Cross Canadian Ragweed was an American Red Dirt/Americana/alternative rock/Texas Country/Southern rock band. The name of the band came from the combination of the original band members' names, Grady Cross (guitar), Cody Canada (guitar, vocals), Randy Ragsdale (drums), and original bassist Matt Wiedmann. Jeremy Plato's (bass) name was not involved in the band naming. The band was popular for its distinct sound that did not have a specific genre. Asleep at the Wheel's former frontman Ray Benson said in a 2010 Episode of The Texas Music Scene, "They (Ragweed) have proudly carried the Oklahoma Red Dirt banner for going on 15 years now, but make no mistake about it, these guys are a rock band."
Although the initials of the band are the same as Creedence Clearwater Revival, that is a mere coincidence. The name actually is a combination of the names of founding members Grady Cross, Cody Canada, Randy Ragsdale and Matt WiedemannЧитать далее в Википедии...
