TEMECULA ROAD MAKES GRAND OLE OPRY DEBUT
Nashville, TN — November 4, 2019 — Rising country trio TEMECULA ROAD made their Grand Ole Opry debut on Friday, November 1 at the first weekend of the show’s annual winter run of Opry At The Ryman in downtown Nashville. Maddie, Emma, and Dawson, introduced by Connie Smith, brought their unforgettable harmonies to the iconic stage. Performing their latest single “Maybe Not” and a stripped-down acoustic version of the Eagles classic “Desperado,” their debut brought a packed house of family, friends, and fans to their feet for a standing ovation. “Tonight has been a dream come true,” says Emma. “We feel so very blessed,” says Maddie. “I am speechless, and that doesn’t happen very often. What an amazing night,” adds Dawson. Emma, Maddie, and Dawson took the Ryman stage fresh off of an overseas tour stint with Scotty McCreery, including sold out stops in Berlin, Cologne, London, and Manchester. Their soulful new track “Maybe Not,” written by the trio’s Dawson Anderson, along with Trannie Anderson and Ian Christian and produced by Andrew DeRoberts (Devin Dawson, Kip Moore, Eli Young Band, Jillian Jacqueline), is their third new release this year, following “Fades” and “Never Knew I Needed You” which hit Top 5 and Top 15 respectively on Radio Disney Country’s Top 50 Chart. To celebrate their Opry debut, Temecula Road released a stripped version of their “harmony rich tune,” “Maybe Not,” – named a “Song You Need To Hear” by The Boot - via YouTube. Watch HERE.
