Genre: Country
Location: Cleveland, AL
Websites: www.reverbnation.com/chrisposeyband

Bio: Chris Posey is an all-american cowboy from Alabama. Thats the darn truth and if that aint country than please tell me what is. Garth Brooks can go back to L.A. for all I care, just as long as Chris and the other Alabama boys stay put and keep on givin us some real country music down here. Part of the underground country crew that has been rockin the beer joints in Alabama for the over a decade, Chris has a style all his own and a vibrant country voice that will shake any old honky tonk to its foundations. Comin up with the likes of Alabama legends such as Tony Brook and Adam Hood, Chris has a huge following down here and a right true philosophy about music here in God's country. He believes that good music should stay down here in Alabama and rightfully so. The more musicians the merrier, and Alabama is a great scene for all types of music. Alabama has had its share of musical greats, like Hank Williams, Nat King Cole, Percy Sledge, The Commodores, Wet Willie, Erskine Hawkins, Sun Ra and Lionel Hampton. Alabama is also the home of the Muscle Shoals sound studio that was the premier  recording studio in the nation back in the day. Bands and musicians like the Allman Bros. Rod Stewart, The Rolling Stones, Bob Seeger, Bob Dylan and even more recently The Black Keys have all recorded there.

Chris Posey believes that Alabama can be home to another great musical renaissance like back in the 60's, and I'm right there with him. Alabama is smack dab in the middle of great music hubs like Nashville, Atlanta, New Orleans, Memphis and the Mighty Mississippi. Chris Posey writes a good bit of material about his home state and he is writing from the heart. He ain't writing an album for Taylor Swift so he can bank on royalties off music he doesn't care about. He writes what is real to him and that is solid badass country! In a time when we are inundated by pure clearchannel crap. Stupid overproduced pop they call country and annoying rap is all there is on the radio. What ever happened to the good country like Hank, Johnny Cash, Johnny Paycheck, George Jones, Townes Van Zandt, Kris Kristofferson, Willie, Waylon and the boys? Well the answer ain't on the radio, its down here in Alabama and Chris Posey's on the front lines. Chris Posey is real country, for those of you who still know what that is.
