Music has always been known to bring people together, which is just the case for new Oklahoma band Cross Rags and Young. The trio, comprised of former Cross Canadian Ragweed members Grady Cross (guitar) and Randy Ragsdale (drums), along with singer-songwriter Jason Young, offers a unique spin on the red dirt-meets-Texas country sound. All hailing from Yukon, Oklahoma, the three knew of each other in their individual careers, but never thought their musical paths would cross on down the road. After Cross Canadian Ragweed disbanded in 2010, Cross and Ragsdale took a much needed break from the road to focus on family life at home and make up for the time they lost due to touring heavily for 16 years. Young, on the other hand, was pursuing building a name for himself as a solo artist on the Oklahoma and Texas music scenes, affectionately dubbed in recent years as the Jason Young Band by his loyal fan base. When Ragsdale occasionally started sitting in with Young on local gigs, the spark of once again making music was lit inside him. While the sound and style of Cross Rags and Young is still being determined as they head into the studio to begin work on their debut EP, they promise to offer that familiar sound that all of their fans have grown to love in years past.
