Details of Railers and the Ticket Luck value
The Railers are one of the few country bands that have made themselves recognized all across the country with their unique music and subtle lyrics. The band, formerly known as Tin Cup Gypsy, is critically acclaimed for their live acts and performances. During half a decade of releasing music, the band has toured with some notable music artists whilst continuing their own touring. Making their debut from Nashville, the band has since released one studio album, two EPs and a single.
The band consists of four members; Cassandra Lawson, Tyler Obgan and Jordan and Jonathan Lawson. The latter two are brothers that hail from Missouri whereas Cass belongs to Arizona and Obgan is an Indiana native. The three Lawsons studied together at the North Arizona University and began their first musical experiments there. Later in 2004, they moved to Nashville and met Obgan, and laid down the foundations for the band.
During their earlier years, the band had different names like Tin Pan Gypsy, Tin Cup Lizzie, Tin Cup Jazzy, Tin Cup Grey and Tin Cup Gypsies among others. The band however, officially debuted under Tin Cup Gypsy. Under this name, they had been active from 2010 to 2012. After striking a record deal with Warner Music Nashville and a publishing deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, the band's name and image was revamped completely to target a wider audience. Since 2012, the band has been performing as The Railers.
The Railers have a unique blend of music that takes elements from folk, bluegrass and jazz. Their songs have rich melodies that fuse together the various genres harmoniously. Their music features a wide array of instruments from the violin, mandolin, concertina, bass, percussion, acoustic guitars to three-part harmonies. They have attracted diverse listeners from country lovers to bluegrass fanatics and from jazz enthusiasts to folk fans. The band has been influenced by James Taylor, The Eagles, New Grass Revival and Bonnie Raitt and has taken elements from their music and woven it into pattern that is distinctly their own.
In just a few years, the Railers have worked with numerous established stars. Their musical sessions with multiplatinum music artists such as Josh Turner, Lorrie Morgan and Steve Holly and Justin Unger have been widely appreciated. They have also appeared in TV shows, which have introduced them to an even wider audience. These shows include Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Martha Stewart Show, Grand Ole Opry Live, CMT's Cross-Country and most notably the 2006 Nashville Independence Day Celebration.
Under the name Tin Cup Gypsy, the band released an album and an EP. Both were well-received and the diversity of music was appreciated. Calico is a ten-track album with the highlighting singles “Bury Me,” “Wildfire,” “Jack & Jill” and “Chase the Sun.” The EP Tin Cup Gypsy consists of three tracks including “Risk Is Right,” “Man Overboard” and “Battle Scars.”
In 2014, the Railers released their second EP and their first under the new stage name. It was titled The Geraldine Session. The EP included hits that charted on the Billboard charts. Later that year, they released their first single from their upcoming album. “Kinda Dig the Feeling” charted on the country charts and has become one of the band's best-selling singles.
The quartet is currently out on their Tattoo Your Name Tour and will be stopping by at major cities across the country. So grab Railers tickets and enjoy their brilliant blend of country and folk music, live.
