Washington, D.C. (March 2, 2020) — Randy Rogers Band kicked off its 20th year together with an RIAA Gold record for its single, “Kiss Me In the Dark.”

On Thursday, Feb. 27, prior to its show at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., the band stopped by the RIAA Headquarters to visit with the staff and were surprised with a plaque commemorating the Gold certification, by RIAA Chairman & CEO Mitch Glazier.

“Gold! Here’s to more kisses in the dark,” says Randy Rogers.

“Congratulations to the Randy Rogers Band!” adds Mitch. “We are thrilled to welcome the group into the prestigious RIAA Gold certified club!”

The band followed Thursday’s sold-out concert with a show at New York’s Terminal 5 on Friday, Feb. 28. Both shows celebrated Texas’ Independence Day and featured Josh Abbott Band and legend Pat Green.

Randy Rogers Band continues its signature road warrior touring with shows in Massachusetts, Louisiana, and a special night at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium on April 3, followed by a run on the West Coast the second week in April. (Click here for a full list of tour dates.)

About Randy Rogers Band:

In a business where bands come and go and membership is often a revolving door, the Randy Rogers Band — dubbed “a perpetual live favorite” by Rolling Stone — has been making music and touring together for nearly 19 years. The culmination of the six-member band’s musical journey thus far can be heard on its latest album, Hellbent (4.26). The 11 tracks were produced by Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile, Jason Isbell, Kacey Musgraves) and recorded at the legendary RCA Studio A in Nashville, Tennessee.

Randy and the band have become skilled at capturing a unique live energy and passion on their albums and Hellbent is the perfect example. With lifetime streams nearing 300 million, this “endearing and enduring country treasure” (MusicRow Magazine) continues to forge ahead — “the guarantee of good music and a good time is what keeps fans coming back” (New York Times). So, what keeps a band together for nearly two decades? Randy cites the blend of the members’ distinctive personalities, represented in a dynamic musical chemistry that has taken the Randy Rogers Band beyond the competitive music scene in their native Texas, to a national fan base with sold-out shows across the country.
