6 Days until Spring!

Addison Road

Addison Road formed when Jenny Chisolm met Ryan Simmons at Baylor University in Waco, TX. Originally called The Jenny Chisolm band - a few friends from church played with the band as they went to school. It wasn't long before Jenny Chisolm became Jenny Simmons (cause they got married...) and the band became Addison Road, named after a sound tech's baby.

The band led worship at Richardson First Baptist Church and played the youth retreat circuit in the South. In the spring of 2009,the band toured with the Rock and Worship Road Show, along with Jeremy Camp, MercyMe, Hawk Nelson, and Tenth Avenue North. However, Jenny was pregnant with her first baby and thus the group sang only one song per show. Still this was their big break - garnering more fans and connections with other groups.

Last year the band experienced some major set backs while on tour. Their tour van caught fire and they lost clothes, baby toys and sound equipment. However, fans and local churches around the country rallied for the band, buying new clothes and equipment for the band, who missed just a couple of shows during their tour, despite the crippling fire.
