I heard the name of this young trio and knew the first word was familiar. After doing my homework, I found they were practically neighbors here in Southern California since they named themselves after the city they are from. Temecula, California is not only known now for this trio, but is also in prestigious wine country. Hence Temecula Road was a perfect fit.
The trio, comprised of sisters Emma and Maddie Salute and longtime friend Dawson Anderson spent last 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 was named one of Radio Disney’s NEXT BIG THING artists and was nominated in the “The Freshest! – Radio Disney Country Best New Artist” category at this year’s Radio Disney Music Awards, putting them in great company alongside Lauren Alaina, Maren Morris, Old Dominion and RaeLynn in the category.
The current single, “Hoping” (written by Jimmy Robbins, Heather Morgan, Mike Daly) is a fun and light summer romp featuring Temecula Road’s trademark harmonies and available on iTunes. The song is the perfect follow-up to the trio’s debut song, “What If I Kissed You,” which has already been streamed over 1 million times. They were honored this year to perform at the C2C Country Music Festival in London and made their debut at the iconic Stagecoach Music Festival in Indio, CA.
This year at CMA Fest they had a very busy schedule but being practically neighbors here in California we surely wanted to give them a touch of home by saying HI. Enjoy our visit and find out why others felt that in 2016 they were the trio to watch for.
