Plenty of couples have “their” song. Nashville musicians Drew and Ellie Holcomb have a whole catalog. The couple met in Knoxville at the University of Tennessee, where their music…and their romance…took off in 2005.
A wedding, three children, dozens of albums, and countless tour dates later, both have formidable careers as solo artists, but they shine brightest together, performing with band Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors and scaling back to play as a duo, too. Garden & Sun asked them to share some of their favorite love songs, and they built a playlist that includes legends like Dolly Parton and Al Green alongside newcomers like Kacey Musgraves and Jason Isbell.
Drew and Ellie Holcomb released their “Electricity” EP on January 11, 2019 ahead of “The You & Me Tour: An Evening with Drew and Ellie Holcomb”, which continues to sell out around the country as the tour picks up tomorrow in Greenville, SC before setting its sights towards the West Coast next week. The EP features two new original songs, “Electricity,” “Love Anyway,” and a cover of Willie Nelson’s classic “On The Road Again.” (For full tour dates, see below.)
In addition, the Holcombs announced this week that they’d be performing a set at the 2019 installment of Moon River Music Festival presented by Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors, taking place at Chattanooga, TN’s Coolidge Park on September 8-9th. The festival, which Drew founded in 2014, will include headliners Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit and three-time Grammy Winner Brandi Carlile.
