Considering they’ve only been in the public gaze for a couple of years now A Thousand Horses already sound like the real thing and look like contenders, though they’ll tell you they’re just work in progress. Their debut self-titled EP and the first album Southernality – think Southern/Personality – are full of strong narrative songs that have been composed within the group. Michael Hobby handles the lead vocals but Zach Brown, Graham DeLoach and Bill Satcher complete a quartet of harmonised delight. Very much cast in the modern country idiom but with an eye on the classic past they’ve hit big with the singles “Smoke” (a country airplay number one in June 2015), “(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial” and the title track “Southernality”. All chime with a like-minded audience who have no doubt grown up listening to the band’s own heroes – the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tom Petty, The Black Crowes and those Anglo bands who perfected hardcore rootsy blues with plenty of swagger back in the 1970s. Nominated for an ACM, Southernality made it into the Top 40 Country Albums of 2105 by Rolling Stone while “Smoke” also made it into their Top 25 songs of the year. The folks at Whiskey Riff followed suit, praising the band’s fresh approach and comparing them favourably to Skynyrd and The Cadillac Three. The old and the new gallop along in their sound.
