Album: Yet To Be Titled (2014)

  • Lyrics
  • The Nashville-based band Natalie Stovall and the Drive is is fronted by Stovall, a fiddle player who started performing at the age of ten and made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry just two years later singing Mary-Chapin Carpenter's "Down At The Twist And Shout." At the age of 16, Stovall landed a spot on Oprah performing her fiddle tricks live on one of the host's 'funniest viewers' shows.
  • This is the debut single from the band, which as well as Stovall, also comprises guitarist Miguel Cancino, bassist Zach Morse, guitarist and vocalist Joel Dormer, and drummer James Bavendam. Stovall recalled in a video how she recruited the group after meeting Bavendam at the Berklee College of Music. "When we met I told him that I was a country singer and he said, 'Oh! I'm a country drummer!'" said the fiddle player. "One night in the dorm room he just said 'Well, why don't you have your own band?' and I thought 'Man, why don't I have my own band?' And so we put a band together and played a whole lot of gigs."

    The pair began working on putting together the rest of the band after graduating from Berklee college and moving back to Nashville, using Craigslist and referrals from friends. "We kind of all found that right combination of personalities, and I think that's one of the reasons that this band works so well together," said Stovall.
