This week’s featured Homegrown Country artist is Chris Cole from Burlington, NC!
A New York native, Chris moved to North Carolina at the age of 12, where he was raised with a solid work ethic and a love of Country music. Chris fell in love with the songs of Kenny Rogers, Garth Brooks and Tim McGraw before he knew what country music was. He developed an early passion for music and performing in elementary school, where he joined the Choir throughout his entire School career. That passion led him to singing in Karaoke bars, until finally forming his own band in 2007. Now living in Nashville, Chris is a sought after co-writer, a staple in the 2nd & Broadway Bar scene, and a national touring artist.
