TRAIN is a multi-Grammy Award-winning, diamond-selling band from San Francisco that has had 14 songs on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and 13 albums on the Billboard 200 chart. TRAIN's climb to the top began in 1994, as the original 5-member band tenaciously built a loyal hometown following, leading up to their debut self-titled album released by Columbia in 1998. The tumbling wordplay of "Meet Virginia" gave them their first unlikely radio hit, and 2001's "Drops Of Jupiter" broke them to multi-platinum status thanks to the double-Grammy-winning title song that spent 10 months in the Top 40, has been certified RIAA seven times platinum, and earned the 2001 Grammy Award for "Best Rock Song". The group won another Grammy in 2011 for their global hit "Hey, Soul Sister" from their multi-platinum album "Save Me, San Francisco" (2009),which was the No. 1 best-selling smash and most downloaded single of 2010, achieved RIAA diamond status in 2021 and now eleven times platinum, and in 2022 surpassed one billion streams on Spotify. TRAIN has sold more than 10 million albums and 30 million tracks worldwide, with multiple platinum/gold citations, including three Grammy Awards, twonBillboard Music Awards, and dozens of other honors. They've had 24 Top 10 songs across the Billboard charts and six Top 10 albums on the Billboard 200 chart, including "Drops Of Jupiter" (2001),"My Private Nation" (2003),"California 37" (2012),"Bulletproof Picasso" (2014),"For Me, It's You" (2016),and "A Girl, A Bottle, A Boat" (2017). TRAIN released their critically acclaimed 11th studio album, "AM Gold", in May 2022 and most recently released a new song "I Know" featuring Tenille Townes and Bryce Vine, which marked their 27th career entry on Billboard's Adult Pop Airplay chart.

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO SPEEDWAGON's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of the band's explosive "Hi Infidelity" in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles "Keep On Loving You" and "Take It On the Run". That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA's coveted diamond award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States.
