I Nine were a pop rock band formed c. 2004. Their hit song, "Seven Days of Lonely," was released through iTunes in September 2007 and has since become popular. Their debut studio album, Heavy Weighs the King, was released on May 6, 2008. The song "Seven Days of Lonely" was put iTunes as the service's "free single of the week" from February 19, 2008 - February 25, 2008. In the April 5, 2008 issue of Billboard, I Nine's second single "If This Room Could Move," which was produced by Nickelback's Chad Kroeger, received a spotlight review by editor Chuck Taylor: "I Nine catapulted out of native South Carolina when Cameron Crowe invited the quartet to appear on the motion pic soundtrack for his Elizabethtown. At year-end 2007, it grazed the adult top 40 top 25 with "Seven Days of Lonely," the debut from upcoming CD Heavy Weighs the King - but that pep pill was a mere taste of the group’s prowess. Sunny follow-up "If This Room Could Move" is garnering hype because Chad Kroeger produced - all well and good but bragging rights are earned on its own merits: an ambrosial vocal from Carmen Keigans, divine start-and-stop tempo, and instrumental elements that blend ‘90s jangle-rock with Brit pop. On record, they sound like a blissful union of Jewel and Sixpence None the Richer - if more Avril Lavigne live. With two exquisite singles in a row, I Nine is counting down to name-brand status. Utterly superlative." The band disbanded when Carmen elected to pursue college and the men joined a new band, Tent Revival.
