"In November Red Dirt Road was the performer at the monthly coffeehouse Tres Café at Holy Trinity Church in Sherman. They wowed the large (over 100) crowd that came to hear the group play a repetoire made up exclusively of their own songs written by Doug Mathewson, Susannah Marker, Peter Nelson and Missy Alexander. Their music is a blend of swing, western swing, bluegrass and gospel and the vocal harmony is superb."
“This year, the Red Dirt Road Band made another trip to town, playing some high-quality Americana, country, and gospel music...the guys and gals put on a great show every time I see them play.”
