Hailing from Nashville, TN, The Darlins have become one of country music’s “fastest rising duos” as named by the magazine, Nashville Music Guide. After meeting at the world renowned cosmetic boutique, SEPHORA, Jude Toy and Erinn Bates have shared the stage with country superstars, acclaimed #1 hit songwriters, performed festivals, and won national battle of the band competitions. In the fall of 2013, The Darlins won the Hourly Gig, sponsored by job search giant, Snagajob and over 100,000 votes were cast by the public for the pair to open for superstar duo, Montgomery Gentry. Their rootsy country sound and heartfelt lyrics also helped book them the coveted spot to join Neal McCoy, Trace Adkins, Joe Nichols, Craig Morgan, and more on the 2015 Country Cruise to the Bahamas.
The Darlins recently released their new EP “Crush”. The EP was produced by acclaimed producer and songwriter, Buddy Hyatt, and features six tunes all written and co-written by Jude and Erinn.
