The C.R. Ecker Band began operations in Los Angeles in the Summer of 2011. The eight-member group offers, via digital downloaders around the world, a wide variety of traditional to 'uptown" country music. The latest love song "trifectra," all performed by male lead Michael Stanton, includes "No Turnin' Back," "One More Night with You" and "Our Fence Needs Mendin'."
The band is now in regular rotation on Renegade Radio Nashville after being named among the first ten "New Faces of Country" in early summer.
It recently won the "Song of the Year' Award at Starliners Europe with "Whisper Sweet Nothins" after garnering The Starliners Radio Network "Country Band of the Year" award for 2013, tie-ing in that category one year earlier.
Also, The C.R. Ecker Band has been in the Top 30 Countdown at Indepnedent Music Network with back to back hits for one full year and took second for 2012 "Band of the Year" at Independent Country Music Association.
It has received a band nomination at Artists in Music for 2014 and is nominated for two songs, one Country, the other Christian, at this year's Hollywood Music in Media Awards.
November of 2013 marked the second year that the band has been a spotlighted featured country group on Splashradio in England.
