I am a HUGE fan of the show The Voice. I get so excited to hear the potential future stars. Even though many times my favorites don’t actually win the whole show. But more often, the artists I pick have gone on to have incredibly successful careers. Which is why I’m so excited to be featuring the Swon Brothers this week in Sounds of Sunday.
The Swon Brothers took full advantage of their exposure on The Voice to launch their carers, and became nominated for their first CMA Award for Duo of the Year. Their debut album is due to be realeased on October 14th, and their first single has already hit the airwaves and is rapidly climbing the charts! Not too shabby for a couple of unknown brothers from Oklahoma!
The new album is a collaborative effort in writing, as they reached out for rich material for their first album. ““We didn’t really have a formula,” Zach says, “but we picked songs that – while musically different – allow our harmonies to lay in perfectly. I think that’s what’s going to be the tie that binds everything together on this project.”
As I dive more and more in to the Country music genre, you can bet the Swon Brothers album will be the next new addition to my personal library!
