Randy Rogers and Wade Bowen reflect on the songs that built them in their brand-new track, “Rhinestoned” – available now on all streaming platforms and digital retailers.
Written by Lori McKenna, Ryan Beaver and Ashley Ray, the tune serves as a clever ode to old-school Country music, as it details the storytelling and musicianship that make the genre so special – paying homage to Country legends like Hank Williams Sr. and George Jones along the way.
“‘Rhinestoned’ is pure country badass-ness,” says Bowen. “From the moment I heard it, I wanted to cut it… I had to cut it. One of the many reasons why Randy and I love doing these albums together is because we get to create classic-sounding Country. This song is a perfect example of that. It sounds like it could have been one of the old staples you grew up listening to – it’s also my favorite track on the entire album.”
“’Rhinestoned’ makes me wanna put on my boots and hat and find someone to dance with – it’s solid country gold,” says Rogers. “It really does take me back to 21 years old, drinking for the first time in some honky tonk… I lived this song.”
