ABOUT KING CALAWAY:
One of country music’s rapidly rising bands, King Calaway is proof that there’s strength in numbers. Their debut album, Rivers, released October 2019 on BBR Music Group/Stoney Creek Records, featured the hit single “World For Two,” which was the #1 most added song at country radio in its debut week. Named as one of the seven new country acts to watch out for by Billboard, the band continued to take the country music industry by storm from multiple performances at the famed Grand Ole Opry – including an incredible performance moment with the legendary Ricky Skaggs – to making their late-night television performance debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and an appearance on the internationally acclaimed show Neighbours. They have also performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden, TODAY and The Kelly Clarkson Show. They’ve since brought their energetic live show to various stages, including a CMA Fest debut and opening slots for Rascal Flatts and Garth Brooks. Building on this momentum, the accomplished musicians have spent the past year honing their craft as singer-songwriter instrumentalists and have emerged with a brand-new modern country sound. The now 5-piece band is comprised of Caleb Miller, Chris Deaton, Simon Dumas, Chad Michael Jervis, and Austin Luther and their new EP, Midnight, was released on August 27th.
