(Friday June 2nd, 2017 – Toronto, ON) Sony Music Entertainment Canada Inc. country music group Cold Creek County, drop their sophomore EP release Homemade today. Homemade is available now in stores and at all DSP’s. The new EP contains 5 new songs including the hit single “Homemade” and acoustic versions of “Money” and the title track. The band will perform their new songs this summer at country music festivals nationally. “Homemade”, the title track and first single from the bands 7 song sophomore EP, was serviced to radio on May 24th to great fanfare, achieving the #4 most added song at Canadian Country Radio and #8 most added at all formats combined. Homemade is a tribute to the band’s hometown roots and family vibes. Cold Creek County have a new singer, with Dalmeny, Saskatchewan’s (population 1,702) Ches Anthony taking over centre stage duties. Cold Creek County is now fully a six piece band with Banjo/vocalist Jordan Honsinger brought on full time after touring with CCC for the past 18 months. Anthony grew up in a small town, homeschooled musically by talented parents. “My mom, if I even hit a flat note I’d basically get a ruler on the hand and an, ‘If you can’t sing on key don’t sing at all,'” recalls Anthony with a chuckle. “She pushed me really hard to at least sing on key.” That training is on fine display on Homemade, the first of two upcoming releases, with the second EP scheduled later down the road.  Produced and mixed by Scott Cooke (Florida Georgia Line, Nickelback) and Doug Oliver, Homemade showcases a new, more mature side of Cold Creek County pushing the bands vocal harmonies to the forefront. “Ches is quite a musician, vocalist and a real pro,” says lead guitarist Trevor MacLeod. “His style is really natural and that drew us to him.” Anthony should fit right in with a band that also includes Dougie Oliver (Drum/Vocals), Josh Lester (Guitar, Vocals), Trevor MacLeod (Lead Guitar, Vocals), Justin Lester (Bass, Vocals) and Jordan Honsinger (Banjo, Acoustic Guitar, Vocals). Cold Creek County have already been rewarded for their debut music release “Till The Wheels Come Off” winning three 2016 CMA Ontario Awards (Group or Duo of the Year, Rising Star Award, Fans Choice) and the 2016 CRMA Best New Group or Solo Artist: Country. The band were also nominated for a 2017 Juno Award (Breakthrough Group Of The Year) and three 2016 CCMA Awards (Group or Duo of the Year, Rising Star, Video of the Year (Our Town) performing their massive radio hit “Our Town” on the live CCMA TV broadcast. Cold Creek County are managed by Kevin ‘Chief’ Zaruk at Chief Music (Florida-Georgia Line, Dallas Smith, Chris Lane, and Joey Moi) and co-managed with band leader Doug Oliver.
