“Things just keep getting sweeter for award-winning, rising Country group, Sweet Tea Trio.
The three young ladies (ages 18-20), Victoria Camp, Savannah Coker and Kate Falcon recently completed nine arena dates opening for and performing with, Kid Rock in Michigan and Indiana. They will be returning to Michigan on Friday, October 20th to headline at The Dogwood Center for the Performing Arts in Fremont, The Lexington Village Theater on October 21st and The Machine Shop in Flint on October 22nd.
Kid Rock and his fans fell in love with the girls on his eighth annual Chillin’ the Most Cruise, 2017, where they performed six shows. They were also chosen by LiveNation to be the opener for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, AL earlier this year. Most recently they wowed fans at the CMA Music Fest in Nashville.
“I saw Sweet Tea Trio at the CMA Fest and they tore the place down! They are not only uber-talented, but they are wonderful spirited young ladies with big Alabama smiles! I predict now, these girls are headed for the big time! ” Kid Rock said.
The Trio’s self-titled EP debuted on the iTunes Country Chart at number 11 this past June and has continued to delight audiences and the country music industry alike. The EP was produced by Jason Wyatt (former lead singer of The Lost Trailers) with Executive Producer Matt Rovey (Zach Brown Band, Craig Campbell, Dean Brody).
“We are really proud of this EP, as we focused on creating something special that captured who we are as a group,” Falcon said. “I am excited that fans can now listen to our words and harmonies that make us sisters at heart, whenever they want to,” Coker said.
The Trio has two original songs on the six-song project; the other songs are written by top Nashville writers including Josh Kear, Mark Irwin, Brandi Clark, Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne.
Originally from Alabama, the now Nashville-based trio met in 2013 through a Birmingham artist development program called Nashville Bound. Each artist sang individually when they initially entered the program but quickly felt an instant vocal connection once they sang together. The Trio has been performing together ever since.
They made their national television debut singing at the Talladega Superspeedway, and have shared the stage with acts such as Lonestar, Tracy Lawrence, Scotty McCreery, Diamond Rio, Drake White, Shenandoah, and others. The trio was named Alabama’s Country Female Artist of the Year for 2016. In 2017, they were chosen by LiveNation to be the opener for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, and they performed six shows as a special guest of Kid Rock on his eighth annual Chillin’ the Most Cruise.
In July of 2013, the trio had an opportunity to sing at the World Deer Expo in Birmingham, AL. They entered a vocal competition and won the “Do You Have the C Factor?” – A spin-off of the X-Factor but related to country music. This first place win gave them the opportunity to compete at the Midsouth Fair, one of the largest and longest-running talent competitions in the world. Past winners and finalists of this event include most notably Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline and Justin Timberlake. After only singing together for a few months, Sweet Tea Trio came away from the Midsouth Fair with First Place Sweepstakes Winner in September 2013.
During their exposure at the World Deer Expo, the trio was asked to write a song for the company, Huntin’ is Good. This was their first song to garner major attention from the hunting industry. Their performance and professional skills landed them the chance to sing at the annual Country Goes Hunting event, in Blakely, Georgia in March 2014 and 2015, which includes national country artists and songwriters.
2014 became a fast-paced performance and songwriting year for the trio. They gathered fans everywhere they went, performing at festivals, fundraisers, and locations around Alabama as well as in Nashville. They were the featured music artists on a television show, Cookin’ it Wyld Style, on the Discovery network channel, Destination America.
A major achievement for the trio in 2014 was winning the largest and longest running country music talent search in the nation – the 33rd annual Country Music Showdown for Alabama and Georgia.
Their influence soon spread to Music City. They have performed in Nashville at Rippy’s, the Bluebird Café, The Tin Roof and are frequent performers at The Row. Mike Peck, the booking agent for The Row, said, “They are the best I’ve seen in a long time and should be on a fast track for much bigger things.”
Sweet Tea Trio has always believed in the power of their fans to help share their story. They appeal to the very young, littlest fans, to those that are still young at heart. Their fans and promoters not only love the music but also love the amazing energy and enthusiasm that the trio brings to the stage. They are also drawn to the kindness and authenticity of the Trio, noting how they take the time to meet their fans, sign autographs, and share stories. Sweet Tea Trio knows that it’s these moments that make them feel blessed to get to do what they love.”
