Nashville based husband and wife songwriting team Cloverdayle originally hail from the not-so-predictable country outpost of the Pacific Northwest. Since the birth of Cloverdayle in 2008, Chad & Rachel Hamar have had a relentless determination to bring their brand of country music to the masses in a grassroots way.
During their 2017 summer tour, Cloverdayle debuted their latest and quite possibly most personal song and it garnered such an emotional reaction from fans that Chad & Rachel knew they needed to get in the studio and record it right away. However, “Scars” was not written overnight. The initial concept for the lyric started back in 2013, after Rachel had an unexpected major surgery, waking up with what she described as both “physical and emotional scars”. Rachel discovered that she has stage 4 endometriosis and that, after years of trying, their chances of having kids naturally would probably never happen. Chad & Rachel know that we all share the common threads of hurt and healing, and especially with everything that’s happening in our world, they feel that the message of this song will be universally relatable. “Scars” was officially released on November 10th, 2017 and is available now on all digital platforms.
Flashback to 2010, Cloverdayle teamed up with songwriter and producer Terry McBride, (“Play Something Country”, “If You See Him, If You See Her”), and Dwain Rowe, (long-time band leader for Brooks & Dunn), to record a 4-song demo EP. That freshman project opened up numerous doors and has allowed the duo to embark upon their more recent adventures.
In the spring of 2012, Cloverdayle began work on their first full-length album in Nashville titled 9 Miles Down a 10 Mile Road. As avid songwriters, Chad & Rachel penned or co-penned each of the 13 tracks on the album. The debut single, “Like We Were Kids Again”, featured Jason Aldean’s band and was produced by New Voice Entertainment, (Thompson Square, Parmalee). “Like We Were Kids Again” received accolades on Billboard.com and was heard on country radio across the United States and abroad. The follow up single, “It Is What It Is”, was picked up by the popular Canadian TV series Heartland and was featured in an episode that is now streaming on Netflix.
After making the move to Nashville in 2014, Chad and Rachel spent their first year in Music City immersed in writing & recording. By 2015, Cloverdayle joined forces with producer Steve Sundholm, (whose credits include projects with Carrie Underwood, Kenny Rogers, Ryan Tedder, Jim Brickman and Lady Antebellum), for their highly anticipated second full length album “Off The Grid”.
Outside of the studio and songwriting worlds, Cloverdayle is best known for their energy-fueled and compelling live show and have shared the stage with industry heavyweights including Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum.
Cloverdayle is currently writing and recording for their next studio project.
