Emerson Drive came from Canada in 2001 and their most recent album, Countrified, on Midas Records, was released in August 2006. The band has come a long way from their first self-titled release in 2002. That album led to numerous awards for the group including Top New Vocal Group/Duo from the Academy of Country Music; Billboard’s #1 Top Country Artist of the Year; R&R’s #1 New Artist MVP; Group of the Year for two years in a row, from the Canadian Country Music Association and two top five hits, Fall Into Me and I Should Be Sleeping. Most recently, Emerson Drive was honored with spots in the Canadian Country Music Association’s All Star Band. In June 2004, they released their second album on DreamWorks, What If.
