Randy Rogers Band raises flag for Fourth of July

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - After the Fourth on Broadway Parade in Lubbock, the Randy Rogers Band members were spending time together outside their tour bus by the outdoor stage on Broadway. 

Rogers had just arrived into Lubbock and was astonished at what he saw. 

Outside of Lubbock National Bank, his band members counted twelve flag poles with no flags on them at all. So, they took action. 

They went to a store and bought a Texas and American flag, and proudly raised them on the poles outside their bus. 

Rogers said it was their patriotic duty.

"We're proud of that and I don't know what happened City of Lubbock, but we took care of the flag situation,” he said. “I'm proud to be an American. I'm proud I get to play music for a living, and all the men and women who have fought so hard to give us our freedom throughout the years, we have to give back and today is one of those days."

Rogers said two of his band members actually went to Texas Tech and his wife is from Plainview. He said there is a reason the band keeps returning to Lubbock to play shows for the past fourteen years, and said he will definitely be back.
