About Chris Taylor
Originally from Owensboro, Kentucky, Chris was born to sing and always dreamed of making his mark on country music. After moving to Evansville, Indiana during his high school years, his family knew that he would someday be a star and supported his aspirations along the way.
Now based in Syracuse, NY with his wife, Jill, and two daughters, Chris and his band have thousands of extremely loyal and die-hard fans. With over 5,000 followers on Facebook and more on MySpace, Chris performs nearly one hundred gigs a year to usually sold-out venues.
As Chris’ music career grows, he is supported heavily by Syracuse area radio stations, businesses and newspapers. Live radio performances by The Custom Taylor Band, on-air personalities giving Chris accolades, newspaper columnists writing about his latest accomplishments and businesses lending their resources demonstrates this tremendous support.
In October 2010, in front of over 1,500 people, Chris was nominated for and won the prestigious Syracuse Area Music Award (SAMMY) for Best Country Music CD, “Down At The Honky Tonk”, his 2009 original album that features songs written by Chris and others.
