Track45 Set to be Facebook’s Artist of the Day on March 2nd
Country sibling trio Track45 today releases the second of their introduction EPs, Big Dreams, which follows their fall debut EP, Small Town via Stoney Creek Records/BBR Music Group/BMG. Big Dreams combines tracks from their Small Town EP with one new original and one incredible Dolly Parton cover. Totalling five songs, this collection of songs prove Track45 has sound and texture the Country format has been hungry for. Small Town is about how the band grew up and where they come from while Big Dreams is about their journey of chasing those big dreams to the big city of Nashville. Listen to Big Dreams HERE now!
“Every song we write is a little piece of us,” says Jenna, Ben, and KK Johnson. “Each project we release fills in the story of who we are, where we’ve been and where we’re going. We hope listening to Big Dreams feels like sitting on a back porch getting to know us!”
To follow the release of Big Dreams, their debut single “Met Me Now” is set to impact US Country radio this Monday, March 1st. According to Music Row, “….fresh and youthful sounding. The female lead singer is charming, but the track really takes off when the when the whole trio harmonises. The punchy percussion scores points, too.”
Last week, Track45 received an incredible response from industry professionals after they wowed Country Radio Seminar (CRS) participants during their performance for Amazon Music Presents: ‘Country Heat’ at CRS (virtually, of course). Since the announcement of their signing, they’ve experienced the industry through a different lens. Instead of hitting the road to radio station-hop from coast-to-coast, they launched a six-week radio tour where Country stations across the U.S. got the chance to bring Track45 into their living rooms, offices, kitchens, etc. where the band performed LIVE from the legendary Ron Fair’s state-of-the-art studio, Faircraft Studios.
On March 2nd, Track45 will be Facebook’s Artist of the Day featured on the Music on Facebook Page to talk about their new music. Aside from the incredible cover song of the one and only Dolly Parton, the trio have songwriting credits on every track of the EP and produced several cuts, but they also enlisted an elite list of creative collaborators including Grammy-winning producer Byron Gallimore. Each is a gifted songwriter and musician with individual publishing deals and impressive writing credits – including Justin Timberlake, Charlie Puth, Lee Brice, Dierks Bentley, Weezer, HARDY, and Lauren Alaina. Their combined hopes and passion for music can be heard in every note of their dream big sound.

Hailing from Meridian, Mississippi, siblings Jenna, Ben, and KK have taken family-based small-town values and stories and made them relevant in a modern world. They have taken their experience as a family and love for one another and combined their own individual successes to create their musical style. The music successfully captures a multi-layered, crisp, soulful sound that draws effortlessly from their assorted country, rock, R&B, and pop playlists.
Track45 announced their signing with BBR Music Group/Stoney Creek Records in August by collaborating with the new AR (augmented reality) app Jadu (watch HERE). This allowed Track45 to memorialise their milestone virtually with anyone, anywhere. The cutting-edge technology allowed the band to appear in the same space via holograph to celebrate with their new label family and the industry as well as fans and family. Shortly after the announcement, the trio started their first media tour performing LIVE at Ron Fair’s (Christina Aguilera, Black Eyed Peas, Gwen Stefani, Pussycat Dolls, and more) Faircraft Studio. With back-to-back live performances for media and then later for radio in the studio, Track45 displays their versatility adapting to modern times while holding country roots and values.
Sibling trio Track45 – Jenna, Ben, and KK Johnson from Meridian, MS – have taken family-based, small-town values and made them relevant in a modern world. The trio’s crystalline harmonies and track-charged musicianship sound current yet classic on both parts of their debut EP, Small Town(part one released fall 2020) and Big Dreams (part two – out February 26) released via Stoney Creek Records/BBR Music Group. The five-song collection captures a crisp, soulful vibe that draws effortlessly from their assorted country, rock, R&B, and pop playlists. Aside from the incredible Dolly Parton cover, the trio have songwriting credits on every original track and produced several cuts, but they also enlisted an elite group of creative collaborators including Grammy-winning producer Byron Gallimore. Each is a gifted songwriter and musician with individual publishing deals and impressive writing credits – including Justin Timberlake, Charlie Puth, Dierks Bentley, Weezer, Lee Brice, HARDY, and Lauren Alaina. Their combined hopes and passion for music can be heard in every note of their dream big sound. Track45 is a sound and texture the Country format is hungry for and is on full display in their first single “Met Me Now” which is set to impact US Country radio on March 1st.
