About The Rangers

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. "Dan and I sat down in our bedroom as young men and began jamming to Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings. We slowly began to write sappy country songs, And from there, we met the guys and it was onwards and upwards!"--Ranger Mike (Lead Vocals) What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Charlie Daniels, The Charlie Daniels Band - The Collection: Fire On the Mountain - Million Mile Reflections - Full Moon Jesse Daniel, Rollin' On Pink Floyd, The Dark Side of the Moon Remastered Rollin On is in our opinion one of the best Country albums out there, and became a major inspiration for us. Dark Side of the Moon, gave us the feel for our 2nd record's solos & CDB was our very first inspiration in music! Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Quartzsite Saloon” This was the second song Mike Abell (Lead Vocals) ever wrote, and has become a staple in every one of the Band's live shows. "I wrote a lot of cheesy songs back in the day, this one for whatever reason, stood out from the rest." What’s one of the most memorable moments in your career so far? Playing a live show at ITC in Algonquin IL. We met so many amazing people and played our new music for them. The response we got, and the warmth we were shown is something we'll never forget. Is there anything left on your bucket list as an artist or band? Tour the country, making a living with our music & doing it our way; bringing back real country music. And finally, hitting that Grand Ol' Opry Stage together, making the Rangers a country staple for years to come!
