A famous country songwriter named Harlan Howard once said, “Country music is three chords and the truth.” Well for The Chris Gardner Band, that’s exactly what inspires their popular country-rock lyrics. Real life and the truth.
With the release of their debut album, The Answer, in April 2012, Nashville recording artist, The Chris Gardner Band, is just getting started. Excitement is buzzing over their first single, “Everybody Loves My Baby” and managing over 150 shows per year, it’s sure to be heard! With their country-rock lyrics, soulful harmonies, high-energy performances and vulnerability on stage, the Chris Gardner Band always gives their best
Six incredible musicians whose talents excel alone but thrive together are taking huge steps towards flourishing careers in music. Opening up for major country artists such as Chris Young, Luke Bryan, Love and Theft, and Sarah Buxton, has been very rewarding for the band. They also competed in the 2009 Colgate Country Showdown all the way to state championships in Nevada, and entertained 10,000 people at the 2010 Monster Truck Show at Arco Arena in Sacramento.
The energy coming off the stage when The Chris Gardner Band performs is phenomenal. “They [the fans] know us for our show,” says Gardner, who admires the talent of Third Day, Zac Brown Band, and Keith Urban. “We are a humble band and we truly love what we do. We always give one hundred and fifty percent, whether we’re performing for two people or a crowd of 10,000.”
Supporting local communities is very important to the band members and they continue to help with Relay for Life, Make a Wish Foundation, and Toys for Tots. “We try to do a benefit anytime anyone is in need,” says Gardner.
