Tobacco Rd Band"Rock This Truck" 2014

Tobacco Rd Band - Rock This Truck (2014)
The Tobacco Rd Band (TRB) is an American musical group that specializes in country-rock. The band, which is based in Tallahassee, Florida, consists of lead singer and songwriter Eric Durrance, lead guitarist Lex Vance, bass player Aaron Halford and drummer Joe Markham.

The Tobacco Rd Band was founded in 2010 by Eric Durrance, who had previously been the lead singer with the acclaimed Christian rock band Big Dismal, which Rolling Stone once named one of “Five Christian Bands on the Rise.”

After Big Dismal broke up, Durrance began performing solo, and was selected to tour with Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum as part of Country Music Television's “CMT on Tour” in 2008. Durrance later formed TRB with his friend, lead guitarist Lex Vance. With its hard-driving sound coupled with Durrance’s reputation from his years with Big Dismal, TRB quickly amassed a large fan base throughout the South.

In early 2012, TRB released its debut EP titled “Where the Girls Are,” which consisted of six tracks: “Where the Girls Are,” “Jesus & Guns,” “All About Me Today,” “There’s No Such Thing as Goodbye” and “Dear Life.” Shortly thereafter, the band released the single “That’s Country,” featuring a guest performance by Colt Ford, who also appears in the accompanying music video.

In the summer of 2013, Durrance became the first artist to sign with Silvercreek Records, a new label in Nashville, which was founded by two Nashville music industry veterans—songwriter Stafond Seago and songwriter, producer and plugger Steve Pope. The Tobacco Rd Band is currently working on its first album under the Silvercreek banner.
