THE producer for Red Dirt/Texas music and a pioneer of the genre) is filled from start to finish with screaming electric guitar licks interlaced with acoustic guitar, hard-driving vocals and songs that speak about life. And not a life, whitewashed by the elusive “they” searching for a radio hit – but real life, lived to its fullest by the four guys driving this train down that Renegade Rail.
