A year later, they were on the hit CMT show Can You Duet?, moved to Nashville and signed a record deal with EMI Canada. They became genuine stars in Canada after releasing their self-titled album, in which several songs from that album shot towards the top of the charts. In two years, The Stellas were nominated for more than 10 awards. They took home the CCMA trophy for "Duo of the Year" in 2013, earned highly-coveted placements on two volumes of the Canadian Now Country CD series, and became in-demand songwriters.
Back in America, one of The Stellas' biggest fans, platinum-selling music titan Zac Brown, asked the duo to join his band for a series of sold-out shows. They agreed, adding those shows to an impressive touring roster that also included gigs with Johnny Reid and Terri Clark. The connection with Brown was later strengthened when Brad and Zac co-wrote "Let It Rain," a song released on Zac Brown Band's 2013 EP, The Grohl Sessions. "Let It Rain" was the EP's only song featuring Dave Grohl on drums.
These days, The Stellas are songwriters who have written 90% of the material on their own albums, as well as songs for other artists. They are artists who have won numerous awards. They’re the parents of Lennon and Maisy, two sisters known to most of the TV-watching public as Maddie & Daphne from ABC's Nashville.
