      Bio

      Emerson Drive hit the airwaves hard with their debut single, "I Should Be Sleeping" in 2001, and have been at the top of the country charts ever since. Emerson Drive tour dates are currently scheduled throughout North America this Summer, 2011.

      The band has its origins in Alberta, Canada when they were originally known as 12 Gauge. Original member Brad Mates, entered and won a talent contest in high school and decided to start a band after his success. He soon recruited bandmates, began practicing in his basement, and hit the road in Canada. The band eventually charted two singles in Canada including the top 40 track "Some Trains Never Come". Although they found some success in Canada, the bandmates moved to Nashville in order to hit the American country scene. After some line-up changes and a name change to Emerson Drive, they were eventually picked up by DreamWorks Records in 2000. The band teamed up with famed '80s pop-star, Richard Marx, to produce their self-titled debut album and released the single "I Should Be Sleeping" in November, 2001. The single was a top five hit for the group and the album debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. The follow-up single "Fall Into Me", was also produced by Richard Marx and was an even bigger hit for the group.

      Following the huge success of their American debut, the band decided to repeat the successful formula and asked for Marx's help to produce the sophomore album. While in the studio with Marx, Emerson Drive concert dates were booked on Shania Twain's high profile "Up! Tour". The gig with Shania kept the band on the road for nearly a year and they were finally able to release their second album in 2004. Although they were able to find some success in Canada, the album faltered in the US and Emerson Drive was dropped from DreamWorks in the same year.

      The guys weren't deterred and they were eventually picked up by Midas Records Nashville. The band brought in veteran country hit-maker, Josh Leo, to produce their third American album, "Countrified". What they created in the studio was nothing short of magic, and they suddenly found themselves in the #1 spot of the Billboard Country Songs survey. The album's second single, "Moments" made history when it hit #1 on the country charts. Emerson Drive became the first Canadian country band to have a number one single on the American country charts. The single also garnered the band their first Grammy nod for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

      The group suffered tragedy and setbacks following their huge commercial and critical success. The band's bassist was found dead in his Montreal home months after resigning from the band in 2007. In 2009, the band's fourth album "Believe", was shelved in the United States due to a dispute with their record label. "Believe" managed to debut in the top ten of the Canadian charts, and the band hopes to release it sometime in 2011 on their new label. In 2011, they signed with Quarterback Records to release their current single "Let Your Love Speak", in February. They have also released a greatest hits album entitled "Decade of Drive". In support of the album, Emerson Drive tour dates are currently scheduled across North America. Use Eventful as your source for Emerson Drive concert dates and venue information.
