Red Bow Records recording artist Chase Bryant will be performing at the upcoming Tortuga Music Festival. Bryant will join headliners Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton and Dierks Bentley along with a full line-up of some of the biggest names in country, rhythm and rock.
Presented by Rock the Ocean, the fourth annual Tortuga Music Festival takes place April 15-17, 2016 right on the sand of Fort Lauderdale Beach Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Singer/songwriter Chase Bryant comes from an impressive musical background. His grandfather played keys for Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings, and his uncles co-founded the band Ricochet (“Daddy’s Money,” “Love is Stronger than Pride” and “Ease my Troubled Mind”).
Chase spent 2015 as part of Tim McGraw’s Shotgun Rider Tour. In 2014, he toured with Brantley Gilbert’s Let It Ride Tour. Chase was recently part of the U.S. leg of Kip Moore’s 2016 Wild Ones Tour earlier this year.
The Orange Grove, Texas native’s new single, “Little Bit of You,” led Rolling Stone to name him one of the Ten New Country Artists You Need to Know Now. If you haven’t heard the song yet, it’s a sweet tale of long-distance romance that really captures Chase’s vocal talent.
The “Little Bit of You” video was filmed at tour stops across the U.S. and features live performances from Chase. “Little Bit of You” is a Top 10 VEVO Country video, a CMT Hot 20 video and a GAC Top 20 Country Countdown video.
Chase’s videos have surpassed 89 million plays on Pandora and seven million views on YouTube/VEVO. People magazine deemed Bryant “Sexy … AND sentimental” in the video for his debut single “Take it on Back,” which spent 14 straight weeks on the CMT Hot 20 Countdown, seven weeks on the GAC Top 20 Country Countdown and was a Top 20 Most Watched Video on VEVO TV Nashville.
“Take it on Back” is an upbeat tale of a summer time romance, similar in sound to a Keith Urban tune, and the video features a fun-loving train ride. Bryant’s debut EP is now available on iTunes.
