In 2011 Sam Hayes (Lead Vocals | Acoustic Guitar), Josh Gramling (Lead Guitar | Vocals) and Moises Padilla (Drummer) met and instantly felt a musical connection. Not only did the trio mesh well together in the writing room and in the studio but they also found themselves becoming close friends. They hit the streets of Lower Broadway in Nashville and began playing shows all across town. One day they realized if they were going to keep playing together they might as well pick a band name. They had seen an old Eddie Rabbit Album on the wall at famed Broadway Honky Tonk, Legendâ€™s Corner titled, â€œRadio Romanceâ€ and it was an instant sell. In 2016 Adam Smithwick (Bass Guitar | Vocals) joined the group as a full time member. Radio Romance was born and the guys have been writing, recording and touring ever since.
In 2017, Radio Romance was named Winner of NASHNext presented by Cumulus Media and Sponsored by Country Inn and Suites. Winning the competition secured the band a Record Deal with Big Machine Label Group out of Nashville, TN. Their debut single under BMLG / NASHNext Records will be released in the spring of 2018.
