Cody Canada Opens Up About Cross Canadian Ragweed’s Breakup

Cross Canadian Ragweed, Facebook

It’s been nearly two years since the most beloved band in the history of Red Dirt Music broke up. Rumors of  Cross Canadian Ragweed’s split have run rampant, but not many questions have actually been answered, until now. In an interview with DallasObserver.com, former Ragweed frontman Cody Canada revealed a lot and set the record straight on a few things.

Regarding Ragweed’s abrupt end Canada said,

There was one person who really wasn’t happy, regardless of what the situation was. Once things started getting uncomfortable and just weren’t going right, Randy said he wanted to go home and take care of his family. When Ragweed played our last show, Randy came up to me and said, ‘You know, my family isn’t 100 percent the reason for this. I just didn’t want the band to go out like that, which I knew.

It should be noted that at the annual Steamboat, Colo., Music Fest this year all but one member of the band showed up for the mini-reunion, Grady Cross. Canada went on to say,

There was one person who wasn’t happy from an artistic or business perspective. We decided that in order to press forward as individuals, we should just split it. I’ll just say that the person in question was uncomfortable, and it was time to move on. It’s not fun to play music when one person from the band isn’t into it.

If you’re a fan of Cross Canadian Ragweed, this article is a must-read. Or if your a fan of band drama, this article is a must read. Despite their breakup and regardless of who’s fault it was, the music they made will live on forever — I certainly don’t plan to ever stop listening to it or playing it on the radio.

In not so new news, former members of the legendary band, Canada and Jeremy Plato, have formed a new band The Departed and a national tour with Shooter Jennings has been announced. And Randy Ragsdale is now drummer number two for Stoney LaRue.

Peace Happiness Ragweed.
