BMLG Records hit makers A Thousand Horses return this summer with the release of their hot-and-heavy, live-focused project, Bridges.
Arriving June 2, the digital-only release will put a new spotlight on this road-tested band of brothers – Michael Hobby (lead vocals), Bill Satcher (lead guitar), Zach Brown (guitar), and Graham Deloach (bass). Bridges shows a new high point in their patented fusion of Southern rock and country soul, featuring six scorching new tracks and seven acoustic live renditions – including a captivating version of their breakout smash, “Smoke.”
Lead single “Preachin’ to the Choir” is already climbing at Country radio and earning rave critical reviews. A laid back, lighters-in-the-air anthem, the summertime rocker is all about living life for good times andSaturday nights – and surrounding yourself with people who do the same.
Bridges was jointly produced by studio aces Corey Crowder and Dann Huff, with the band calling their own shots on each of the seven live tracks. Determined to set those live tracks apart from the rest, six were recorded “Live to Vinyl” at London’s Metropolis Studios and “Smoke” filled the air of Nashville’s famous Printer’s Alley.
Featuring titles like “Blaze of Somethin’,” “Burn Like Willie” and “Weekends In a Small Town,” the four band members were joined by in-demand co-writers like Ross Copperman, Ryan Hurd, The Cadillac Three’s Jaren Johnston, Heather Morgan, Josh Osborne, and the Warren Brothers.
BRIDGES follows A Thousand Horses’ 2015 breakout album, SOUTHERNALITY, a Top 5 hit that features the GOLD-certified #1 debut “Smoke.”
Meanwhile, the band will continue on with their loud-and-proud ways this summer, embarking on a jam-packed tour schedule of headlining shows and major festivals like CMA Music Festival and Country Stampede.
