"Wasted" is a reflection of Nashville legend Chris Gantry's long and winding path through this world - but the vitality of the songwriting stops the music from becoming simple elegy or denouement. Chris' crafty old-school way with a tune and his smooth melodicism gives him the space to tell his tales with ease; lovers, losers and madmen are depicted with warmth and empathy, a genuine love of the human spirit and the singing chops of a man who's known tens of thousands of nights of song. His lucid guitar playing and Jerry David DeCicca's production sound makes for yet another unique chapter in the Chris Gantry catalog - a potent new entry, five decades and more down the line - the improbability of which makes it pure Gantry, all the way.

"Wasted" is a testament to the career and talent of Chris Gantry - the individualism that set him apart from his earliest days and his openhearted embrace of the unknown. Mark your calendars for forthcoming select tour dates in the US! Nashlantis drops on 7/26.
