chris turnerBoomerocity loves turning y’all on to new up-and-coming talent. Whether the genre is rock, blues, country, or R&B, we love bringing those “best kept secrets” coming up through the musical ranks. Country artist Chris Turner is such a person.

A Marine Corps veteran, Chris Turner is raising awareness for PTSD and veterans issues through music. Turner has just released his latest single, "All in the Same Boat" — the first single from his upcoming EP, due soon. Turner uses his platform to help raise awareness and be a voice for his fellow veteran community.

In 2019, Turner joined forces with actor and UFC legend, Randy Couture, in the fight against PTSD. His tireless efforts to bring awareness has led to media coverage by major outlets such as Forbes Magazine and Today in Nashville, and he has partnered with a variety of non-profits including Xtreme Couture, GI Foundation, Crosswinds Foundation, Together for The Good, 911 Remembered and Irreverant Warriors.

Hailing from Ninety Six, SC, Turner made his way to Nashville in 2010, determined to break out as a singer/songwriter. He started playing small restaurants and coffee shops for tips, before graduating to some of Music City’s most prestigious stages, such as the famed Bluebird Cafe, John Rich’s Redneck Riviera, Tootsies, The Nashville Palace and more. His increased exposure provided the opportunity to share the stage with some of the biggest names in Country Music, including Cody Johnson, Aaron Tippin, Darryl Worley, Craig Campbell, Trent Tomlinson, Bucky Covington, and Tracy Lawrence, to name a few.

Turner's upcoming EP is the follow-up to his 2019 release, American Made, which reached #16 on the iTunes Country Chart, and featured the single, "If You Drink,” which spawned a viral music video featuring Randy Couture and actress Mindy Robinson.
