Karabas teams up with CMA legend Eddie Bayers

Eddie Bayers has partnered with Chris to be his producer/plugger.  "I was always confident in the quality of my songs, but was struggling with the production." Chris says.  "I started to chase the style I was hearing on radio, and dug myself into a creative rut."  One day I got a call from Eddie, who had played on some of my demos and he said "That stuff you have been doing... it's coming back in style... don't change a thing.. let's harness it.. it's time."   Chris recalls, it gave new life to my writing career... Eddie's confidence, in me ,gave me new focus on doing what I do...not mimicking what the other guys are doing.  It's been a great collaboration.  Eddie's history in the business is incredible (15x CMA Musician Of The Year, Country Music Hall Of Fame, Grand Ole Opry Music Director) . but when you work with a person who is so genuine, and kind... well that is inspiring on a whole other level."  We've been working out of Loud Studios in Nashville and doing a lot of remote stuff.  With Covid easing up, I'm looking forward to a lot more face to face time with Eddie... he's an incredible talent, mentor, and above all, a great person."

Chris was lucky to grab session time with Jim "Moose" Brown a few days before heading off to tour with Bob Seeger
