From Basement Practice to Top Spot

Published On October 27, 2018 | By Jeff Norgate | Blogs, Jeff Norgate

While still in high school, five guys got together to form a band.  They called themselves 12 Gauge.  They were practicing in the basement of one of the members’ homes and entered a ‘battle of the bands’ contest in Grande Prairie, Alberta.  They won the opportunity to write and record an EP.  They wasted no time and took full advantage.  In 1998, their song, “Some Trains Never Come”, became a top 40 hit.

The guys moved to Nashville and had to change their name.  They settled on ‘Emerson Drive’.

They opened most of the shows for Shania Twain’s ‘Up!’ tour, and in 2008, scored a number one hit with “Moments”.

Join me next Saturday, November 3 at 9:20, for more with Emerson Drive!
