April 9th - Chance Ray & the Good Sinners April 06 2016
Raised on a cattle ranch, Chance and his five siblings knew all to well the hardships of growing up in a blue collar family as his Dad was a life-long stone mason and his Mom worked in a factory. The hardships were softened by a close family bond weaved together with humor, wit, and music. The end result for Chance was songwriting laced with hardship, heartbreak, and humor about life growing up in rural america.
Based in Fort Worth Texas, Chance's band features Kevin Beaird on electrified bass, multi instrumentalist Mark Belding on lead guitar/steel/dobro/mandolin, Chip Scott on rhythm guitar and vocals, and John Doe on drums.
Things have moved quickly for Chance as he has had the opportunity to open for the following Texas/Red Dirt and Nashville artists: Jamey Johnson, Reckless Kelly, Jason Boland, Florida Georgia Line, Stoney LaRue, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Knight, Kevin Fowler, Cory Morrow, Aaron Watson, Brandon Jenkins, Wayne Hancock, Jason Eady
