The Guys From A Thousand Horses Are Ready to Show Band’s Evolution on Sophomore Album, “Bridges”

Southern rock has always been about horsepower, and the pedal is down in 2017 as the guys from A Thousand Horses get set to release their sophomore album, Bridges, on June 2. The new album comes almost two years to the date they dropped 2015’s Southernality, which featured the troupe’s breakout No. 1 hit, “Smoke.”

The band’s four founding fathers—Michael Hobby (lead vocals), Bill Satcher (lead guitar), Zach Brown (guitar and vocals) and Graham DeLoach (bass and vocals)—are hoping that the new 13-song album showcases their evolution over the last two years.

“I feel like we’ve grown a ton,” says frontman Michael Hobby, “I mean, we’ve been a band a long time. Southernality came out a few years ago, and we’ve been out on the road with these big heavy-hitters for the last two or three years, opening up for Jason Aldean or Thomas Rhett or Darius Rucker. So we’ve learned a lot from those guys, you know, and learning to play [stadiums] that we’ve never played . . . we did our first couple of stadium shows this past year. So you evolve as a musician and you evolve as a songwriter and a performer. We switched producers from Dave Cobb [Southernality] to Dan Huff, and it’s been absolutely incredible working with Dan, and we feel like we’re just kind of elevating our sound as a band to give the best product and the best show that we can out there on the road.”

Listen to A Thousand Horses’ lead single, “Preachin’ to the Choir,” from their upcoming album, Bridges.
