With opening slots for artists like Eric Paslay and Thompson Square, Crosstown Drive is no stranger to the big stage. Prompted by Tony Arata (writer of Garth Brooks hits like “The Dance” and “The River”) to get their songs on a demo CD in March of 2015, they hit the studio in late 2015.
In July of 2016 they released their first demo CD of 8 songs called “Test Drive”. That demo was mixed and mastered at 2twenty2 Studio in Nashville, TN with their friend Lee Turner who plays in Darius Rucker’s touring band.
Fast forward to today, and Crosstown Drive has a brand new batch of original material with releasing their first full length album, “Get in the Car” with Turner once again in the producer driving seat. Now Available On iTunes – https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/crosstown-drive/1423181215
