Hot Apple Pie Biography
Hot Apple Pie was an American country music band founded in 2002 by Brady Seals, Keith Horne, Trey Landry, and Mark "Sparky" Matejka, who was replaced in 2006 by Kevin Ray. Seals gained notoriety with his former band Little Texas which disbanded in 1997, and after a short solo career Seals formed Hot Apple Pie. The band signed with Dream Works Records Nashville in 2005 and released their self-titled debut album that same year. This album produced three chart singles on the Billboard's Hot Country Songs charts, including the #26-peaking "Hillbillies," the #54-peaking “We're Makin' Up" and the #50-peaking "Easy Does It.” When the Dream Works label dissolved Hot Apple Pie signed with MCA Nashville, releasing two singles on this label and then parting ways in 2006 when “Sparky” left the band. The band finally called it quits in 2008. Seals continues to make music and released a solo album in 2009.
