Following in the footsteps of countless musicians and artists, J.C. Andersen Band now call Nashville, Tennessee their home. All hailing from different states around the U.S. (J.C. - Ft. Lauderdale, FL, Caleb Balas and Ryan Norris - Wooster, OH, Travis Hillesland - Burbank, CA, Jeff Rogers - Dallas, TX, and Matthew Cox - Edwardsville, IL), these musicians somehow came together over the last decade to form this band of brothers now playing towns all across the nation!
You've likely seen them on tour opening for such artists as Keith Urban, Van Zant, Trick Pony, Tracy Byrd, LeAnn Rimes, Joe Nichols, Diamond Rio, Lonestar, Brad Paisley, Darryl Worley, Trace Adkins, Steve Azar, Rodney Atkins, and Toby Keith.
So far, their discography includes two records. The first in 2005, "When the Tide Rolls In" sold over 10,000 copies, ushering in the long-awaited production of their follow-up album released in 2012, "Where the Weak Get Strong". Their third album, not titled yet, is scheduled for release in the Spring of 2017.
J.C. Andersen was one of the lucky six national finalists on the hit T.V. show “The Next GAC Star” where he placed third overall on the live finale.
Not long after the success of the television show, the band beat 800 of America's best bands to be crowned the winners of the Wildhorse Saloon House Band Contest, or "Battle for the Saddle", throwing them into the leagues of some of Nashville’s tightest, most notable groups.
