Thanks to Dierks Bentley, I am familiar with two "Randy's" in the country music world. The first--Randy Rogers--opened for Dierks in Vegas in December 2006. I would have never known about the great music by RRB if it hadn't been for Dierks!

The other Randy--Randy Kohrs--has been showing up a lot lately! Country Weekly's September 7th issue reported, "The Randy Korhs Band has recovered most of the instruments and gear stolen from its van in Obetz, Ohio on July 25."

According to, Randy Kohrs is up for IBMA Dobro Player of the Year. That's significant because Kohrs can boast credits on DB's first album on What What I Thinkin'.

Kohrs has long been celebrated for his inventive, mood-setting work as a dobroist (that’s him providing the dramatic framework on Dierks Bentley’s No. 1 hit, “What Was I Thinking.”) But his flashes of instrumental wizardry have often diverted attention from his wider musicianship. Throughout his touring career, Kohrs has gained much success as a top Nashville session musician. To date, he has played on more than 500 albums…"

So let's do what the DB Congress does best--VOTE! Vote for Randy here for IBMA Dobro Player of the Year!

  1. I voted! I read about their instruments being stolen. Horrible! But atleast they have recovered most of their things.
