Patchogue - Rising country group Natalie Stovall and The Drive sat down and chatted with me after their show at The Emporium in Patchogue, New York, on April 15.
It is made up of Natalie Stovall on lead vocals and fiddle, Miguel Cancino on guitar, Zach Morse on bass, Joel Dormer on guitar and vocals, as well as James Bavendam on drums. The group shared that their musical tastes are quite eclectic, but they all consider Garth Brooks, Shania Twain, Michael Jackson and Aerosmith as their greatest musical influences.
They opened for such country stars as Chase Rice and Sara Evans. "This is awesome," Natalie exclaimed. "I has been a huge fan of Sara's for years. It is such an honor and a privilege to open for artists we look up to."
Natalie Stovall and The Drive covered the Charlie Daniels classic "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" during their set, and they praised the Patchogue crowd for being "awesome" and "electric." "It was a great show and we had a good time," drummer James added. "We feed off the energy and that makes it really fun. We do everything we can to live up to the fans' support."
Their newest single "Baby Come On with It" is already a Top 45 hit on the Billboard Hot Country Airplay charts, and climbing. "That is both crazy and amazing. It is moving up one step at a time. It is great to see 9 years of hard work pay off," Natalie stated. "We found that song instantly relatable and we wanted to have a song that captures us on stage."
On May 6, they will be making their debut on the hallowed Grand Ole Opry stage, which they are really looking forward to.
Their ultimate goal is to be able to sell out arenas nationwide and Natalie would love to someday "fly over the audience" while playing her fiddle.
They concurred that they would love to someday collaborate with country mega-star Keith Urban and they listen Jaren Johnston from the country trio The Cadillac Three and country singer Chris Stapleton as two other worthy picks for their dream duet choices.
