RHETT WALKER BAND SELECTED TO PARTNER WITH PEPSI MIDAMERICA ON MOUNTAIN DEW CAMO CAMPAIGN AND EXCLUSIVE RHETT NECK BBQ EXPERIENCE


Nashville, TN—Provident Label Group announces the Rhett Walker Band will release their sophomore album on Essential/Sony on October 14 titled HERE’S TO THE ONES, with a deluxe version also available, containing four additional bonus tracks. The Rhett Walker Band’s first single from the album, also titled “Here’s To the Ones,” will be released to country radio and is available on iTunes today. The group will embark on a national tour this week starting August 27 in Phillipi, West Virginia. 

Since the group released their debut album in 2012, COME TO THE RIVER, the Rhett Walker Band has toured non-stop, spending more time on the road than at home. The project generated the band’s first Top 10 hit, “When Mercy Found Me,” and garnered Walker a GRAMMY© nomination for penning the song. Since their inception, the band has been invited three times to perform on the Grand Ole Opry, and recently appeared on the show featuring new cuts from the forthcoming album. 

Their single, “Here’s To the Ones,” which also became the title track and theme of the album, is an All-American ode to the hard working middle class. Says Walker: “We wanted to write a song about people who stand up for what they believe in, and stand their ground, and aren’t afraid to run down a dream.” He continues: “There’s still men and women out there laying their lives on the line so we can have the freedom to chase down these dreams. They live for hope and peace and love and their families.” 

To connect with those everyday heroes, the Rhett Walker Band will partner with Pepsi MidAmerica in October and November as the featured artist for their Mountain Dew Camo Fall Promotion. Together, the band and Pepsi MidAmerica will also hold a contest throughout their territory titled the “Rhett Neck Nashville Experience.” Four winners and their guests will win a trip to Nashville to meet and spend time with the Rhett Walker Band, attend a barbeque at Rhett’s home, view a private concert with the band, and more.

The band – Rhett Walker (guitar), Kenny Davis (drums), Kevin Whitsett (bass) and Joe Kane (guitar) -- met in Nashville five years ago, drawn together by a collective love for music and a desire to pursue a career recording and touring. Their diverse influences—ranging from Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Marshall Tucker Band to Tonic and The Wallflowers—are interlaced into the 11 cuts on the new collection which include: Clone, Here’s To the Ones, Love Like Jesus, Adam’s Son, The Mystery, The Other Side, Amazed, Better Part of Me, Someone Else’s Song, Broken Man. The deluxe version of the album with the four additional bonus tracks, will feature a “Rhett Walker Band” take on Bachman Turner Overdrive’s “Takin’ Care of Business.”
