In 2017 Chris Buck burst onto the Canadian Country scene with his self-titled debut album, and the Top 20 hit “That’s When You Know”. The quintessential love song garnered more than 2.8 million streams and over 80 playlist adds on Spotify, a CCMA nomination for Video of the Year, 6 months of “Top 10 Most Wanted” on SiriusXM, and solidified the the band winning Album of the Year at the British Columbia Country Music Awards, among many other accolades. In 2018, Chris Buck Band is back with new music leading off a busy touring season across Canada, and an album release coming in the fall.
Though he played music from a young age, Chris Buck was inspired to go “ALL IN” and pursue a serious career in music after the death of a young musician friend whom he had mentored. For years the band rode the asphalt, growing a grassroots following before signing with Royalty Records / Sony Music Canada in 2016. Chris Buck Band’s self-titled 2017 debut on the label features 4x top 40 country radio hits, “Leave Your Light On”, “Giddy Up”, “Sun Sets Down” and “That’s When You Know” ft Kira Isabella. Along with Chris Buck, the group’s current line-up consists of guitarist Ryan Stead, bassist Matt Generaux and drummer Taylor Allum.
