We felt so honored to be chosen by Southwest Airlines to represent Music City,” says Heather.
“Live @ 35 was an amazing surprise for us (and hopefully for the passengers as well.) We had just finished the masters to our new album days before we got word from Southwest about the opportunity to come perform at 35,000 feet,” says Kaleb. “It’s been a year of newness for us as a young band, but experience in our individual musical endeavors has taught us to dive headfirst into opportunities like this. We cannot thank Southwest Airlines enough for this opportunities as well as providing the best and most creative customer service there is.”
