Music career[edit]

The band was founded in 2015. After meeting record producer Jay Joyce at a Keith Urban concert, they signed to his publishing company, and then to Arista Nashville.[4] Through the label, they released their debut four-song EP, titled Extended Play on April 15, 2016.[5] They also released their first single from the album, "Long Live Tonight", and another one of their songs, "Greatest Love Story", appears in the Netflix series The Ranch.[6] "Greatest Love Story" reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts at the end of 2017.
