Chris Knight

Chris Knight is a singer/songwriter from the tiny mining town of Slaughters, KY, whose self-titled debut album invited comparisons to Steve Earle and John Prine. Knight started on his musical journey at just three years old when he requested a plastic guitar for Christmas. At 15, he became more serious when he began teaching himself dozens of John Prine songs on his older brother's guitar. After earning an agriculture degree from Western Kentucky University, Knight went to work in land reclamation, but in 1986 he heard Earle on the radio and decided to try his hand at writing songs.

After six years of perfecting his story songs about the downtrodden of small-town America, Knight came to Nashville and won a coveted spot on a songwriters' night at the Bluebird Cafe. Performing songs like "Framed," which would eventually wind up on his debut album, he caught the ear of Frank Liddell, who signed him to a publishing deal with Bluewater Music. Knight went back home and kept writing, and when Decca Records hired Liddell for an A&R position, Knight got a record deal. When Decca released his self-titled debut in 1997, Knight still lived in a house trailer on 90 acres in Slaughters. He has since become a popular name in Americana music, releasing four more albums: his 1998 self-titled sophomore effort, 2001's Pretty Good Guy, 2003's Jealous Kind, and 2006's Enough Rope. ~ Brian Wahlert, Rovi

Chris Knight writes AMAZING lyrics. Great Appalachian stories. My family comes from Eastern Kentucky, and most still live there. A few cousins worked the coal mines. His songs hit home...somet i m e s with a harsh reality. Play more of his songs Pandora!

Great artist and songwriter. Music that the common man can relate with. Not the bubble gum country you here on the radio. His music is quality blended with creativity .

Saw him last night at Blaine's Pub, San Angelo TX. As real as it gets - he is, was, and will always be a favorite. His music tells real stories that speak real heartbreak yet always leave me feeling hopeful.

I discovered CK about 7 years ago and i never get tired of hearing him his songs bring chills to my spine every song is a story that we can relate to in some way full of truth and honesty whether it good or bad

The beauty of discovering new artists that aren't mainstream corporate bought and paid for! I love that he is not on the radio or tv! You find the best when you don't let mainstream tell you what you like! Love you Chris Knight!

Brandauuu - I couldn't agree more! I'm especially digging Lucero. Chris Knight and Ryan Bingham are great too!

This guy, Ryan Bingham and Lucero are 3 amazing artists that surprise me why they aren't on the radio but then again I'm glad they aren't because they need to stay the way they are now- amazing.
