Singer, picker and songwriter Chris Burton has released his debut CD, The Way I See It. The material is a mix of Chris’ original songs with some less familiar covers. He plays banjo, mandolin, guitar and bass on most tracks, and sings the bulk of the songs, with guest vocalists including Amanda Smith and original Lonesome River Band vocalist Jerry McMillan. Ricky Simpkins and Ron Stewart also guest on fiddle.
Chris is a former first place finisher on banjo at the prestigious Old Fiddlers Convention in Galax, VA and his band (Exit 109) won the Galax band competition in early August of this year. His original songs have started garnering some attention from major bluegrass artists and Chris hopes to see a few recorded by others in the near future.
