Nashville, Tenn. (February 1, 2023) — ACM-nominated country group 4Runner has returned to the music scene with “Ragged Angel,” a reimagined version of the song originally released in 2004. The tune marks 4Runner’s first new music release in almost 20 years. “Ragged Angel,” available via BFD/Audium Nashville, dropped last Friday (January 27) and is available for streaming / download now HERE.
“Kent Wells and Tony Smith produced this track,” explains 4Runner lead singer Craig Morris. “It’s a great, timely song. Just a killer track and our vocals are right where they need to be. We’ve re-mastered it with all the latest technology and it sounds better than ever. In the mid-90s there was no one who sounded like 4Runner and there is still no one who sounds like 4Runner.”
The new single from the band is but a taste of what’s to come. The group plans to announce the release a new full-length album in the coming weeks.
In 1993, four young musicians were looking for “the next big project” in which to commit their time, energy and talents. Lee Hilliard, Jim Chapman, Craig Morris and Billy Crittenden were those men, and 4Runner was born. The band signed their record deal with Polydor in 1995. The first single from their debut album was “Cain’s Blood.” The success of the single and others brought them national tours, opening for Tim McGraw, Kenny Rogers, Faith Hill and a musical guest slot on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. Four singles followed — “A Heart With 4-Wheel-Drive,” “Home Alone,” “Ripples” and “That Was Him, This Is Now” — all Top 40 charting singles. The band was nominated for “Top New Vocal Group” at the 1996 Academy of Country Music Awards and twice nominated for “Top Vocal Group” at the TNN/Music City News Awards. The group later disbanded because there were kids to raise, bills to pay and a roller coaster of life to ride. One of those “kids to raise” was Morris’ son, Sam, the group’s new baritone singer. 4Runner is back and hope fans enjoy the ride!
