The Red Dirt Rangers at 25
Save the date for this anniversary.
One of Oklahoma’s favorite home-grown acts turns 25 this year, and the Red Dirt Rangers are celebrating with a brand new CD and an Oklahoma World Tour. The trio of Brad Piccolo, John Cooper and Ben Han heads to all corners of the state beginning Thursday, May 30, with a show at the Oklahoma Territorial Plaza in Perkins, followed by shows in Oklahoma City and Tulsa. The Blue Door, 2805 N. McKinley Ave., OKC, welcomes the Rangers at 8 p.m. Friday, May 31. Tickets to this CD release party are $20. The trio moves on to the Guthrie Green outdoor stage, 111 E. Brady St., at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 2. The Brad James Band opens for the Rangers at Sunday's free show. Considered by the band as its best recording yet, the new album Lone Chimney contains the signature amalgam of traditional country, roots and rock for which the Rangers are esteemed. The band is so highly regarded, in fact, that the Oklahoma House of Representatives just honored the Rangers for its contributions to art, music and community. To say Oklahoma likes its Rangers is an understatement. To purchase tickets to the Blue Door party, go to www.bluedoorokc.com. For more on the Tulsa show, go to www.guthriegreen.com.
