“Tennessee” by Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors
I had the chance to see this Memphis-base band perform this song live when they opened for NEEDTOBREATHE on my college campus, and they absolutely took my breath away. To start, any band that is able to sound just as good, if not better, when they play live earns points in my book. The solid folk-rock sound is reminiscent of The Avett Brothers- who they also opened for- and captures the spirit of the South without being overly hokey. The vocal harmonies created by front-man Drew Holcomb and his wife are stellar and all of the musicians come together to create a rich, warm sound.
