Chris Colston is an up-and-coming artist from Texas who is following in the footsteps of artists like Parker McCollum and Koe Wetzel in gaining national notoriety. Chris joins Country Music Made Me to talk about the moments that led to his passion for chasing a career in music, like jamming with his friends at the local church, performing on the Texas Opry Circuit, earning a residency at the Republic Icehouse in Tyler Texas, and releasing his first album "Guitar Playin' Outlaw". Chris and Brendan talk about how important the support of the close knit community within the Red Dirt music scene has been, what it's been like playing with and getting to know his musical idols like Randy Rogers, Codey Canada, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Josh Abbot, William Clark Green and Stoney LaRue, and why things may have been much different if he hadn't met fellow musician Koe Wetzel early in his journey. Chris explains the process of entering the Nashville scene from Texas, what it's been like transitioning to the world of co-writing rather than always writing by himself, and the goals he has for his career outside of his home state. Finally, Chris talks about his new album "Boy Like Me" and how he hopes to develop as a songwriter and eventually co-write every track he records.
