Hot Apple Pie is an American country music band founded in 2002 by Brady Seals (lead vocals), Keith Horne (bass guitar), Trey Landry (drums), and Mark "Sparky" Matejka (guitar). Matjeka was replaced in 2006 by Kevin Ray. Seals was initially co-lead vocalist and keyboardist in the band Little Texas until 1997; between then and 2002, he recorded three studio albums, including two for Warner Bros. Records.

Signed to DreamWorks Records Nashville in 2005, Hot Apple Pie released their self-titled debut album that year. This album produced three chart singles on the "Billboard" Hot Country Songs charts, including the #26-peaking "Hillbillies". Due to the collapse of DreamWorks Records in mid-2005, the second and third singles from this album were released on MCA Nashville.


Prior to the foundation of Hot Apple Pie, Brady Seals was one of two lead vocalists (the other being Tim Rushlow) in the country band Little Texas, until 1997, when Seals left Little Texas in pursuit of a solo career.cite web |url= |title=Hot Apple Pie biography |accessdate=2008-04-04 |last=Monger |first=James Christopher |work=Allmusic] Between then and the early 2000s, Seals recorded three albums, and charted six singles of his own.

After deciding that his solo career was not proving successful, Seals decided to form a second band. Guitarist Mark "Sparky" Matejka and drummer Trey Landry, both of whom had backed Seals during his solo career, were recruited, with bass guitarist Keith Horne completing the lineup.cite web |url= |title=Hot Apple Pie Leaves the Oven |accessdate=2008-04-04 |last=Morris |first=Edward |work=Country Music Television] These three musicians all had experience prior to the band's foundation. Matejka had played for Sons of the Desert and Charlie Daniels; Landry, for Rodney Crowell and Suzy Bogguss; and Horne, for Waylon Jennings.

First album

In 2005, Hot Apple Pie signed to DreamWorks Records' Nashville division. That year, they released their debut album, also entitled "Hot Apple Pie". It produced three singles, all of which charted on the "Billboard" Hot Country Songs charts: "Hillbillies", "We're Makin' Up", and "Easy Does It". Due to the dissolution of DreamWorks Records in late 2005, however, these latter two singles were issued on MCA Nashville. The band exited this label in 2006, the same year that Matejka left to join the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.cite web |url= |title=Lynyrd Skynyrd hope to team up with George Jones |accessdate=2008-04-04 |date=2006-06-14 |work=The Rock Radio] Kevin Ray took Matjeka's place in 2006.
