ABOUT A THOUSAND HORSES: Dubbed “Country’s coolest band” by Rolling Stone Country, A Thousand Horses delivers an authentic fusion of Southern rock and contemporary Country mixed with rowdy jams.Their new 13-track project BRIDGES isset for digital release on June 2 and features their chart-rising single “Preachin’ to the Choir” along with seven acoustic tracks, six of which were recorded live in the U.K. at the famed Metropolis Studios. “Preaching’ to the Choir” is quickly becoming the working-man’s anthem and follows their successful debut single “Smoke.” The chart-topping track made Country Aircheck history as the highest debut for a new artist and solidified the band (with at least three members) as the first this decade to score a No. 1 with their first single on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart. A Thousand Horses have scored multiple award show nominations, most recently vying for the title of ACM New Vocal Duo or Group at the 52nd Annual ACM Awards. The band’s first album on BMLG Records, SOUTHERNALITY, blends Southern Rock and influential sounds of The Black Crowes and Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main Street era. The talented foursome soars with Michael Hobby on lead vocals as Bill Satcher and Zach Brown on guitar and Graham Deloach on bass round out their unique grooves. A Thousand Horses headlined a string of shows in the U.K. last fall and have previously toured with Jason Aldean on his wildly successful SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR. They will hit the road this summer for multiple festivals including CMA Music Fest on June 10 and headline shows across the country. For more information and tour dates, visit AThousandHorses.com.
