LOW COUNTRY SOUND/ELEKTRA RECORDS

Acclaimed country rock band A Thousand Horses have just released the brand new single, ‘Livin’ My Best Life‘. Watch/share the official music video HERE.

Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, ‘Livin’ My Best Life’ is the first track unveiled from the band’s forthcoming new album, which is set for release next year. The album is A Thousand Horses’ first project in partnership with Cobb’s Low Country Sound imprint at Elektra Records. Additional album details to be announced soon.

Of reuniting in the studio with Cobb, guitarist Zach Brown shares, Dave’s been a long-time supporter of the band. He’s always really believed in us and gets our vision, and always has. I mean, we named our band in his studio 10 years ago. It’s amazing this journey we’ve had with him.” Adds fellow guitarist Bill Satcher, “Dave is a brother. It’s great to get in there and make records with your friends. He is like an additional member of the band in that situation.”

The release of ‘Livin’ My Best Life’ adds to a series of breakout years for A Thousand Horses following their acclaimed full-length debut Southernality in 2015. The album’s lead single, ‘Smoke’, reached #1 on Billboard‘s Country Airplay chart, which made them the first group to top the chart with a debut single since Zac Brown Band’s ‘Chicken Fried’ in 2008.

Of the band, Rolling Stone praised, “country music’s new Lynyrd Skynyrd…a muscular mix of radio country and Southern rock,” while CMT declared, “stellar…the quartet is learning from the best, making records they believe in, being true to themselves, their artistry and making it happen.” Most recently, the band released 2017’s deluxe EP, Bridges, of which Sounds Like Nashville hailed, “showcases what A Thousand Horses do best with a mixture of heavy Southern rock influences and nostalgic country storytelling that will have listeners begging for more.”

Based in Nashville, TN, A Thousand Horses is Michael Hobby (vocals), Bill Satcher (guitar), Zach Brown (guitar) and Graham DeLoach (bass). Since their debut, the band has toured extensively across the world including dates supporting artists such as Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Gregg Allman and more. 2020 tour details to be announced soon.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
