Some things are just meant to be, and the divine pairing of Stewart and Holly serves as a perfect example. The two Alabama natives met at the world famous Bluebird Café shortly after they each moved to Nashville. They both moved to town with a dream and a moving story. During their high school days, both Stewart and Holly found healing and comfort in music as they each had endured tragedies – Stewart survived an EF4 tornado hitting his school and taking the lives of eight of his friends, while Holly lost her grandmother and cousin in drunk driving accidents.
“These tragic events helped us know that music was what we wanted to do with our lives,” shared Holly.
“I realized it could make a difference in other people's lives, and that you can touch the life of someone you've never met,” added Stewart.
Holly made it to the third round of the preliminaries of NBC's “The Voice, while Stewart brought several impressive awards to the table. The future duo began co-writing, and both approached their music with a “live life to the fullest” outlook. Sparks flew between the two, and it became certain that their chemistry onstage and offstage set them apart in a large pool of aspiring artists. They began working with Rick Barker, who managed Taylor Swift when she got her record deal. Barker witnessed their unwavering work ethic and their obvious connection. Subsequently he encouraged them to work as a team. From taking his advice and following his model, they continue to watch their careers flourish.
The Springs have shared the stage with some of country music's top recording acts including Florida Georgia Line, Thompson Square, Jake Owen, Josh Turner, Gary Allan, Hunter Hayes, Love and Theft, Mark Wills, Little Big Town, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Charlie Daniels and Easton Corbin.
As down to earth as they are talented, The Springs enjoy interacting with their fans of all ages. Their fans have taken on the name “Springsters”, and have truly become more than just “fans” to The Springs. Stewart & Holly actually call their fans, “frans” (friends + fans = frans) because they truly feel a personal friendship between each fan. After each show they stay to make sure they sign autographs and take pictures with everyone that comes (many times 4-6 hours) to let each “fran” know how much they mean to them.
Offstage, Holly accepted Stewart's marriage proposal on December 20th, 2013. Stewart popped the question at the Bluebird where the pair first met on January 23rd, 2011. He was successful in closing the Bluebird down for 2 hours and successful in getting that “Yes.” Besides the couple, the only other people present for the memorable moment were Stewart and Holly's parents and a photographer.
More Recently, Stewart and Holly “tied the knot” on September 12th, 2015. The couple was married in their home state of Alabama in front of their families, band members, and closest friends. While they could not invite all their “frans” to the wedding, they did want them to be a part of their special day and the wedding was streamed LIVE over Periscope with over 1500 viewers.
Their faith, individuality and unwavering work ethic, positively places them in a league of their own in the midst of an ever competitive industry. They believe in family-friendly shows and their songs reflect those values. The standout duo has tirelessly performed over 300 shows, while personally engaging with their audiences.
As their careers continue to rise, they remember where they came from. They're just doing what they love and loving what they do…..and they're inviting everyone along for the ride.
