"GOLDMINE" is Chris Green Project's brand new third album and It has 14 tracks of fabulous original songs – all written by Chris. 11 new tracks and 3 bonus tracks of radio hits not previously available on CD.
The album contains old country, new country, and some tracks pushing the boundaries of country music. From the tender ballad ‘Little More Time’ to the hard facts of real life on ‘Train Don’t Stop’ and the true story of Wild Bill Hicock in ‘Good Gambler’ this album captures the spirit of American country music
Chris Green is lucky to be alive! After 3 serious open heart operations, this gave Chris the idea to write a song based on his heart valve replacement when he later discovered it was made in Austin, Texas. This great catchy song ‘Little Bit of Texas’ is also on the new ‘Goldmine’ album.
Chris Green Project’s second album "BEAUTIFUL WORLD" has proved to be very popular. Written in varying styles, the album captures heartfelt ballads - such as "Broken Heart" and "Tender Is The Night" which was performed live in the finals of the International Song of Peace in Tipperary, Ireland.
The title track ‘Beautiful World’ was also voted one of the five finalists for the UKCountryRadio.com Listeners' Club Award 2013.
"ROAD OF MANY COLOURS" is Chris Green Project's debut album which contains a rich mix of twelve songs from the popular, catchy "Which Side Of The Bed" to the moving Hurricane Katrina tribute song "White Magnolias", which also has a sympathetic music video on YouTube.
The video has been endorsed by the New Orleans Katrina Commemoration Foundation in the US and their comments are on a special Katrina Tribute page, together with others from around the world on the website.
Several of the songs on all 3 albums have achieved success in the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest and have proved the credibility of Chris Green's songwriting.
