Republic Nashville’s A Thousand horses has garnered quite a bit of buzz with their Southern rock flare, which is showcased on the smoldering “Smoke,” their debut single. The song debuted at #28 on Country Aircheck’s radio chart and it’s the highest debut ever for a brand new artist on their first single.
The band will release their debut album Southernality on June 9, 2015 via Republic Nashville. The album is up for PreOrder on iTunes.
“We are so overwhelmed by the positive response to the single and are so happy that radio is loving it,” said frontman Michael Hobby. “This past year has been crazy, in the best way possible, and we are looking forward to everyone to hearing the new album."
A Thousand Horses is comprised of Hobby, Bill Satcher (Lead Guitar), Zach Brown (Guitar and Vocal) and Graham Deloach (Bass and Vocal) with “three ‘boho-chic backup singers"– as Rolling Stone Country referred to Kristen Rogers, Whitney Coleman and Brianne Angarole – rounding out the nine-piece band with a Southern Gospel/R&B authenticity and confidence.
“After drawing raves for its set at the Austin City Limits Festival in October, the band may finally have found a home in the country-music scene,” praised USA Today.
