Chance McKinney is originally from Lolo, MT. He originally got his start in Seattle, WA, where he met up with local musician, Steve Mitchell. “Steve taught me the basics. He taught me song structure, chord patterns and better guitar techniques. He literally sat down with me two nights a week (for nothing) and passed on whatever knowledge he could (or whatever I was capable of retaining at the time),” recalled Chance. “We used to do a live, acoustic show one night a week for tips and dinner.”
Soon after, Chance took on with some other regional musicians (among them, long-time drummer and friend Brian Bujucich) and formed the duo “Nathan Chance” who got their first big break when they were asked to open for Kenny Chesney. That duo opened for Big n’ Rich, Blaine Larson, SheDaisy, Martina McBride, Little Big Town, Toby Keith, Brooks n Dunn, Kenny Loggins and Gary Alan. In September of 2009, however, “Nathan Chance” disbanded.
Chance has been releasing music for a few years now. His biggest release “Backyard,” has almost 500,000 streams on Spotify alone.
Chance is back with a new single, “Built to Last.” This new single is a classic love song. This release has a catchy melody with a beautiful story as well. If you are looking for a song to add to your Valentine’s Playlist, check out “Built to Last.” Available on all major streaming platforms.
