Lightnin' Strikin' National TV

Happy New Year Lightnin' Bugs! Hope this finds you all well and happy and peaceful in 2017. I'm already busier than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs! But it's great to be alive and well and making music in yet another brand new year...

Our "Song of the Mountains" TV concert performance has been airing on over 300 affiliates across the US and Canada, and will be airing tomorrow night (Saturday 1/7) in my stomping ground of East Tennessee.

Blue Chip Records is proud to announce the release of Lightnin' Charlie's powerhouse new CD "COVENANT"!

Our new CD "COVENANT" is officially out and about and is making noise in all parts of the world. Stay tuned as I will be passing along lots more about this in the coming weeks.

Consisting of eight originals and four covers, COVENANT showcases LC's soulful singing, his world-renowned songwriting, and his award-winning, fiery blues guitar playing on an incredibly diverse body of songs, and features some truly great guest artists---guys who have recorded and toured with the likes of Elvis, Paul McCartney, Roy Orbison, Muddy Waters, and more. If COVENANT doesn't sound like any gospel record you've ever heard before, you're right! Dig the Good News Blues with COVENANT by Lightnin' Charlie.

Purchase COVENANT CDs or mp3s at cdbaby, itunes, google play, amazon, etc.
