Wednesday Video Spotlight: Cody Canada & The Departed's "Ballad of Rosalie" tops Texas Music Chart
Red dirt rockers Cody Canada & The Departed have topped the Texas Music Charts with “The Ballad of Rosalie,” the lead-off single from the their debut album, “This Is Indian Land.”
After Oklahoma-rooted red dirt band Cross Canadian Ragweed announced last year an indefinite hiatus, singer/songwriter/guitarist Canada and singer/bassist Jeremy Plato formed The Departed with Texas guitarist Seth James, Tulsa keyboardist Steve Littleton and Yukon drummer David Bowen. For their first project, their frontman proposed they showcase their Oklahoma music heroes.
“This Is Indian Land” is an 18-track salute to top Sooner State songwriters, from Leon Russell and J.J. Cale to the Red Dirt Rangers and Tom Skinner. “The Ballad of Rosalie” was written by Randy Pease.

In addition, my fine colleague Jennifer Palmer recently interviewed guitarist Grady Cross about his post-Ragweed venture, Grady’s 66 Pub in Yukon. Cross bought and opened the pub in the former 50 Yard Line Club downtown on Route 66, the bar that was the very first venue Cross Canadian Ragweed performed in 1991.
