From the first note to the final chorus the band Lonesome Road offers audiences an exhilarating music experience. The group brings together a show that combines high energy along with great fun to produce a performance that has attracted fans young and old. The band has come a long way from the Willamette Valley of Oregon and now calls Nashville, Tennessee home. Their self-titled debut album, released in summer of 2004 has been reviewed as refreshing and new and has resulted in good sales of units. From this album their first single "You Won't be Lonely Long" was released to country radio in several markets and has enjoyed a very solid play rotation. The radio audience has helped spur increased play in those markets and bring name recognition to the band. On the heels of their album release Lonesome Road embarked on an 8 week tour spanning the country as the opening act for many of today's country music superstars such as Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn, Clint Black, Martina McBride and Keith Urban. The band hopes to build on this solid start and looks forward to greater success in the future.
