The Lowdown: Brandon Rhyder

Country music’s Brandon Rhyder has unquestionably established himself as a fixture in the Texas Country/Red Dirt scene. Rhyder has released eight albums and boasts an impressive four #1 singles on the Texas Music Charts, along with an abundance of other milestones. He continues to push boundaries and deliver fresh material, all while maintaining his signature sound that fans have grown to love.

His latest album, That’s Just Me, which is produced by both Rhyder and his longtime guitar player Matt Powell, served as his eighth full-length album over the span of 12 years. Recorded and carefully crafted at The Zone in Dripping Springs, TX, this album includes co-writes from fellow Texan powerhouses and friends Josh Abbott and Wade Bowen. The debut single from the album, “Haggard,” was heavily inspired by Charlie Daniels and Riders in the Sky and is a clear picture into Rhyder’s youth. The song proved to be wildly successful as it scored the #1 position on the Texas Regional Radio Report (TRRR).
