With his big voice and easy style, Bryan White was among the top stars of the mid-‘90s contemporary country explosion. The talented singer/songwriter saw 17 tracks reach Billboard’s “Hot Country Singles & Tracks” chart, including four #1 singles and two additional top 5 hits.
White grew up in Oklahoma but moved to Nashville after high school in search of a career in country music. Signed to Asylum in 1994, his self-titled debut album proved one of 1995’s biggest success stories. The RIAA platinum-certified collection spawned two #1 country hits in “Someone Else’s Star” and “Rebecca Lynn.” He received the Academy of Country Music’s “Top New Male Vocalist of the Year” award as well as the Country Music Association’s prestigious “Horizon Award” for New Artist of the Year.
Between Now and Forever was released in 1996 and, like its predecessor, the album was an undisputed country smash, with another pair of #1 singles, “So Much For Pretending” and “Sittin’ On Go.” White released the RIAA gold-certified The Right Place in 1997, followed two years later by his fourth and final Asylum release, How Lucky I Am.
In addition to his own successful solo career, White has also had a hand in writing and performing on tracks by such country superstars as Diamond Rio, Sawyer Brown, and Shania Twain, with whom he shared vocals on 1998’s top 5 “Hot 100” hit, “From This Moment On.”
