Local Campbell Station Band is basking in the glow of its recent performance at Riverbend on the Chevy Stage on the festival's first night.

The band guitarist Seth Ferguson, of LaFayette, and co-lead singers Campbell Ross, of Signal Mountain, and Elaina Conner, of LaFayette, all live in Nashville now to pursue their dream of making it in the music business. The trio said performing at Riverbend for the first time was an exciting step in that journey.

"In January of 2015 the band began," said Ross. "I was friends with Elaina because I used to work at Sony with her. Elaina introduced me to Seth at a restaurant. We realized our talents would work well together. I've never met anyone that can harmonize and match with me like Elaina."

Ross said the bandmates put their own spin on what they want country music to sound like.

"Our music is an old school country vibe with a modern sound," she said. "Seth likes the Beatles and the Beach Boys. I like The Civil Wars and Nickel Creek. Elaina likes pop music. She listens to Adele and Beyonce, but she also likes Martina McBride and Jo Dee Messina."

The band's newly summer released single on iTunes and Spotify, "Already Gone," is the first song the group has written together, said Ross. She said they wrote it in about 30 minutes.

Ross' goal for the Campbell Station Band is to be the next Lady Antebellum.

"We were so thankful for the opportunity to play at Riverbend," she said. "We were thankful for all the local support."

After Riverbend, the Campbell Station Band performed in Franklin, Tenn., at West Haven Porch Fest. The band's next local show is Friday, June 24 at Feed Table Co. and Tavern in Chattanooga's Southside district from 10 p.m. to midnight. Feed is located at 201 W. Main St.
