SouthRidge is a classic country band located in Central Indiana. Performing together for over six years, the band has played in venues all over Indiana as well as Chicago, Detroit, Columbus, OH, Iowa, and as an opener for Joe Nichols in Pittsburgh, PA. With a setlist comprised of classic country hits and southern/classic rock favorites, SouthRidge brings a taste of Nashville honky-tonks to the Midwest.
Growing up in an extended family of musicians, Tony Randolph has been playing drums since childhood. Prior to being a part of The Wandering Cowboys/SouthRidge, Tony spent over 20 years with the country band Wanted (a band that included his father) opening for several national acts in the 90's. Tony currently resides in Selma, IN with his wife, Lynn.
A veteran of the Nashville music scene, Tracy has performed at many of the most famous venues in the Music City including the legendary Grand Ole Opry. As a regular performer in the famed Broadway honky-tonks, Tracy has been a part of some impromptu performances with national acts such as John Rich and Cole Swindell. Tracy currently resides in Kokomo, IN with his wife, Amy.
Over his decades long music career, Larry has both opened for and toured with national acts. At the young age of 18, Larry toured with the Hagar Twins on the Hee Haw tour. In addition, he has spent time on the road with artists David Frizell, Kenny Price and Hank Thompson just to name a few. His white-hot lead licks and smooth vocal harmonies are an integral part of the SouthRidge sound.
In February of 2019, Eric Shaw joined the Wandering Cowboys to form SouthRidge. Prior to joining SouthRidge, Eric spent the previous several years as a solo singer/songwriger in central Indiana, playing around 40 shows per year. Originally from Chattanooga, TN, Eric's southern roots blend perfectly with the band to form an authentic honky-tonk sound. Eric currently resides in Westfield, IN with his wife Lori and two sons.
