Rising country music trio Temecula Road, comprised of sisters Emma (vocals/mandolin) and Maddie (vocals) Salute together with guitarist and longtime friend Dawson Anderson (vocals/guitar), have already amassed a sizeable and loyal fanbase thanks to their immaculate harmonies and infectious, youthful energy. With talent far beyond their teenage years, Temecula Road has an impressive online following with their series of song covers.
Named after the California town where they grew up, the trio signed to Buena Vista Records earlier this year and released their first single/video, “What If I Kissed You” (written by Jimmy Robbins, Sara Haze and Mike Daly) on February 17th. Adding to the 2017 excitement, Radio Disney named them their NEXT BIG THING artist, putting them in great company, as previously featured acts include Shawn Mendes, Fifth Harmony and fellow country artist Kelsea Ballerini. The trio recently released their second single, “Hoping,” in advance of their performances at this year’s CMA Music Festival in Nashville.
Called out by The Huffington Post as one of the top country artists to watch in 2016, Temecula Road spent the year opening for Martina McBride, Josh Turner, Joe Nichols, Sara Evans, Eli Young Band and Love And Theft and joined Jessie James Decker on a nationwide, sold out tour. Their covers have earned praise from Carrie Underwood, Brett Eldredge, Dan + Shay, Cam, and RaeLynn. The group is featured weekly on Radio Disney Country’s social media giving fans a behind the scenes look at their lives as musicians on #TemeculaRoadTuesdays and performed at this year’s C2C Country Music Festival.
