Chris Buck Band

Official Website
Even from a young age, Chris Buck knew he was destined to make waves in the music biz. And fact is, five years since breaking onto the scene with his self-titled, debut album, the singer/songwriter has continued to make a name for himself on the Canadian country stage, and beyond. “I've always done country music, I've never done anything else,” he explains with a smile. “I sang Alan Jackson at my first karaoke contest. It’s a genre and a lifestyle that has always just spoken to me. It’s how I’ve always lived.” Now, with brand-new music on its way, Chris says he’s ready for fans to really experience the kind of artist he’s always wanted to be — one that works hard and lays it all on the line. “I wanted to create an album where every song is something special,” he said. “This album took time, and I think people are really going to be able to see the development, not only as a singer, but a writer, as well. I want everyone to see that hard work does pay off, and this album is the culmination of that.” One of the fastest rising Canadian country acts since the release of the Billboard Top 20 hit That’s When You Know featuring Kira Isabella, Chris saw the track hit hard with over 7 million streams, earning him a gold record and a CCMA Award nomination for Video of the Year. Buck went on to release ALL IN in 2019, his second album, adding to his total five Top 40 singles and over 13 million streams. According to Chris, it’s that slow gradual climb through the ranks which has continued to help him grow over the years, as well as help him understand who is as an artist and performer — and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Kicking off this new era is Can’t Beat The View, a track written with a very personal love story in mind. “At that point I had been dating my girlfriend for about a year and a half, and that’s where the inspiration came from, really,” Chris recalled. “It's basically about how you've seen all the beautiful sights in the world, but your girl beats all of them at the end of the day. I think that’s an idea a lot of people are going to relate to.” In addition to penning and recording some of the strongest material of his career, Chris recently signed with Anthem Music Publishing, as well as new record label Sakamoto Music, distributed by Warner Music Canada. “After almost two years of writing and working harder than ever, that’s a really rewarding thing to be able to share,” he said, adding he’s been lucky enough to have a great relationship with the entire Sakamoto Agency Team over the years. “I’m so excited for this next chapter in my career, and I can't wait for everyone to hear some of the new music I've recorded with award-winning producers Jeremy Stover/Julian King and Dan Swinimer.” RADIO & STREAMING - Over 10 Million Streams on Spotify alone, with over 1.6 million listeners - Over 1.5 million streams on ALL IN Album - Latest single to radio “Holy Ground” released August 2019, featured at #19 on Country Radio Hits Playlist (Apple Music), debuted in Yangaroo’s Most Active Indies for several weeks, and appears on over 700 Spotify-curated & personal playlists - “Holy Ground” music video premiered on - 5 Top 40 hits: "Good Ol Days", "That's When You Know", “Sun Sets Down”, “Leave Your Light On” “Giddy Up” - 1 Top 20 hit: "That's When You Know" (#1 most added radio single for 3 weeks & 6 mos. on SiriusXM’s “Top 10 Most Wanted”) - Currently in the Top 30 most played Canadian country artists on Spotify and CBC Country/SiriusXM - Over 800,000 views on Youtube and over 44,000 social media follows/likes (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) - “That’s When You Know” Video Premiered on CMT Canada &, and song trended on Shazam with over 38,000 followers HIGHLIGHTS - Featured at BreakOut West, JUNOfest, East Coast Music Awards, Country Music Association of Ontario Awards - ALL IN Album Artwork nominated for 2019 CCMA Creative Director of the Year (Feisty Creative) - Seven BCCMA Nominations in 2019 for Entertainer of The Year, Group or Duo of The Year, Interactive Artist of The Year, Album of The Year, Single of The Year (Good Ol’ Days), Songwriter of The Year, and Video of The Year (Good Ol’ Days) - Four BCCMA Nominations in 2018 for Entertainer of the Year, Fans' Choice, Group of the Year, Interactive Artist of The Year - Winners of the 2017 British Columbia Country Music Award (BCCMA) for Album of the Year - Nominated for Video of the Year at the 2017 Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMA) - MusicBC Featured Artists at The 2017 Whistler Film Festival - Three-time Winners (2014, 2015 & 2016) of the BCCMA for Club Act of the Year - Three BCCMA Nominations in 2016 for Group of the Year, Video of the Year and Song of the Year - Winners of 1st prize in the Nashville 2016 UnSigned Only songwriting contest - Winners of the 2015 BCCMA for Group/Duo of the Year
