Seven Months into the release of their debut self-titled album, local act Cottonwood Creek has been hard at work sharing their passion for music in every venue, bar, theatre, and festival throughout nation. Recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, their album quickly climbed the charts, securing the 21st spot on the iTunes Country Charts within hours of its release. A feat in and of itself that marks them as the only independent artists to secure a top 30 spot, Cottonwood Creek’s success has also landed them on stages with some of country music’s biggest names, including Jake Owen, Scotty McCreery, Mark Chesnutt, Lauren Alaina, and Joe Nichols. To top everything off, they’ve begun headlining shows that are selling out as recently as June, further solidifying their apparent path to success.
Comprised of husband and wife Scott and Maggie Little, the country duo first met in the Mariposa area in 2012. With a shared taste in music, and a budding chemistry, the two were able to effortlessly combine their musical abilities. Together, the couple shares songwriting and vocal duties for performances, resulting in harmonizing vocals as they both take to the mic. Additionally, the two are able to synchronize all of this while playing everything from guitars, banjos, and mandalins, to harmonicas, drums and tambourines.
Needless to say, their stage presence and energy coupled with a unique sound often described as a modern twist on gritty, homegrown country music has secured them a legion of loyal and adoring fans.
Currently Cottonwood Creek is back in the local area, with several shows scheduled for the upcoming weeks. Starting in mid-July, the band will be performing in Mariposa on the 14th at Music on the Green before taking to the stage in Los Banos on the 25th as part of the Los Banos Farmers Market. At that point they’ll make their way down to Chowchilla’s Music in the Park and Rusty’s in Bishop on the 27th and 28th respectively. To close the month out, the band has back-to-back shows scheduled on the 30th as they head out of state to South Lake Tahoe’s Tamarack Lodge and the Hard Rock Café in Stateline, Nevada.
