As part of our whirlwind Hunter Hayes album release week, we had the chance to see The Railers open for him in Stamford as part of the 24 Hour Road Race. Based in Nashville, TN, the country group is comprised of brothers Jordan and Jonathan Lawson, Cassandra Lawson and Tyler Oban.
Their set included a few of their original songs, a country-fied cover of It’s Time, and a jam they simply called “The Irish Song.” We were majorly impressed by their musicianship, as they rocked out on the fiddle, concertina, violin and mandolin, among other instruments. The Railers have been working on their debut album, and their first single is expected to hit country radio later this summer.
We loved the group’s energy on stage, as well as their interaction with the crowd. They completely won over the energetic audience. We’re sure we will be hearing lots more from them in the future!
