Zach and Colton Swon remember their first performance in Nashville like it was yesterday. It wasn’t in a packed house during a writers’ night on a dimly-lit stage, or in the office of a publisher who was eager to hear their latest songs. It was actually a “pit stop” on the way to a family vacation in Florida. Of course, they were only 9 and 11 years old at the time, but to them, it was perfectly normal. After all, they’d practically grown up riding their parents’ tour bus and performing as part of their family’s gospel group since they were old enough to talk. So stopping off in Nashville to pick up a record deal on their way to summer vacation just seemed logical to young Zach and his little brother Colton. And… their parents weren’t about to dampen the spirits of their talented and determined young sons.

The guys didn’t land a record deal the day they sheepishly walked into the lobby of a certain major record label and asked the receptionist if they could please sing for someone, but they did make such an impression on the president of the label that the three struck up a professional relationship. That single-mindedness of purpose and laser-focused determination to make their music the best it can possibly be has never wavered for either of these hardworking Oklahoma boys, who are poised and ready to share their own unique brand of heartfelt country music with the world.

After leaving the road, their parents formed a family-style variety show back in Oklahoma in a nearby town, Wagoner, OK and soon Zach and Colton were charming crowds each week and cutting their musical teeth on everything from Elvis to Frank Sinatra.

The Swons show at the Civic Center in Wagoner became very popular and soon they were filling the building to capacity as fans packed in week after week to watch them entertain. After building quite a following, Zach and Colton decided to begin playing as a duo and focused even more on their songwriting. Both have been writing since they were very young and now they return to Nashville on a regular basis to co-write. They actually have their first trip to Music City documented on tape -- not that they could ever forget that fateful day when they first became hopelessly enchanted with Nashville and its country music scene.

The Swon Brothers were recently finalists on NBC’s “The Voice” on team Blake. Prior to their “Voice” experience however, The Swon Brothers spent years performing and recording music on their own label which have been well-received among their ever-growing fan base.
