Nashville, TN…June 8, 2010…It has been two years since Texas natives Addison Road made their debut with their self-titled record home of the hits ”All That Matters,” “What Do I know of Holy,” and “Hope Now.” Now on June 22, the Dove nominated band will release their highly anticipated sophomore album Stories.

The songs on Stories became part of a theme without the band realizing it, a theme the members would soon experience quite personally. Their first single “Fight Another Day,” written by Grammy winning lyricist, TobyMac, is climbing to the top on the radio charts. Having released just a few weeks ago it has already placed at No. 11 on CHR, No. 21 on AC Indicator and No. 22 on AC Monitored. Additionally, it is being played on 60 stations across America including Air 1, Way-FM and in major markets such as Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Portland and Baltimore. The song’s lyrics hit close to home as the band were the victims of a devastating fire in which they lost all of their equipment and personal belongings just a few months ago.

“We’ve never done anybody else’s song, ever, but he felt sure the song sounded like us,” says lead singer Jenny Simmons.“We had no idea when we recorded lines about feeling the flames when the fire gets hot that we would actually have everything we own literally burn up in a fire.”

“These songs have been the picture of our year,” she continues. “The theme – fighting another day, persevering, getting to the end of your own plans and recognizing that God is going to do something beautiful – we’ve lived that out this year.”

Change is a fact of life for the band. Since their last album, Simmons and her husband Ryan have welcomed their baby girl, Anniston and just last week guitarist Ryan Gregg and his wife are the new proud parents of Lila Kate Gregg. Newlywed drummer Jeff Sutton decided to leave the band and finish his teaching degree; a highly-publicized search for a new drummer was conducted on YouTube, with audition tapes posted from around the world. Bass player Travis Lawrence, has continued to expand his design work, doing artwork for the band as well as other artists. He's also picked up banjo and harmonica, both of which are featured on Stories.

Grammy-nominated Chris Stevens (Matthew West, TobyMac, Big Daddy Weave) returns to handle production on Stories, developing songs with memorable hooks and driving beats. Simmons’ vocal abilities continue to impress, lending an honest and authentic voice to lyrics that hit listeners with disarming relevance.

It’s as if God has brought them through an arduous mountain climb so they can deliver these Stories with genuineness, and remind their listeners that the climb may be difficult, but you can see a lot of good things once you’ve reached the top.
