A Thousand Horses at the Historic Newberry Opera House
Friday, May 5 @ 8:00 pm$20 – $30.00
Newberry is home to the historic Newberry Opera House, where performers from all over the world take center stage in Lake Murray Country!
A Thousand Horses made history in June 2015, when the band’s song, “Smoke” became the first debut single for a group to reach #1 on the Country Airplay charts in the 2010s. The song went platinum, with the follow-up hit “(This Ain’t No) Drunk Dial” also cracking Top 40 success. Both singles appeared on their debut album, Southernality, which reached #3 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
Over the years that followed, bandmates Michael Hobby, Bill Satcher, and Graham DeLoach found similar success on the road, touring the country with acts like Darius Rucker and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Reclaiming their independence in 2022, A Thousand Horses has now launched a new chapter in their career with an applauded sophomore album, Broken Heartland, released via their own label Highway Sound Records.
