Alberta’s Renegade Station has embarked on a dynamic musical journey that sees the talented quartet elevating their already impressive reputation for creative excellence and superior showmanship to new heights.
Sometimes, when friends come together to create something, magic happens. That is exactly what happened when friends Kent Nixon, Russ and Luanne Carl, and Scott Mcknight came together to form the award winning band, Renegade Station.
What started out as being a backup band for a local variety show, they quickly learned that they had something special and that they had a chemistry that needed to be expanded upon. They started taking gigs for anything they could. Weddings, ball tournaments, and curling bonspiels. This turned out to be an amazing way to cut their teeth in the Alberta music industry, and gave them the experience they needed to take that next step to the next level.
In 2013 they signed on with Sirroma Entertainment to take their career to the next level. Releasing radio singles, and touring and promoting those singles across Canada, Renegade Station soon proved to industry and fans alike that they were to be an important part of the Canadian Country Music Scene.
Their radio singles have garnered them much attention, and includes their Top 50 hit “Who’s Gonna Love Me Tonight” which also won them the inaugural Single of the Year award at the 2019 Country Music Alberta Awards. They also took home Group of the Year for 2015 and 2016, and the highly coveted Fans Choice Award in 2015. In 2016 Luanne was also nominated for a Canadian Country Music Award for Bass Player of the Year.
Renegade Station is well known for their incredible harmonies, which has had them compared to Little Big Town, Fleetwood Mac and Lady A. That is what first drew them together, was their harmonies, and it is what continues to keep them together. That undeniable chemistry. Their energetic stage show always leaves fans wanting more.
They continue to write and work on new music, and 2022 is slated for a new single release.
Thanks for being Along for the Ride!
