When the LoCash Cowboys visited Renegade Radio Nashville last week (June 18) to debut their self-titled album live online, Renegade’s servers nearly crashed from the number of people streaming the event. “The extensive bandwidth by which we operate daily had to be increased to accommodate the added streams that were launched during the two-hour session,” said Renegade’s Joyce Aponte.
