Texas twang and guitar-fueled rock ‘n’ roll stomp

Logan Samford and Anthony Enriquez grew up near the Palo Duro canyon in the Texas panhandle, raised on the sounds of the south — the country hits that came across the FM radio, gospel songs from the church choir and the George Strait albums that every Texan seemed to own. But they also loved the sweeping, hard-hitting anthems of bands like Kings of Leon. Drawing on those influences, Shotgun Rider carved out their own sound: a mix of country twang and guitar-fueled rock ‘n’ roll stomp, as epic and darkly cinematic as the Texas landscape that inspired it. Palo Duro, the band’s full-length debut, is a nod to Shotgun Rider’s roots. The duo cut their teeth with long, nightly sets at local bars and restaurants, then expanded across Texas and Oklahoma. A series of EPs, each one shining a light on Logan’s elastic voice and Anthony’s melodic, muscular guitar playing, proved to be popular not only in the Bible Belt, but across a nation’s worth of country/rock fans. By the time Shotgun Rider began recording Palo Duro in Nashville, they had racked up more than 6 million streams on Spotify, cracking the Top 20 on the iTunes Country chart three times along the way.
