Chris Buck Band
Chris Buck Band is ALL IN, and that’s the name of the new album, releasing February 8, 2019. From auspicious beginnings to becoming a top charting country artist, this Canadian Country band is ‘boots on; let’s do it’, and they do it well. One of the most streamed country music artists in Canada, and a group that’s consistently invited back to events, Chris’ songwriting prowess and love of music shines boldly through his songs, from the upbeat “Giddy Up” to the balladry of the Billboard top 20 radio smash “That’s When You Know”, and the viral country anthem “RDNKN”.
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.
