In the past decade or so, the band has held numerous accolades, including two billboard chart-topping albums, Holding All the Roses (2015) & Like an Arrow (2016). They have also toured with artists such as the Zac Brown Band, Eric Church, ZZ Top, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Their most recent album, Find a Light, was recorded, according to a an interview Starr did with Rolling Stone, in the same way as, “kids running in a candy store,” which he then explained as, “not answering to a producer or an A&R guy. But at the end of the day we’re not gonna release something we don’t feel strongly about.” The band is currently touring North America with JJ Grey & Mofro.
