Produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, “Livin’ My Best Life” is the first track unveiled from the band’s forthcoming new album, which is set for release next year. The album is A Thousand Horses’ first project in partnership with Cobb’s Low Country Sound imprint at Elektra Records. Additional album details to be announced soon.
Of reuniting in the studio with Cobb, guitarist Zach Brown shares, “Dave’s been a long-time supporter of the band. He’s always really believed in us and gets our vision, and always has. I mean, we named our band in his studio 10 years ago. It’s amazing this journey we’ve had with him.” Adds fellow guitarist Bill Satcher, “Dave is a brother. It’s great to get in there and make records with your friends. He is like an additional member of the band in that situation.”
The release of “Livin’ My Best Life” adds to a series of breakout years for A Thousand Horses following their acclaimed full-length debut Southernality in 2015. The album’s lead single, “Smoke,” reached #1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart, which made them the first group to top the chart with a debut single since Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried” in 2008. Of the band, Rolling Stone praised, “country music’s new Lynyrd Skynyrd…a muscular mix of radio country and Southern rock,” while CMT declared, “stellar…the quartet is learning from the best, making records they believe in, being true to themselves, their artistry and making it happen.” Most recently, the band released 2017’s deluxe EP, Bridges, of which Sounds Like Nashville hailed, “showcases what A Thousand Horses do best with a mixture of heavy Southern rock influences and nostalgic country storytelling that will have listeners begging for more.”
