The Rugged is our “Featured Artist” this week. Each morning at 7:45 AM our volunteer disc jockey will play a cut from their new album (“Down & Purty”) and will then give away a FREE compact disc to a lucky listener. The band’s upcoming shows are listed below.
The Rugged hail from the hills of Jackson, Maine. Cody Tibbetts, Tim Valliere ( Val-yer) and Travis Lloyd met at Morse Memorial Elementary School in Brooks. They played in Various groups around the state and beyond over the years and eventually formed the trio in 2011. “Down and Purty” is their 3rd full length album.
