Mark McKinney will open for the “Randy Rogers Band” Saturday, June 16, at the 68th annual Watermelon Jubilee in Stockdale.

Mark McKinney distinguishes himself from the typical “rockin’ country” artist by drawing from a wide range of influences. He credits his father for instilling in him an appreciation for upbeat, energetic songs.

The blend of influences from Willie Nelson and Charlie Daniels to rock and pop has helped secure him a unique place in the country music/southern rock scene -- and helped keep him from getting boxed into one genre.

McKinney’s four singles from his debut album were all well-received by radio and the Texas Music Chart.

The leadoff single from the new album, “Middle America,” is the title track. McKinney’s high-energy live show has won over a legion of fans and earned him a reputation as “The Entertainer” of the country/rock scene.

Whether on the radio or on the stage, McKinney is proving himself a force to be reckoned with. Honesty, energy, homegrown country, and a little bit of rock ’n’ roll are hard to argue with -- and McKinney is quite comfortable in that skin.

“Randy Rogers Band”

The “Randy Rogers Band” built its audience by combining forces: It’s a dynamic live act centered around songs that fit the rowdy, party vibe of the concert circuit, but their songs also say something.

The band combines traditional country sound with a rollicking, swagger influenced by rugged sounds from such diverse sources as Waylon Jennings and “Stone Temple Pilots.”

The band’s latest album ranges from the hypnotic country of “Buy Myself A Chance” and the first single, “In My Arms Instead,” to the propulsive buzz of “Never Be That High” to the painful conclusion, “This Is Goodbye.” Rogers’ various performances reflect the wide-ranging influences that snapped together in the process, evoking at times the sneer of Steve Earle, the soul of Bakersfield’s Monty Byrom (formerly of “Big House”), and the vulnerability of Keith Urban.

With its infectious hooks and daring attitude, the album underscores the iTunes popularity of the “Randy Rogers Band,” its critical appeal, and its significance on the nation’s concert circuit, where it has broken attendance records at numerous clubs across the heartland.
