The guys in A Thousand Horses are at ages where they’re definitely starting to recognize traits in themselves that make them a lot like their dads.

Zach Brown says, “I like to drive. I get that from my dad I think. He was a bus driver and a mailman, and I went alright I like to drive around sometimes.”

Bill Satcher credits his dad for his obsession with music.  He says, “My dad, the way I got into music, was he loves music. My parents aren’t musicians but my dad always had the nicest stereo, like the nicest CD player everything that came out, the nicest stereo speakers, everything. So we were constantly always listening to music. I guess he’s kind of an audio nut. You know he likes the sound of music not just the songs. So at a young age I learned to listen to not just the music itself but the quality of it. And like really dissect it and I still do that so I think you know I probably got my obsession with music from that.”

Their latest single, “Preachin’ to the Choir,” is an ode to the hard workin’ man, which would apply to all of their dads.
