Delta Rae was a relatively new and still-evolving band when they joined OurStage and earned the opportunity to open for Hanson way back in 2010. Since then, they’ve blown up to headlining status, signed a record deal, and are now releasing their second full-length album, After It All. This LP showcases an increasingly rare thing – a band that came together organically, and was given time and room to grow into a unique hybrid of roots-pop, with their classic rock influences shining through a meticulously modern production.

Longtime friends of OurStage Delta Rae have been added to the Chesterfield, VA Ragtime Carnival, featuring Carbon Leaf, Keller Williams, Edwin McCain, Eddie From Ohio, and a ton more.

When the 2014 Grammys air this Sunday, we’ll be treated to yet another all-star jam, but this one holds promise. It’s an FOD (friends of Dave) free for all, featuring many of the players from Dave Grohl‘s Sound City film, including Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, Fleetwood Mac‘s Lindsey Buckingham, and longtime Grohl pals Queens of the Stone Age, all of them nominated in some way for awards this year (Buckingham’s collaboration with Delta Rae, “If I Loved You,” earned a nomination for producer Rob Cavallo).
Coupled with the not-earth-shattering-but-still-pretty-cool treat of seeing Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr play together again, this might just make an interesting telecast. The Grohl jam will close out the show. Maybe Macca and Ringo will jump up there, who knows? Follow us on Twitter to catch a live-tweeting of events as they unfold on Sunday night.

OurStage band Delta Rae have come a long way since opening for Hanson as the winners of the “Shout It Out with HANSON” Competition in 2010. Not that Delta Rae were unskilled amateurs back then “ Isaac Hanson said that his band should have been opening for them instead “ but since nabbing that gig, Delta Rae signed a major label deal with Sire Records, were booked to play at this year’s Democratic National Convention, and were featured in the Rolling Stone “Women Who Rock” Competition. Not bad for just two years. We recently caught up with the band to talk about their recent activity, their inventive music videos, and how opening up for Hanson boosted their burgeoning career.
