Breaking onto the scene in 2017 with their self titled debut 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”.
