February is here, the local groundhog confirmed we will have at least 6 more weeks of winter, and just a little before that, Chris will return to touring! Check out the Concerts page, and plan a trip out to welcome him back to the stage.
The concerts scheduled November 18-February 28 are being rescheduled so Chris may return home to address an immediate medical matter. We regret any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
Chris was recently interviewed for Feast Your Ears!, a documentary about the legendary Washington, DC radio station WHFS.
One of the most beloved stations in the history of FM radio, WHFS was a station that championed vernacular American music absent in standard rock programming at the time – mixing in blues, jazz, comedy, country, bluegrass, folk, cajun, and zydeco. The filmmakers have launched a Kickstarter program to help finance the final stages of the project. If you’re interested in helping the film reach its audience, click here.
Although she calls it a Bonnie Raitt song, singer Kelly Clarkson recently covered Chris’s song “Love Me Like a Man” at a concert in Nashville. Watch the video on YouTube.
