The duo posted on Twitter, "Huge thank you to @TobyKeithMusic and @showdognash its gonna be a big year!!!"

Cody Cooper and George Birge comprise the duo, which started in Austin, but is now based in Nashville. The two were friends in middle school and reunited in 2013. They started writing and performing together, releasing a six-song EP and the Big Machine singles "Hit the Road" and "Bad for You." The duo's name is the original name of the city of Austin.

In an interview with Music Row, Keith said, ""I heard their music and thought man, they would be great on Show Dog," says Keith. "I haven't signed any bands in a long time and they inspired me to start doing that again."
