Rising country-music stars The Swon Brothers will be in Roswell this Fourth of July to headline the musical entertainment at the Roswell SERTOMA Club’s Mike Satterfield Memorial 20th Annual Fireworks Extravaganza at Cielo Grande Recreation Area. The popular duo will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. during Roswell’s free Independence Day celebration.

The Swon Brothers gained notoriety as finalists on NBC’s “The Voice” in 2013 and released their major-label debut, The Swon Brothers, on Oct. 14, 2014, putting their stamp on the 11-song collection by co-producing with award-winning producer Mark Bright. The album’s first single “Later On” was the duo’s first Top 15 hit.

In 2014, Zach and Colton received a Country Music Association Award nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year. They received an American Country Music Award nomination for Vocal Duo of the Year followed by a Country Music Television Music Award nomination for Duo Video of the Year in 2015. They also opened for Brad Paisley on his Country Nation World Tour earlier that year.

In January 2016, the brothers surprised their fans with a brand new offering called “Timeless,” which hit the No. 2 spot on the Country iTunes chart just hours after its release, and debuted at No. 19 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart. On Jan. 30, 2016, they kicked off their first show in Jacksonville, Fla., on Carrie Underwood’s “Storyteller Tour,” which toured arenas across the United States and Canada and wrapped on Nov. 28, 2016. That summer the brothers played a slate of their own “Swoncerts” nationwide. The debut single “Don’t Call Me” was released Feb. 24, 2017. On March 17, 2017, Zach and Colton released “Pretty Cool Scars,” which was produced by Brad Hill (Maren Morris, Brothers Osborne). The duo’s latest release is a single called “What Ever Happened,” released this Feb. 23, and is a song that the brothers wrote themselves.

Honored with the Rising Star award by the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2013 and just recently inducted into the Rhythm and Routes Oklahoma Music Trail in July 2017, the Muskogee, Okla., natives have been charming fans with their incredible sibling harmonies and fun-loving personalities since childhood. They will bring those talents to Roswell this Independence Day.
