Drag the River is an alt-country band hailing from Fort Collins, Colorado, United States. The band formed in 1996 when members Chad Price and Jon Snodgrass recorded 20 or so songs which were released as demos in 2000. All the members of the band come from a punk rock background. Price and ex-member Karl Alvarez have both been active in ALL since the 1990s. In 2002, J.J. Nobody of The Nobodys joined the band. Later, in 2004 Casey Prestwood of Hot Rod Circuit and Dave Barker of Pinhead Circus joined and picked up the steel & lead guitar, and drums, respectively. The band released the full length album called "It's Crazy" on June 6, 2006. The band was also nominated for best new song for "Modern Drunkard" by the Spanish magazine La Movida. The band took a brief hiatus in 2007, released "You Can't Live This Way" in 2008 and continues to play shows as a duo (Price & Snodgrass) and often as a full band.
