New Artist Spotlight: Waterloo Revival

What guy wouldn't want to be in Waterloo Revival?

Cody Cooper and George Birge joined forces in their middle school years when Cooper inspired the duo to express themselves through music. Their name came about later when they decided to spread Austin music past the lines of Texas, and into the rest of the world. The band is named after their hometown of Austin, TX, originally donned Waterloo, before it was renamed for the Father of Texas, Stephen F. Austin.

You may recognize them for their single, “What Guy Wouldn't," which has hit Sirius XM The Highway and has over 8 million streams on Spotify. After relocating from Austin to Nashville, their independently released single “Hit the Road," caught Big Machine's attention, leading to a deal with the record label. Since then, they have moved on to Toby Keith's record label, Show Dog Nashville. Keith has been a large influence on the boys' careers, since they are signed with his management company, TKO Artist Management, and joined forces on his “Interstates & Tailgates" tour.

“Toby Keith has been a massive influence on both of us through his music and through his regard for others. He is the rare breed of superstar who remains grounded in his roots," the duo share. “The opportunity to work with and learn from him as well as his team and the entire Show Dog family is something we could not be more excited about."

If you're in Nashville, see Waterloo Revival tomorrow night, November 2, for the Nashville House Concert show with Dierks Bentley. You can purchase tickets for the show here.
