Album: All In
Release Date: February 8, 2019
Country rising stars Chris Buck Band are following their hit self-titled debut in 2017 with their sophomore release, All In. The foursome, headed by lead singer Chris Buck, have enjoyed a lot of success in the time between both releases. Their Kira Isabella duet “That’s When You Know” became a Top 20 hit, growing their Spotify numbers into the millions and nabbing a CCMA nomination for the single’s music video. Combine that with the multiple festival performances – including Boots & Hearts, and the Calgary Stampede – and it’s been a successful run so far for Chris Buck Band.
The six-track collection pays homage to the past and the present. Buck puts his sentimental side on display on the heartwarming, chorus-heavy “Holy Ground” and transitions seamlessly into the sweet lookback of “Good Ol’ Days”. Keeping with the throwback vibes, this time with a twang of heartbreak is the guitar-slick “Drink About You”, a classic country heartbreaker with an up-tempo rhythm. “Spin On It” brings a little romance into the equation; before the guys slow things down again, crooning over the memory of a former love on “Driftin”. Before you get too mushy, get ready for the final track – the entertaining and sometimes silly single “RDNKN” is sure to lift your spirits way up – those who aren’t afraid of a little party.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
