About Chris Higbee
Born and raised on the family farm in Southwestern, Pa., Chris has always loved music, and the feeling is mutual. Chris took up the fiddle at the very young age of 7 and has since shared the stage as an expert with country music legends like the Fiddle King Himself, Charlie Daniels, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Justin Moore, Blake Shelton and Chris Jansen, just to name a few.
Shortly after earning his bachelor’s degree, Chris took to the stage and the road professionally. In 2013 he released his debut self-titled album, featuring the song “Fiddles Rock”. His ethics, second to none, would produce three more full length albums and an ep, all within 6 short years.
His sophomore album, “Ready or Not” was released in 2015, followed shortly by his third full length project, “Super Hero”. Although Chris has written and etched songs about his family in the past, Super Hero would feature his son, Alexander on the fiddle as well as vocals, on the title track, they penned together.
Most recently Chris has boosted his social media network into the millions with his talent and personality. He used his talent and charisma to promote his shows and grow his fan base exponentially.
As busy as Chris is following his dream and promoting his exploding career, he is an involved father of three and devoted husband. Son Alexander joins his dad on stage and is quickly becoming a star. Along with Chris’s four albums, they have both been in the studio working on new material. “I like a Girl”, written by Chris and performed by Alex is already a crowd favorite and very much anticipated as Alex’s first single. “One Night in New Orleans”, is Chris’s summer release (mid June).
Chris’s wife Melissa, member of the band and very talented vocalist, can be found on stage right next to Chris, all the while holding an impressive rank of Command Sergeant Major in the US Army! The Iraq Combat Veteran and mother of three is Chris’s biggest fan, co-artist and supporter of Chris Higbee.
