The Darlins

The Darlins is a country music duo based in Nashville, Tennessee featuring Portland, Oregon native, Jude Toy, and Music City's own, Erinn Bates. Since 2011, the pair have opened for country stars Darryl Worley, Kacey Musgraves, Montgomery Gentry, The Steel Drivers, Chris Young, Loretta Lynn, and many others. Their rootsy guitar riffs and bluegrass infused mandolin and mountain harmonies are reminiscent of the early Dixie Chicks and The Band Perry and have secured them song placements on network television including ABC and The Sportsman’s Channel. 


Recently, The Darlins opened the 2014 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim, California and won the national battle of the bands competition, The 2nd Hourly Gig, sponsored by Snagajob. In 2015, the pair will join country superstars Blake Shelton and Neal McCoy on the annual Country Cruise. The Darlins are currently writing with a network of hit songwriters and recording with some of Nashville’s finest players for their first EP.
