Popular rockin’ Country sister trio,Â Southern Halo, will be special guests of theÂ British Country Music Association AwardsÂ onÂ October 22.Â The Americans, nominated in theÂ International Act of the Year (Touring)Â award category, have also been invited to perform and to present an award to another of the evening’s hopefuls.Â The entertainers made quite a name for themselves on this side of the pond in June as London openers for superstar Dionne Warwick at theÂ David Gest Memorial Concert.Â In appreciation of their international fans’ support and the gracious attentions of the BCMA, the siblings will release a new single,Â “Just Like In The Movies,”exclusively to all UK radio outlets on September 1 – the same day that member voting begins for the BCMA Awards.Â The special-release track, available for purchase onÂ iTunesÂ andÂ Amazon, is from the group’s upcoming 2018 album.
Following the awards show they will embark on a promotional radio tour that includes select performances in Scotland.Â A complete schedule appears below.
The Morris sisters hail from the small town of Cleveland, Mississippi in the heart of the Delta, the home of Blues and Rock & Roll.Â Â Natalia (principal songwriter, guitarist, lead vocalist), Christina (drums) and Hannah (bass) are Southern Halo, and they’veÂ created their own signature sound that offersÂ a blend of multiple Country styles, current Alt. Pop vibes and a dash of Southern Rock.Â It’s youthful, energetic music – made immediately recognizable by the sweet familial harmonies that have become Southern Halo’s trademark.Â Noted music critic Robert K. Oermann ofÂ MusicRow MagazineÂ says the sisters “harmonize like angels.”Â
In addition to their incredible harmonies, the girls lay it all on the line with high-energy stage shows during opening sets forÂ top-tier acts and as headliners.Â To date, they’ve kicked off shows for Warwick, Brantley Gilbert, Eric Paslay,Â Maren Morris,Â Love and Theft,Â Tyler Farr, Randy Houser, John Michael Montgomery, Parmalee, Old Dominion, Jamie Lynn Spears, Craig Campbell, Uncle Kracker, Julie Roberts, American Young and B.B. King.Â
Last year they made theirÂ CMA Music FestivalÂ debut with appearances on two separate stages,Â were named Nashville Universe’sÂ Vocal Group of the Year 2016, performed at an elite pre-GRAMMY Awards show in Los Angeles, and launched Townsquare Media’sÂ “Say It With Pepsi”Â Concert Series.Â They returned toÂ CMA Music FestivalÂ again this year, and have enjoyed a jam-packed schedule since then.Â
These long-legged blond beauties with their joyous attitudes enjoy a rigorous band practice regimine, writing sessions, tour dates, photo and video shoots, and more.Â Musical tastes differ and with a range of influences that runs the gamut from Vince Gill,Â Keith Urban, Lady GagaÂ and Justin Timberlake (Natalia) to Dave Grohl and Pink (Christina) toÂ Selena Gomez and Michael JacksonÂ (Hannah), the creative forces in play are diverse.Â Their current CD,Â SOUTHERN HALO, was produced by SESAC’sÂ 2012 Writer of the YearÂ Catt Gravitt (Kelly Clarkson, Jake Owen) and Gerald O’Brien (writer of hits for Martina McBride, Trace Adkins).Â The disc,Â available for purchaseÂ on Â iTunesÂ andÂ Amazon,Â has generated three hit single/videos:Â “Little White Dress,” “Rewind”Â andÂ “Living Like That.”Â
“We’ve been so fortunate,” notes Natalia.Â “We’ve gotten a lot of breaks since getting to the National finals of the 2014Â Texaco Country Showdown,Â and we have worked hard to be worthy of them.Â We love the UK – the energy and love of music the people have there is inspiring – and we cannot wait to return.”Â Southern Halo fans can catch them at these upcoming events:
