Texas-based Country group the Randy Rogers Band, and Eddie Montgomery of the Grammy-nominated country vocal duo Montgomery Gentry, are set to perform at the PRCA Ram Rodeos during the 150th state fair, set for Aug. 26 through Sept. 5 in Pueblo.

The Randy Rogers Band, from San Marcos, Texas, has performed together for 17 years.
The band is comprised of lead vocalist Randy Rogers, drummer Les Lawless, fiddler Brady Black, bassist Johnny Chops, guitarist and vocalist Geoffrey Hill, and do-it-all musician Todd Stewart, who plays guitar, fiddle, mandolin and keyboard.
Eddie Montgomery, half of the duo Montgomery Gentry, continues to build on the performing legacy he built with former bandmate Troy Gentry, who died in a helicopter crash in September 2017.
Montgomery Gentry’s signature style of country with southern rock influences has enthralled fans since the band’s inception in 1999. The duo was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2009.
