Formed in Raleigh 10 years ago, the home-grown Chatham County Line has traveled throughout the U.S. and Europe, winning awards in the bluegrass world and the singer-songwriter world. Dave Wilson, the band's lead singer and guitarist, does most of the group's songwriting. John Teer (guitar, fiddle, mandolin, back-up vocals), Chandler Holt (banjo, dobro, guitar), and Greg Readling (bass, pedal steel guitar, back-up vocals) provide the foundation for Wilson's creations while adding harmony and texture that make the music shine.
