2022 marks 17 years of harmony, friendship, road miles, album sales and live performing for Nashville recording group Due West, and they couldn’t be more grateful for the past and for the present.
Harmony happened the first time they ever sang together when old friends Matt Lopez and Brad Hull met Tim Gates at a party. The three Westerners (Wyoming, Arizona and Utah respectively) started harmonizing and the other attendees—Music Row stars, newcomers, and friends—kept asking how long they’d been a group. It’s been happening ever since as they’ve toured the country, visiting radio stations and playing for appreciative audiences along the way.
From that fateful first chord they sang together to their current busy road and recording schedule, they never dreamed they would be so fortunate to be able to continue beyond the typical lifespan of a recording group. They’ve seen their share of success on the Billboard, Country Aircheck, Sirius XM and Music Row radio charts, along with the CMT and GAC video charts and most recently the Billboard and iTunes Country album charts.
As a touring group, they’ve played to live audiences in 49 of the 50 United States. They’ve opened for some of the biggest names in Country music including Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum. They’ve also had the privilege of playing Country Music’s greatest stage, The Grand Ole Opry. Their entertaining show continues to draw and captivate audiences wherever they go.
