Tobacco Rd Band Signs with Nashville Record Label Silvercreek Records

Singer/songwriter Eric Durrance and his Tobacco Rd Band have signed with Silvercreek Records, a new independent label with offices on Nashville's Music Row, formed by country music veterans Stafond Seago and Steve Pope. The deal includes shared publishing rights to many of Durrance's songs, including his recent single "That's Country," featuring Colt Ford (Average Joe's Entertainment).

"We're excited to be working with Eric Durrance," said Seago, president and CEO of Silvercreek Records. "He's an incredibly versatile songwriter, and just as great a singer. A lot of folks in Nashville want to collaborate with him, so we're honored to have him on our team."

Tobacco Rd Band, which has amassed a loyal concert following since forming in 2011, is best-known for the singles "Coming Back Around," "Jesus and Guns" and "Boom." The band's name was inspired by the road just outside Tallahassee, Florida, where Durrance used to party with friends, including country star Jake Owen, whose current hit single, "8 Second Ride," Durrance co-wrote.

"I met Jake when he was a student at Florida State University," Durrance said. "We spent a lot of time working together in my stepfather's recording studio before he went to Nashville."

As a solo artist, Durrance opened for Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean for "CMT on Tour" in 2008. Prior to that, he was lead singer with the acclaimed Christian rock band Big Dismal, which Rolling Stone named one of "Five Christian Bands on the Rise" in 2003. With Tobacco Rd Band, Durrance has returned to his musical roots, melding classic country with high-energy, hard-partying Southern rock.
