KID ROCK AND VECTOR’S KEN LEVITAN SIGN SWEET TEA TRIO TO EXCLUSIVE MANAGEMENT CO-VENTURE.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (February 20, 2018) - Rising country group, Sweet Tea Trio, has signed an exclusive management deal with the rock-and-roll icon, Kid Rock (Robert Ritchie), and Vector Management founder, Ken Levitan. The joint venture marks a first for the industry veterans, who worked together early in Kid Rock’s career.
Ritchie discovered the trio, made up of Alabama natives Victoria Camp, Savannah Coker and Kate Falcon, after they posted a video performing one of their original songs on YouTube. Ritchie invited them to perform on his eighth annual Chillin The Most Cruise last year, where his fans fell in love with the group.
“These young ladies are some of the most talented, kind hearted and hard working singers and players I have ever met,” remarks Ritchie (Kid Rock). “They are already becoming fast scholars of the road and writing songs. In my opinion they pick up where the Dixie Chicks and Pistol Annies meet. They are 100% country and I look forward to sharing my 30 years in this business to get them an honest shot at the big time.“
Following their performance on Kid Rock’s Chillin The Most Cruise, Sweet Tea Trio continued to perform across the country in 2017, opening nine arena dates for Kid Rock, as well as being chosen by LiveNation to open for Bon Jovi in Birmingham, Ala. They kicked off 2018 by performing to a sold out crowd at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Kid Rock’s American Rock n Roll Tour.
“The three of us feel so honored that Kid Rock and Ken (Levitan) have given us this incredible opportunity. The entire team with Kid Rock and Vector feels like a family and we cannot wait to see what the future holds,” says Sweet Tea Trio. “We give all the glory to God and we are so excited! We love our country music family and are looking forward to making music, hitting the road, and hopefully giving country music a sugar rush!”
Later this month, Sweet Tea Trio will open for the legendary group, Alabama, and continue opening for Kid Rock on his American Rock n Roll Tour. The Trio released a self titled EP last June, which debuted at No.11 on the iTunes Country chart. The six song EP was produced by Jason Wyatt (former lead singer of The Lost Trailers) with Executive Producer Matt Rovey ( Craig Campbell, Dean Brody), and can be purchased or streamed at all digital retailers.
