It has been a long time coming and Chris has taken a long road to get here but it’s finally time! His debut Album Roads hits shelves this Tuesday, October 30 and we cannot wait!
It still all seems so unreal, I first met Chris almost 4 years ago at my first blogging conference, Blissdom in Nashville. I instantly fell in love with his amazing voice, his blue eyes and his wonderful personality. Over the last 4 years I have watched Chris try to find his way, I have witnessed his triumphs and his struggles, I have had a cameo “appearance” in his Heartless video, I have attended many MannChats, I have supported Chris every step of the way on The Voice, I have formed a friendship with him and I have always know in my heart this day would come. This day when Chris would be a household name, when he would release his first album and when the world would love him as much as I do.
I am so proud I can barely contain myself. When I finally got my hands on his Home For Christmas album the other day I couldn’t stop crying as I listened to it in the car on the way home. I get chills every time he hits a high note or sings falsetto. I can’t wait to hear all of the tracks on Roads…it is going to be AMAZING.
So here is the low down on the albums
