Chris Hennessee is an East Tennessee native who moved to Nashville in 1998. A singer-songwriter, who’s music can best be described as “Southern Country Blues”, loves the craft of writing songs as well as performing them. Chris has played venues all over the South and as far away as Amsterdam, Holland, but spends most of his time recently in Nashville performing at venues on historic “Lower Broad” as well as songwriter-friendly venues like the Bluebird Cafe and Douglas Corner Cafe. A new member of the RPM music group in Nashville, Chris spends most of his days writing songs by himself or co-writing with the huge pool of talented writers on music row.
His influences range from the classic southern rock sounds of such bands as The Marshall Tucker Band And The Allman Brothers to the stone country sounds of Merle Haggard and Billy Joe Shaver. Chris is also inspired by music greats Alabama, Bruce Springsteen, Dwight Yoakam, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
