Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia went to high school eight miles apart in Kentucky. Their friendship and musical chemistry was immediate and the pair soon moved to Bowling Green, KY, where they played originals and covers four nights each week while finishing their degrees at Western Kentucky University. The two friends moved to Nashville after graduation to “chase the dream” together. Brent started a solo career. Throughout this time they continued to write and record demos together until they decided to form the duo Everette during a writing session – and a new Country Band was born.
