Welcome to Roughshod Records, a small Independent Country Music Label dedicated to keepin' that traditional country sound alive since 1987! Eight Cassettes and 50 CDs later we're still running and constantly working on producing exciting new songs that will have your toes tapping and warm you up from the inside out!
Mike Johnson, Country Music's No.1 Black Yodeler, is still at the helm, and onboard since August 2012, and breathing new life into the label, is James Adelsberger our recording artist, studio engineer, and co-producer. Our talented musician is also a published composer, songwriter, BMI songwriter member, owner of J. A. Music Publishing and a member of the National Traditional Country Music Association.
On 31 August 2015 the Rural Roots Music Commission presented James with the "Pure Country CD of the Year" Award for his CD "Old Time Country Songs Are They Really Dead and Gone?" at the 40th Old Time Country Music Festival in LeMars, Iowa.
On 7 May 2016 at a Roughshod Records SideKicks Show which featured James as the Special Guest Performer, Mike Johnson also had the added pleasure of introducing James Adelsberger as the new co-owner of Roughshod Records!
Hang onto your hats, it's gonna be an exciting ride!
Joe Arnold, Manager, Roughshod Records
