The lively country jam group debuts their latest track exclusively with C&I.
Known for their high-energy live performances, the indie country group the Robbie Walden Band are shifting gears by embracing somber undertones for their third full studio album, When the Rooster Crows, out February 25.
The five-piece group — consisting of singer Robbie Walden, drummer Gabe Burdett, guitarist John Coker, pedal-steel player Dan Tyack, and bassist Blake Fleming — transformed reflection on the last five years into an album.
From experiencing divorce and self-destruction to discovering solace, happiness, and true love, When the Rooster invites listeners to join the group’s extremely personal journey of growth.
The heartbreaking track “50 Years Too Late” marks the starting point of When the Rooster Crows’ overarching voyage.
“’50 Years Too Late’ is about living in today’s fast-paced world while hanging on to some of the traditions, morals, and family values of the past,” says Walden. “It’s a reflection of living and raising a family today, feeling the pressures of change you may not be comfortable with. The story is told with three-part harmonies, chicken-pickin’ guitar licks, and a traditional half-time beat you will want to play over and over again.”
