Chart-topping band A Thousand Horses get back in the saddle with the release of “Preachin’ to the Choir.” The lead single from their sophomore project on BMLG Records features the Horses’ signature soul with standout vocals and harmonies, as Rolling Stone Country applauds, “’Preachin’ to the Choir’ is the Horses’ doctrine, a crisp blast of country-rock that extols the virtues of the 9 to 5.” The track is available now at all digital partners and ships to radio today. Get it here.
“We are excited to share the new music with fans and Country radio,” said lead vocalist Michael Hobby. “We have been away for a bit in the studio writing and recording but are now ready to get out there and perform the new stuff.”
Written by Heather Morgan, Morgan Wallen, Brad Warren and Brett Warren, “Preachin’ to the Choir” embodies A Thousand Horses’ Southern Rock roots and contemporary Country mix with lyrics like: “I ain’t rich, but I’m grateful / Every time I’m drivin’ with a tank full / ‘Simple Man’ comin’ through the dashboard speakers / I’m a southern rock sinner, believer and I’m preachin’ to the choir.” Hobby’s husky vocals are enhanced with Bill Satcher and Zach Brown on guitar and Graham Deloach on bass.
The new single is a fitting follow-up to their debut album SOUTHERNALITY, which featured their chart-topping single “Smoke.” The song marked the highest debut for a new artist’s first single in Country Aircheck history and solidified A Thousand Horses as the first band (with at least three members) to send their first single to No. 1 on Billboard Country Airplay Charts this decade.
A Thousand Horses will head to Austin on March 17 to perform at the Big Machine Label Group Showcase presented by TuneIn. The event begins at 8:30PM at Easy Tiger. The ACM New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year nominees will vie for the title at the 52nd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards airing live on CBS from Las Vegas on April 2.
