Rugged Grace is the modern day red dirt Johnny and June duo from Oklahoma. JD and Lexie having been playing music together for 3 years touring Oklahoma and the surrounding states. JD and Lexie met while working at a psychiatric hospital for children. They found they not only had a passion for helping sick children, but also for writing and playing music. JD and Lexie began their musical journey in front a small audience of family and friends at Eufaula Lake singing "Whenever You Come Around" by Vince Gill. There was no debate after that night if they wanted to pursue music as a career, rather than just entertaining family and friends.
