FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED TO TAKE A BREAK FROM LIFE ON THE ROAD
Nashville, TN — May 19, 2010 — This morning, Cross Canadian Ragweed announced their decision to take a break from life on the road. The band of brothers comprised of Grady Cross, Cody Canada, Randy Ragsdale and Jeremy Plato are true road warriors. They’ve played over 220 dates a year for 13 of the last 15 years, solid. They are family to one another. They’ve watched each other grow up, get married and start their families. Always in synch with each other, often with marriages and births just months apart. While they love their time on the road, each has yearned to spend more time with their families at home. Together they have made the decision that it is time to take a break.
Wow. It just doesn’t seem like it has been FIVE years. It’s never too soon for a reunion tour, right?
