Buddy Wright is “Here And Now”!
Buddy Wright has just released his second solo single, “Here And Now”, the follow up to his debut, “A Little Off”. Buddy tells us: “The message of this song is about getting rid of all the distractions and focusing on what really matters. I wrote this song about my ongoing struggle of finding a meaningful relationship in midst of this modern media and image obsessed world. I was in a lonely place where everyone around me seemed to care more about how things appeared to the outside world than how things actually were”.
Born on the outskirts of Corpus Christi, TX, Buddy Wright spent his childhood working at his family-owned sand and gravel surface mine while also helping run their cattle ranch. At 17 he began to teach himself to play guitar as a way to cope with family troubles. An accomplished athlete however, a career in music was never on the radar. He was recruited to play university football in central Texas and was quickly sidelined by multiple injuries. He made the decision to return home to attend Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi and took to songwriting as a catharsis to fill the void of a lost dream.
After performing live for the first time at a Corpus Christi Songwriters showcase, Buddy knew he had found his calling. He began to open for country music acts at venues across south Texas while perfecting his craft and completing his degree. Upon earning a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in December of 2016, he made the move to Nashville. Since then Buddy has been touring the country from Nashville to Los Angeles. His debut single “A Little Off” blends the nostalgic storytelling nature of his traditional country music roots with his new found love of pop music.
