Artist of the Month: Drew & Ellie Holcomb

Jan 4, 2022

Artist of the Month: Drew & Ellie Holcomb

Drew & Ellie Holcomb are about to hit the highways to promote Coming Home: A Collection of Songs, a new compilation album that represents their life together as a couple. Alongside a batch of familiar songs from their catalog that reflect their life as a couple, the Holcombs also put their own spin on Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again” and even update one of their best-known works, “Hung the Moon.”

Upon releasing the new version of that crowd favorite, Ellie explained, “I wrote ‘Hung the Moon’ after a long season of listening to a lot of Lucinda Williams. It’s always been a song that’s felt like home to me. Drew was playing these chords around the kitchen one day, and I promptly stole them and wrote a love song about him. It’s been an honor to see ‘Hung the Moon’ be included in so many people’s weddings over the years and I LOVE this new take on an older song of ours. I hope y’all enjoy it as much as we enjoyed re-recording it!”

Drew and Ellie met as students at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, and they married in 2006, a year after Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors began carving out a spot among the independent music landscape. Ellie ventured into solo territory in 2012, making significant inroads in Christian music. Meanwhile, Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors have forged on, with Drew tacking a couple of side projects like a vinyl subscription service, a top-draw music festival, and premium Tennessee whiskey. Next month, Drew & Ellie Holcomb will launch the You & Me Tour in Florida, with dates running coast to coast through March.
