This month, Justin is featuring a band that formed in our back yard- Green River Ordinance. GRO started off touring in local Texas venues, at different colleges, and at their high school, but that quickly evolved into a much high scale. Two of their singles ended up in the Billboard top 40 which led them to open for musicians such as Bon Jovi, Train, Zac Brown Band, Counting Crows, and The Goo Goo Dolls.
These guys came together as friends and brothers, about 10 years ago, wanting to start a band. Their original focus was making great music, and that is exactly what they been doing. GRO has released two full length albums that gained national recognition on the Billboard Top 100 chart. Green River Ordinance continues to challenge the definitions of music genres with their music easily classifying as country, rock, pop, and folk, but their music will speak to your soul and make you want to dance. GRO's newest release, "Chasing Down The Wind", showcases that ability in their songs. GRO front-man, Josh Jenkins, said, "This album is our most honest and hopeful songwriting yet, and we couldn't be happier about it".
The guys of Green River Ordinance are laid-back, authentic Texans and so are we, so it makes for a perfect fit! They are a one-of-a-kind group with great potential and we're excited to see just how far they go. Make sure to support our current "Ones to Watch", Green River Ordinance, by "liking" them on Facebook and following them on Twitter and Instagram.
