About

The Wide Open features award winning duo Season Ammons and Allen Rayfield. Their distinctive style of soulful blues-infused vocals, swampy harmonica riffs, seductive organic harmonies and well-crafted lyrics with subtle R&B guitar grooves and greasy banjo licks lends itself to the new sound evolution that is AMERICANA MUSIC. Already gaining industry and critical acclaim, their highly anticipated sophomore album “Long Road Home” was released in January 2018. With rave reviews and lively shows on Good Day Austin and more, their latest single climbs the top 100 Texas Regional Radio Charts undoubtedly bringing The Wide Open into the hearts, minds and ears of Americana music fans everywhere! 

​ Crisscrossing the country in their 32-foot Winnebago armed with their blues-drenched Americana, the duo has discovered their calling––and fans of honest music are grateful for it.
