(Vocal/instrumental group, 1999–present)

Leaning more towards pop, Jay DeMarcus (b. 1971) and Joe Don Rooney (b. 1975) already knew each other when they played a gig with Gary Levox (b. 1970), the second cousin of DeMarcus, and the trio – 2002 CMA Horizon Award winners – began. Songs like ‘Bless The Broken Road’ and ‘Fast Cars And Freedom’ have almost become mission statements and deliver music high on energy and radio playlist-friendly.
