A Thousand Horses splashed onto the scene with “Smoke” and made it clear they’re not going anywhere anytime soon.
“This Ain’t No Drunk Dial” is their sophomore single and once again, they do not disappoint. “This Ain’t No Drunk Dial” is a story about a guy who doesn’t want to let go of his girl just yet. He calls her up and says “I’ll take whatever blame you want me to, we don’t even have to talk about any of the stuff that happened, just leave the door open and I’ll be there.” He’s drank a few but wants to assure her “This Ain’t No Drunk Dial,” a very interesting spin on the usual cliché.
A Thousand Horses spoils you with vocals like nothing else on the radio right now. The words “Distinctive” and “addictive” have become their tagline. From the vivid tapestry woven to the whoa-oa-oa’s you won’t be able to do anything but turn this song up and leave it on repeat. This ain’t no drunk dial either, Thousand Horses because I’m swooning just listening to you. Co-written by lead vocalist Michael Hobby, Justin Crowder, Neil D. Mason and Cale Dodds, the story’s as good as the vocals and the instrumentals, all working together to craft a piece of music like you’ve never heard before.
A Thousand Horses will be increasingly successful jetting up the charts more than they already have if this is the material they’re going to consistently put out. It is without a doubt, one of the most unique and craveable sounds coming out of Nashville right now and I for one, absolutely cannot wait for more.
A Thousand Horses will be on tour all over the U.S. from now until October with their own headlining shows as well as on Darius Rucker’s Southern Style Tour, so be sure to catch a show!
