Coldwater Canyon Band Supports America's Troops While Stirring Up the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales Chart

The Los Angeles Based Country Group Supports the Veterans Aid & Organization With the Touching "Piece of Mind" and Will Perform on the Veterans Day Virtual Telethon November 6

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 16, 2010) -  Rockin' Los Angeles based country group Coldwater Canyon Band (www.myspace.com/coldwatercanyonla) has been stirring things up on the music scene since the release of their debut album Just Getting Started and their first single "Nobody Knows," which jumped to #27 from #39 this week on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Sales Chart, a pretty major feat for an indie group without major label backing.

Wanting to do some good with their success, Coldwater Canyon Band has pledged to give back by supporting America's heroes, the men and women who courageously and fearlessly serve and protect their country. 50 percent of proceeds from their touching song "Piece of Mind" will be donated to the Veterans Aid & Attendance Organization. Frontman Howie Vaughn penned the track after spending three years in the military and passionately believes what the servicemen, their families and even the war protesters need most is "Piece of Mind." The track can be purchased online at Amazon.com and iTunes.

Coldwater Canyon Band will further support the troops by appearing on the Veterans Day Virtual Telethon, which raises money for various veterans groups around the country, on November 6 at 2 p.m. Their 30-minute set will include "Piece of Mind" and their hit single "Nobody Knows." Kountreeboyz Entertainment (www.kountreeboyzentertainment.com) CEO Thomas Goodin will also appear.

Vaughn's unique hybrid has been a sensation at country radio since the release of Coldwater Canyon Band's 2008 debut Rollin'. Their first single "Country Girls" rose to #15 on the Billboard Hot Singles Chart (indicating great crossover success). "Nobody Knows" reached the Top Ten on the Hot Singles chart and #2 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart. The track is also getting major airplay via online outlets like the country channel on Music Choice.
