When Rolling Stone Country hailed A Thousand Horses as the best up-and-comer at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, it was the latest in a whole series of accolades that got the band even more fired up.

A Thousand Horses

Michael Hobby – Lead Vocal
Bill Satcher – Lead Guitar
Zach Brown – Guitar and Vocal
Graham Deloach – Bass and Vocal

The back story on how A Thousand Horses came together isn’t all that different from the
story of Alabama, a country band that defied genre convention when it introduced Skynyrd
and Creedence Clearwater Revival influences in another era. Satcher and Hobby went to
high school together in Newberry, South Carolina, and Satcher’s cousin, Deloach, dropped in from Savannah, Georgia, every summer. All three musicians bonded, and they began playing random dates. A friend eventually introduced them to Brown – who hails from Lawrenceville, Georgia – and A Thousand Horses became a full-fledged band.
