Borderland Americana
"music from the fringes"

Welcome to the internet home of Bittersweet Highway and County Road Records!  So glad you've found us! 

We are Rene' Janiece and Wayne McKinzie - a singer-songwriter duo
living on the fringes of Southern Colorado and Northern New Mexico.

Here, you'll find background on who we are and how we got started - as well as what we might be up to next.

Check out our music page to download our albums, individual songs,
or to order a physical copy of our new EP - It All Falls Away.

We hope you visit often for updates on events, videos, photos, new song demos,
and information on how to bring us to a venue near you!

This is the place for all-around updates as we wander this road.
