We were just as surprised as everyone else when we first got word of the formation of a new band comprised of a couple former members of Cross Canadian Ragweed. Grady Cross, Randy Ragsdale, and Jason Young caused quite the stir when they announced themselves in October '19.

Now we finally get our first taste of the new band, it's just a few seconds but give "Family Name," a listen.

Music has always been known to bring people together, which is just the case for new Oklahoma band Cross Rags and Young. The trio, comprised of former Cross Canadian Ragweed members Grady Cross (guitar) and Randy Ragsdale (drums), along with singer-songwriter Jason Young, offers a unique spin on the red dirt-meets-Texas country sound. All hailing from Yukon, Oklahoma, the three knew of each other in their individual careers, but never thought their musical paths would cross on down the road.
