Now that we've announced A Thousand Horses will be performing at Countryfest 2015, it's time to learn a little more about the group.

A Thousand Horses is a southern Rock and Country-infused Nashville-based band. Comprised of frontman Michael Hobby, bassist Graham DeLoach with both Bill Satcher and Zach Brown on guitar, they blend a blue-collar mentality with contemporary sounds and lyrics that pay homage to the traditional values of the fly over states. A Thousand Horses celebrates the revival of roots Rock with their own Country flavor and are to be listened to loud … preferably with a drink in hand.

A Thousand Horses released a self-titled EP in 2010, gaining buzz with “Travelin’ Man” and “Suicide Eyes,” which was featured in the 2011 remake of "Footloose." In 2012, the band released a second EP, "Landslide," whose tracks showcased the band’s creative diversity with a range from effortlessly laid back to loud and infectious. The band has performed for audiences across the country, sharing the stage with artists such as Darius Rucker, Kip Moore and Blackberry Smoke as well as on two Simple Man Cruises hosted by Sixthman and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

In May 2014, A Thousand Horses signed a record deal with Republic Nashville and are gearing up to release their first single in addition to playing festivals and clubs across the country.
