Talking about the band and it’s behind story, Emma said: “We are all from Temecula, California. The way we got together was that Maddie and I are sisters so we started singing at a very young age. We met Dawson about four years ago through a vocal coach. There weren’t many guys in Temecula who sang, so, we’re like, maybe we should sing with him. Actually, there’s not a shortage of guys in Temecula (laughs). Just ones who sing.
She continued: “We started writing together and here we are. We named the group after the town. We grew up watching and listening to CMT. We watched it all the time. Our parents were always playing CMT for us. So, Maddie and I grew up singing country music. Now we still live in Temecula, but we come to Nashville to write and co-write with other people. We came about 8 times a year before we moved. It was just time to move to Music City and continue our journey here.”
And her sister Maddie (who is a year younger than her) talking about the recognition and fame they got, she said: “We can be in a town now and somebody will say, ‘Wait, she’s from Temecula Road. Can we get a picture?’ And I think, ‘Oh, maybe I should put the makeup on.’ We are definitely getting recognized. Our fans are so dedicated and that is so great.
Dawson about their collaboration with Disney: “I was actually born in North Carolina and moved to Temecula when I was about nine. We all met in Temecula. And if we talk about getting this offer from Disney Music, we were just ecstatic. It was just one of those surreal moments. They have such a far-reaching company and so many outlets. The great thing about them is that they are not trying to change us. They are just making us a better version of ourselves. That is so awesome!”
