Chase Bryant Kicks Off Concert Season at Thirsty Cowboy


Just a week shy of his 23rd birthday, Chase Bryant may still seem like a newcomer to country music.  But, music is more of a family business for Bryant.  His grandfather played with the late Roy Orbison and Waylon Jennings and his uncles, Jeff and Junior, formed the successful country band Ricochet in the ’90’s.

The Orange Grove, Texas native loved the fact that he was surrounded by music his entire life and was ready to make his own mark on the music business.  His debut EP in 2014 produced the singles “Take It On Back” and “Little Bit of You” and both became top ten hits on the country airplay charts  His current single “Room To Breathe” was released to radio in July and is the lead off single for his first full length album which will be released in 2017.

The latest single is a little different than most of the songs you are hearing on the radio these days and it’s a sultry sound but something that rings true for most listeners.

“I think there’s a bug about it, just something that gets in your ear. The melodic hook of that song just kind of sticks with you,” Bryant said in an interview this summer.

Growing up Bryant had many musical influences that included Conway Twitty, Merle Haggard, Tom Petty, Vince Gill, Bob Wills, Steve Wariner and Bryan Adams.  But it was the sounds of other songs that brought him to where his music is today. “Keith Urban’s Love, Pain & The Whole Crazy Thing and records by Sarah Buxton and Jedd Hughes did it,” he says. “I knew I wanted to play mainstream country – I always knew. But those records told me that I could be that and still write guitar riffs that would stick in somebody’s head.”

The sounds of those songs and the hooks and guitar riffs will definitely be a part of his show at Thirsty Cowboy on Friday, September 30.  The singer, songwriter and producer has his own style that is reflective in his music and in his guitar playing.  Bryant is left handed but often plays a right handed guitar upside down.

Much of his show will also include tracks from his upcoming album. Bryant states that the crowd is the best judge of the songs and really the best way for him to know if he is on the right track.

So far, he has had nothing but a positive response and tries to emote the same feeling live as he does in the studio.  For him the stage is where he feels he gets to be himself as an entertainer, singer and guitar player. And according to Bryant, in that order.

Chase Bryant will be performing at the Thirsty Cowboy in Medina, Ohio on Friday, September 30 at 8:00pm.  Tickets are $12 (plus service fee $2.95) and are available at
