Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors is an American rock band, led by singer/songwriter Hampton Andrew "Drew" Holcomb, Jr.[1][2][3] (born May 13, 1982)[4] The band is based in East Nashville, Tennessee and also includes Holcomb's wife Ellie.

Holcomb earned a considerable following after his 2005 album, Washed in Blue, had multiple TV placements on Lifetime's Army Wives[5] Showtime's United States of Tara,[6] and A&E's The Cleaner.


Holcomb has gained most of his following with a heavy touring schedule, headlining regionally in the Southeast, and opening for national acts such as Susan Tedeschi, Ryan Adams,[7] Los Lobos, Jon McLaughlin, The Avett Brothers, Robert Earl Keen,[8] Marc Broussard, Dave Barnes, and Matt Hires.

Holcomb was featured on Paste Magazine‍ '​s November 2009 Sampler CD.[9] In the fall of 2009, Holcomb appeared alongside Pat Green, Billy Joe Shaver, and Darryl Worley on the TV show Legends and Lyrics.[10]

Holcomb's 2011 album Chasing Someday, produced by Andy Hunt at his East Nashville Wide Studios, debuted at number 182 on the Billboard 200 for the week ending February 26, 2011.[11]

Drew and his wife Ellie are both involved in Nashville YoungLife and have played at various YoungLife camp locations across the United States during the summer sessions. They are expecting their second child in July 2015.

Holcomb's song "Live Forever", released in 2009, was prominently featured in a commercial preview of the NBA's 2011-12 season.[12][13] It was also used in promos for the series finale of House M.D. In January 2013, his song, "What Would I do Without You", was featured on "How I Met Your Mother" in season 8, episode 14, titled "Ring Up!"[14]

Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors released their fourth album Good Light on February 19, 2013 on Good Time Records. The album features twelve songs, including the popular single "Tennessee", and was released following Holcomb's 30th birthday and the birth of his first child, daughter Emmylou. The band continues to tour, including a performance at Bonnaroo in June 2013.

Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors will be touring with Needtobreathe, Ben Rector (leg 1), Switchfoot (leg2), and Colony House (band) for the 2015 "Tour De Compadres" tour.[15]
