Tobacco Rd Band to Celebrate Newly-Minted Record Deal with Show at Honky Tonk Central, 9/21
Rolling Stone-recognized singer/songwriter Eric Durrance and his Tobacco Rd Band (TRB) will rock Nashville deep-Southern style, with a free concert and party at Honky Tonk Central on Saturday, September 21. The show will help kick off Music City USA's newest independent record label, Silvercreek Records, which is sponsoring the event along with Coors Light. Admission will be first-come, first-served.
"We're excited about being Silvercreek's first push," Durrance said. "They want to make an impression in Nashville, and so do we. They were willing to accept us as for who we are, and not try to change us. Together, I think we can make things happen."
The Tobacco Rd Band is already working on their first album under the Silvercreek banner, while continuing to promote their recent release, "That's Country," featuring Colt Ford (Average Joe's Entertainment). Durrance also co-wrote Jake Owen's hit "8 Second Ride," which the long-time friends recently performed together to a packed house at the Leon County Civic Center in Durrance's hometown of Tallahassee, Florida.
The Tobacco Rd Band, which has attracted a loyal concert following since forming in 2011, is best-known for the singles "Coming Back Around," "Jesus and Guns" and "Boom." Before forming TRB, Durrance toured as a solo act with Lady Antebellum and Jason Aldean as part of "CMT on Tour" in 2008. Prior to that, he was lead singer with the acclaimed Christian rock band Big Dismal, whichRolling Stone recognized as one of "Five Christian Bands on the Rise." With Tobacco Rd Band, Durrance has returned to his secular roots, combining classic country with high-energy, hard-partying Southern rock.
