A Thousand Horses Evolve with Bridges

Country Rockers Talk Sophomore Album, the Magic of Nashville and the late Gregg Allman

Sophomore jitters do not apply to country-rock and blues phenomenon A Thousand Horses.

Members Zach Brown, Graham DeLoach, Michael Hobby and Bill Satcher release their second album Bridges today (June 2), a deluxe EP if you will, with six brand new songs, six live versions recorded in London and a killer version of their No. 1 smash “Smoke” tracked in Nashville’s famed Printer’s Alley.

Their debut Southernality was a stellar introduction — so good that it could have very well created a pressure-cooker situation for the guys as they went in to record their second album.

But front man Hobby told CMT.com a little bit of pressure never hurt anybody — it can sometimes be a good thing.

“I think it’s a healthy kind of pressure, when you’re writing new music and recording it, and we kind of we put that on ourselves,” Hobby said. “You want to put out great stuff that you’re proud of that’s real. You’re telling your stories when you write it.”
