Biography

Closely Watch Trains was formed in December of 2008 by Scott Perry and Johnny Curry in Desoto County, MS: Just south of Memphis, TN. The two came together after working on a collaborative project to form a “New” country music band in light of the recent popularity and air play of such artists as Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bently, Montgomery Gentry etc;
The duo worked acoustically writing and arranging cover music from other popular country artists while trying to assemble a band.
Jeremy Allen joined them on vocals and guitar in the Spring of 2009 and the group set course to become a hometown favorite of the Memphis area and create a pride in the country music community where they live with all it’s musical talent.
The group was rounded out with the addition of Eddie Sorrell on keyboards and Rex Bright on bass guitar and David Mason.
The group opened their project at the Hernando “A Fair” in May of 2009 with the joint effort from Jack Casey. The group is heavily influenced by today’s new country artist with edgy guitar riff’s and strong vocal harmony. While playing covers from popular artists the band is currently writing and recording for an upcoming release of a debut album.
Closely Watch Trains has been entertaining the new and old country music fans for the last year bringing live new country to venues and escaping the myth that people only want to hear southern rock. The clubs and festival venues have seen first hand the support for this new country music with Closely Watch Trains. This band was assembled to give the new generation of country music fans what they want a little less tears in the beer and a lot more riff in the twang.
