Chris Weaver brings a mix of genres to the AMP

Carrollton’s Amp Concert Series concludes this Saturday, October 22, with the Chris Weaver Band.

Nashville-based Chris Weaver mixes southern rock, blues, country and pop while writing original material with some of Music City’s top writers. His band’s sound draws from a wide range of influences.

“The stuff I was into I would say was the Beatles first,” he said. “And then I got into Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac, Crosby Stills and Nash, Joe Cocker, Bob Seger. I wasn’t into country much, but I like the old guys. Songwriters like Willie Nelson and those guys. My influences came from my dad. He had a band for 25 years and a lot of my influences came from his record collection.”

Weaver has written with numerous co-writers, such as Harley Allen (Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson), Stephony Smith (Tim McGraw, Dixie Chicks) and Matt Rogers (Justin Moore, Dustin Lynch) and has toured Brazil with sertanejo stars Fernando and Sorocaba, resulting in the 2017 album and DVD, Live in Brazil.

The band’s website is billing the Carrollton show as “Weaver’s Birthday Bash,” as the date falls on the bandleader’s birthday.
