Country band Radio Romance brings a youthful, party-loving energy to the Nashville scene with upbeat, harmonic, and hook-friendly songs influenced by acts like Alabama , Eric Church , and Jason Aldean . The Hermitage, Tennessee band was formed in 2011 by Sam Hayes (vocals), Josh Gramling (guitar), and Moises Padilla (drums), three friends who had been honing their individual instruments from a young age. At first, the trio performed throughout Nashville as a cover band. Once they decided to take the leap as an official band, they took their moniker from Eddie Rabbitt ’s 1982 album of the same name. They issued their debut EP, What’s Stopping You (Treehouse), in 2014, following with the B-Sides collection in 2015.
After recruiting permanent bassist Adam Smithwick, the group released the singles “Secrets” and “Cheap Beer Years.” The quartet’s first EP together, Sounds of a Quiet Town (HYGB Records), arrived in 2017. That same year, Radio Romance received a big industry boost when they won the grand prize for the NASHNext competition, which included a deal with Big Machine Records, home to Taylor Swift , Midland , and Sugarland . Their first single for the label, “Weekend,” was released in 2018. The video for their single "Like The Moon" was voted #1 for 5 weeks in a row on the CMT 12 Pack Countdown. Their new single "Holding On" is available on all streaming platforms for pre-save now and will be out January 29th, 2021!
