WATCH VIDEO EXCLUSIVELY ON COMPLETE COUNTRY
September 19, 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Following the success of his 2017 smash ‘That’s When You Know’, Chris Buck Band is back with his newest country anthem – RDNKN, out to country radio now and available to stream everywhere October 5th. Emphasizing that laidback, easy going lifestyle, the music video for RDNKN is available today exclusively on Complete Country.
RDNKN was born out of a partnership Chris Buck started with a close friend on a lifestyle brand merchandise company. Having sold thousands of their signature hats, adorned with RDNKN licence plates, across North America, Buck wanted to write a song that embodied the country lifestyle of having fun and not taking life too seriously. The new music video depicts just that – enjoying the lazy days of summer with an afternoon on the lake fishing and drinking followed by a raging backyard barbeque and bonfire jam.
Breaking onto the scene in 2017 with their debut, self-titled album, Chris Buck Band quickly became one of the fastest rising Canadian country acts with the release of their Billboard Top 20 hit ‘That’s When You Know’ featuring country darling Kira Isabella. The track skyrocketed with over 3.6 million streams and over 100 Spotify playlist adds in addition to its CCMA Award nomination for ‘Video of the Year’. Since then, Chris Buck Band has performed across the country on some of Canada’s biggest festival stages including Boots & Hearts, Rockin’ River Music Fest, The Calgary Stampede and Manitoulin Countryfest.
With more new music and an EP in the works, RDNKN is just the beginning of another successful run for Chris Buck Band. For more information upcoming music and tour dates, please visit www.chrisbuckband.com

CHRIS BUCK BAND TAKE HOME ALBUM OF THE YEAR AT THE 2017 BC COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS

So honoured and grateful to have even been recognized! I co-wrote on every song on this album, this means even more because of that. Won’t forget this one – Chris Buck
Alongside this incredible accolade, band member Phil Puxley won Special Instrument of the Year for Banjo and Jeff Johnson of Baileyway Entertainment took home Producer of the Year.
It’s an honour to get to share in the creative processes and recorded journeys of the artists and bands I produce. They include me in their musical vision and I will always value that bond of trust and do my best for everyone I work with. More than winning an award like a CCMA or BCCMA is the friendships and the community that growth that comes from collectively celebrating this amazing music business. – Jeff Johnson

ABOUT ROBYN & RYLEIGH
R&R, as their friends and family lovingly tag them, are true Canadian country girls in daily life, growing up in a serene setting on the family property in B.C.’s Fraser Valley. When not on a stage or in a recording studio, Robyn can be found tinkering on her own car, while Ryleigh loves quadding, and once beat some farm boys in a tractor race at a fair after one of their gigs.
This sister duo is also very passionate about staying fit, eating healthy nourishing foods and sharing their love for health and fitness.
Robyn and Ryleigh are authentic country girls, singing about fast cars, boys, and hot summer nights. Part mud, part makeup, part glamorous, part funny. The perfect recipe for a couple of girls you’d like to get to know better.
The BCCMA is an organization with the focus to promote, foster and encourage the development and public appreciation of, and interest in, the British Columbia Country Music Community.
