Michael Hobby and Bill Satcher grew up in Newberry, South Carolina, where they began writing songs at the age of 15. Satcher’s cousin and Savannah, GA native, Graham DeLoach, joined the duo soon after. A friend eventually introduced Atlanta native Zach Brown, and A Thousand Horses was formed. The name “A Thousand Horses” came from a song on their first EP. They enjoy writing their own original songs, but they occasionally collaborate with other writers around Nashville. They have toured nationwide and released their full-length album, Southernality, on January 21, 2015. In 2016, they played at the Carolina Country Music Festival in Myrtle Beach, SC.
