Interview:

Chase Bryant has made a lot of noise with not a lot of music.

Yet.

With music in his DNA -- the Texas-born Bryant, 24, is the grandson of musician Jimmy Bryant and nephew of Ricochet co-founders Jeff and Junior Bryant -- he's released a pair of EPs and a series of singles, including the Top 20 country hits "Take It On Back" and "Little Bit Of You." The southpaw has also toured with Tim Mcgraw and Brantley Gilbert and has logged plenty of time as a headliner in smaller venues.

The debut full-length album is due out during 2017 and is still a work in progress. But that never keeps Bryant off the road for too long...

Reviewing his 2016, Bryan is generally pleased with everything that's transpired. "It felt good," he says by phone from Denver. "there's lots of things happening, lots of things to be excited about, lots of things I never thought would happen, lots of things to be proud of. Having another hit with 'Little Bit Of You,' and then another one wtih 'Room To Breathe' and getting a third chance at country radio, that's probably the biggest accomplishment, I think. A lot of people don't get that chance, so the fact I got it is pretty cool."

"Room To Breathe," the first single from Bryant's eventual album, shows a different side than his previous releases. "That's me trying to write a song with more sex appeal than I had in the past," he explains. "It's talking to a girl and letting her know I don't want an inch of space between you and me right now. I guess it's showing the sexier side of me. that's something I'm still learning to show; I was always kind of a shy guy, never a guy who was able to say it like that. I think slowly I've learned to say it more."

So what's up with the album? "It should be done by the beginning of the year, hopefully be out next year," Bryant says. "We've cut a bunch of songs; I was 22 years old when we started, now I'm 24 so I've learned a lot from then to now. I want to cut a record that people realized was the best first record I could possible make. The second record, third record will be different, but this is the way I want to cut the first one. I feel like it's me telling my story, although part of me is going, 'Well then, damn, just go ahead and tell it...'"
