Nashville, Tenn. (Oct. 23, 2014) - In support of the launch of Rhett Walker Band's latest release HERE'S TO THE ONES, which released last week on Essential/Sony, the Gospel Music Association is featuring the band in its "New Music Showcase" on October 28 at 7:00 p.m. CT. The live streaming event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Shamblin Theater at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn. For those outside of Music City, fans can tune in to watch the concert live at www.hearitfirst.com/live.

Additionally, HERE'S TO THE ONES has been a top 5 selling album on the Soundscan Digital Album Chart in its first week, peaking at No. 1 on iTunes®' Christian Chart.

Continuing onto their road of success, the Rhett Walker Band will make their national television debut with a performance on HUCKABEE on January 17, 2015, on FOX News Channel. Leading up to their appearance, the band can be seen in various publications such as Huffington Post, Parade.com, CMA Closeup, Examiner.com, HNGN.com and more.

The title track of the album serves as the overall theme for HERE'S TO THE ONES: an all-American ode to the hard working middle class. To connect with those everyday heroes, the Rhett Walker Band has partnered with Pepsi MidAmerica this month, and in November, as the featured artist for their Mountain Dew Camo Fall Promotion. The band and Pepsi MidAmerica will also hold a contest throughout their territory titled the "Rhett Neck Nashville Experience." On May 16, 2015, eight lucky winners will be chosen and win a trip to Nashville to meet and spend time with the Rhett Walker Band, attend a barbeque at Rhett's home, view a private concert with the band, and more.

Since their 2012 debut, the Rhett Walker Band has toured non-stop with everyone from MercyMe to Newsboys, spending more time on the road than at home. The project generated the band's first Top 10 hit, "When Mercy Found Me," which garnered Walker a GRAMMY© nomination for CCM Song of the Year. The group also received three 2013 Dove nominations in multiple categories including New Artist of the Year, Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year and Rock/Contemporary Song of the Year. Since their inception, they have been invited three times to perform on the Grand Ole Opry, and recently appeared on the show featuring new cuts from the latest release.

The band - Rhett Walker (guitar), Kenny Davis (drums), Kevin Whitsett (bass) and Joe Kane (guitar) -- met in Nashville five years ago, drawn together by a collective love for music and a desire to pursue a career recording and touring. Their diverse influences are interlaced into the 11 cuts on the new collection which include: "Clone," "Here's To the Ones," "Love Like Jesus," "Adam's Son," "The Mystery," "The Other Side," "Amazed," "Better Part of Me," "Someone Else's Song," and "Broken Man." The deluxe version of the album includes four additional bonus tracks, featuring a Rhett Walker Band take on Bachman Turner Overdrive's "Takin' Care of Business."
