Chris Turner is a singer/songwriter from Ninety Six, SC and a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Chris made his way to Nashville in May 2010. " Driving in on I-24, I can remember saying to myself, That's a big town with alot of people - where do I start"? Chris would soon learn that Nashville is the biggest, smallest town in the country. "Nashville is a town where everyone knows everyone. I was told early on be careful, because you never know who you are talking to." Playing small restaurants and coffee shops with his guitar Chris started his journey. "I can remember performing in a cafe north of town for two hours for two people. I made three dollars in tips that night. I still carry those three dollars in my guitar case to remind me of my first gig in town and how much of a reality check it was".
Since arriving in Nashville, Chris has released three projects "American Fighter", "What I'm Talkin Bout" and the "American Made" EP. His lead-off single "If You Drink" targets the struggles that vets deal with when suffering from PTSD. The "If You Drink" video portrays it very vividly and how one vet chooses to deal with his fight . Chris' highly energetic show has earned him opportunities to open for such national acts as Cody Johnson, Aaron Tippin, Darryl Worley, Craig Campbell, Trent Tomlinson, Bucky Covington, and Tracy Lawrence to name a few.
