When playing cards, a Triple Run is a string of multiple points in your favor. In music, it’s a rhythmic pattern with more ups than downs.
Nashville’s Cal IV Entertainment and their writers are on Triple Runs of their own these days.
Literally. Scoring big points with more ups than downs respectively.
If the one, two punch of Eric Paslay and Rose Falcon nailing a number one hit over the weekend with “Friday Night” isn’t enough, Nashville is getting TKO’d by Cal IV with the first official look at a band comprised of their writers Eric Knutson, Matt Singleton and Brittany Taylor. They go by, fittingly enough, Triple Run.
Triple Run opened for Paslay at his record release show last Friday Night (you can’t make this up), just hours before the song hit number one. If that weren’t exciting enough for this talented trio, they were formally showcased and warmly received Wednesday at 3rd & Lindsley, to an audience of industry brass, family and friends.
These three are the real deal and a triple threat in their own right. Like a breath of fresh air, the hooks of their tunes are catchy but contain actual substance. Once you meet the band, it doesn’t come as much of a surprise why. They are comprised of equally talented musicians who not only play with energy and finesse, but are also capable of singing lead or harmonizing with ease. Doing so only makes each other look even better. It’s not like they need it.
They already look the part. All three are gorgeous.
You get the picture.
Keep an eye out for Knutson, Singleton and Taylor. A successful future in music is definitely in the cards for them as part of Cal IV Entertainment’s musical ups.
