…” At the end of his rope, looking for hope

But he found this ol’ bar here instead…

… She said, man, I can tell you been going through hell

Well, we’ve all come out of there too

And we live by our own golden rule

If you cheat, hope its death that you’re cheating,

If you lie, lie with someone you love,

If you fight, do it for the right reasons,

If you drink, then come drink one with us…”

When Chris decided to make a video, there was only one choice for him.
It was produced by and stars American actor, former U.S. Army sergeant,
retired mixed martial artist, Randy Couture, “The Natural.”

“Working on the “If You Drink” video was a great learning experience and
an honor for me. As a veteran myself,  getting a chance to work with a
talent like Chris Turner and help him spread a message of hope and shed a
light on the veteran suicide issue in our country is a no brainer,”
said Randy Couture, Seven time MMA Heavyweight Champion and Founder of
Xtreme Couture GI Foundation. “I am very excited to see the song and
video released and proud of what we’ve put together.’

“Chris Turner is the up-and-coming artist to watch for in 2019 if you
love the USA, country music and lyrics that make you wanna grab your
friends and head to the nearest honky tonk for a night out,” reflects
Meyer Music Group President/CEO;Chris Meyer.

sergeant) and his manager Kevin Sanchez (formerly with the Blue Angels),

About Chris Turner:

Chris Turner is a singer/songwriter from Ninety Six, SC
and a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. Chris made his way to
Nashville in May 2010. ” Driving in on I-24, I can remember saying to
myself, That’s a big town with a lot of people – where do I start”?
Chris would soon learn that Nashville is the biggest, smallest town in
the country. “Nashville is a town where everyone knows everyone. I was
told early on be careful, because you never know who you are talking
to.” Playing small restaurants and coffee shops with his guitar Chris
started his journey. “I can remember performing in a cafe north of town
for two hours for two people. I made three dollars in tips that night. I
still carry those three dollars in my guitar case to remind me of my
first gig in town and how much of a reality check it was”. Since
arriving in Nashville, Chris has cut two records “American Fighter” and
“What I’m Talkin Bout”. Chris’ 3rd project the  “American Made” EP is
set to be released January 2019 with his lead-off single from the
project “If You Drink”. Chris’ highly energetic show has earned him
opportunities to open for such acts as Aaron Tippin, Darryl Worley,
Craig Campbell, Trent Tomlinson, Bucky Covington, Will Champlain, And
Tracy Lawrence to name a few.
