They have sold more than 600,000 albums, are a staple on the Texas music charts and regularly sell out venues across the country. Randy Rogers Band has to be one of the best bands you’re not hearing on country radio. Hopefully that will all change with the release of their newest single “Satellite,” which can be found on their upcoming album Homemade Tamales – Live at Floore's due out April 15th.
The mood for “Satellite” is immediately set by Brady Black’s fiddle. Feelings of loneliness, longing and despondency can be felt in those opening notes. Randy’s unique voice conveys sadness, urgency and hope as the song, and tempo, progresses.
“Satellite” is about the demise of a relationship; one that means so much to you that you feel alone and without a purpose now that it ended. “I feel like I’m lost out here/Floating around in the atmosphere.” In the song, he wonders why they’re not together, while at the same time wants, and waits, for them to find their way to each other; even willing to guide her back to him: “I’ll be your satellite”. But by the conclusion of the song, you get the sense that he’s still out there, spinning around.
“When the lights the turn on in the streets tonight
And the moon hangs low, in the empty sky
I'll be thinking of you, wondering why
I'm a million miles away, just out here spinning around
Waiting to touch back down, like a satellite
Like a satellite"
Don’t wander. Zero in. Listen to “Satellite," get the single and make RRB a staple on your playlist.
