The Texas country stalwarts’ new video pays tribute to their favorite hot spots in their home state’s beloved, historic San Antonio.
A decade and a half into the group’s career, the Randy Rogers Band and Texas country are practically inextricable at this point. The two are almost as intertwined, in fact, as the image of the Lone Star State and the historic Battle of the Alamo.
Fitting, then, that on Nothing Shines Like Neon, the band’s most Texas- and most country-sounding effort yet, Rogers would sing about the Texas city that is home to the River Walk, myriad great Tex-Mex restaurants, and the site where Republic of Texas Col. William B. Travis and defenders including James Bowie and Davy Crockett made their legendary last stand against the Mexican forces of Gen. Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
“This video reflects our personality as a band and the city's importance to us,” Rogers says. “We stopped at some of our favorite spots in town. Some of our best nights have been spent in San Antonio. Viva San Antone!”
Indeed, the video for “San Antone,” the opening cut to Neon, is a mix of live performance shots and sightseeing as the band takes in tourist hot spots and hidden gems. “Like Crockett at the Alamo/Y’all can find me down in San Antone,” Rogers sings in the chorus. After watching the video, you’ll want to find yourself there, too.
