Republic Nashville announced yesterday the addition of A Thousand Horses to its stellar artist roster, which includes superstars Florida Georgia Line; Grammy-nominated acts The Band Perry and Eli Young Band as well as sizzling newcomer Cassadee Pope. The Nashville-based band, whose sound is a blues and booze infused cocktail of southern rock and country, is fronted by Michael Hobby with bassist Graham DeLoach in addition to both Bill Satcher and Zach Brown on guitar.
“I can not tell you how excited I am about signing A Thousand Horses. From the moment Scott McGhee played me the music over Christmas break I was hooked. Big things on the way!” said Jimmy Harnen, Republic Nashville President/Big Machine Label Group EVP.
A Thousand Horses has shared the stage with Darius Rucker, Kip Moore and Blackberry Smoke while recently performing on Simple Man Cruises hosted by Sixthman and Lynyrd Skynyrd. The high-energy trio’s independent release “Suicide Eyes” was featured in the 2011 remake of the movie FOOTLOOSE.
“We’re thrilled and excited to be part of the Big Machine Label Group family,” shares Hobby, A Thousand Horses lead singer. “We have an enormous amount of respect for the Republic Nashville team and are honored to be joining such a killer roster. Looking forward to what the future brings for A Thousand Horses!”
