Short bio: 

The band was founded in 1998 and has had the same four members since its inception. They are Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Jimi Westbrook, and Phillip Sweet. The group signed with Mercury Nashville Records, but no albums or singles were ever released from that deal.

In 2002 the band released a self-titled debut record on Monument, but only had two minor country chart singles. In 2005 they signed with Equity Music group, which was an independent record label owned by Clint Black. They released their second album there and not only did it become certified platinum in the US (meaning it sold over a million copies) it produced two top ten singles: "Boondocks" and "Bring It On Home."

In 2007 the band released it's third album, first on Equity, but when that label closed its doors, Capitol Records picked it up and re-released it. It wasn't until 2010, with the release of the album "The Reason Why" did they see chart success again. It was with the song "Little White Church" and it reached the top ten country charts.

In 2012, the band released the album Toronto and that's when they saw their first number one song with "Pontoon."
