One of my new favorite groups is signed to Big Machine/Valory Music Company, Delta Rae.
Delta Rae formed in 2009 and are originally from Durham, NC. The 6-piece band is comprised of Liz Hopkins and Brittany Holljes, who front the group taking lead vocals. Harmonies by Eric Holljes (vocals, piano) and Ian Holljes (vocals, guitar). Mike McKee on drums and Grant Emerson on bass.
Their new single just released to country radio is “No Peace in Quiet”, a beautiful ballad written by Eric Holljes during a difficult time in his life following a break-up. Finding himself very alone in his apartment following the break-up, the song flowed out of him as he struggled to come to terms with a loss he blamed himself for and seeking some solace in music. It’s a very personal song for him that is even difficult for him to talk about, much less take lead to sing it. Liz takes the lead singing this song with harmonies from all. A mesmerizing and heartfelt song.
Such a great lunch today with @bigmachinelabelgroup & @deltarae!! Tacos, Coke, & great music…What more could I ask for?! 🌮🎶 Several video clips to watch here of their acoustic performance for us. They are fantastic!

Brought a @cocacola & a #smile, don't you think?! 😉🤣 Coke in a glass bottle is THE BEST ever. I don't know if it REALLY tastes better from a glass bottle rather than a can or plastic bottle, but it sure seems that way! 😄 ▪ ▪ ▪ #deltarae #bigmachine #acoustic #music # #country #nashvilletn #nashville #tennessee #instamusic #insta #instagram #instagramer #instagramers #instagood #instadaily #new #cool #instavideo #video #videos #videooftheday
Ever since I first saw this group perform a few years back, they have stood out to me. Intriguing and just different from everyone else out there.
Their passion for the music, energy, harmonies, and larger-than-life performances create magic from their stage. It’s not something that can be defined or explained by simple words. They must be experienced live, then you’ll understand the special, intriguing qualities that make this group different and ones you need to watch.
