An “outlaw” in country music is defined as one who plays by their own rules and retains creative freedom. It signifies a solid committment to the craft of making country music on your own terms. Chris Guenther has accomplished that and continues to do so. And, while the major music establishment may frown upon the concept of doing things in an “unrefined”, non-commercial fashion, giving artists complete control of their craft, Chris Guenther continues to make music his way – rough, edgy, and honest. The “5th” marks Chris Guenther’s 15th year in the country music business. This collection presents some of Guenther’s strongest songwriting to date. When Guenther hit the studio in 2012, it was the first time in nearly six years that he was writing all new material. It was a fresh approach, which allowed his maturity as a writer and singer to be showcased. The “5th” also illuminates Guenther’s diverse musical tastes. Again, he delivers a collection of songs ranging from blue collar anthems about economic struggle, personal reflection, and honky tonk ballads that will fit any roadhouse jukebox.
