LESS OF ME album review - Nashville, TN - January, 2017

   Whether you’re watching Chris Golden perform on stage or chatting with him off stage, it’s obvious he has a passion for sharing the gospel and encouraging people. Golden is a gifted communicator and nowhere is that more evident than his latest album “Less of Me". He lends his warm, evocative voice to such classic tunes as “Life’s Railway to Heaven” and “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms”, infusing timeless songs of faith with a fresh sense of commitment and enthusiasm.  The highlights on this collection are numerous including the Glen Campbell-penned title track and his take on the Oak Ridge Boys hit “Thank God for Kids”, which he delivers with his father, The Oaks’ William Lee Golden.  “What Salvation’s Done for Me,” co-written by his brother Rusty, is a compelling number with an uplifting message.  It’s a powerful collection of songs, and a must have record for anyone who loves country gospel music delivered with authority and heart.

    At a recent appearance with Restless Heart at the CHRISTMAS 4 KIDS concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the band asked me to come down front and sing a song. Since it was a song made famous by my father, halfway through I asked him to come join us. It was a special surprize for the sold out crowd.  I also joined Marshall Tucker Band for the finale along with Restless Heart, Shenandoah and Craig Wayne Boyd.

A true labor of love, I opened my own shoebox full of memories to put together this sentimental walk down memory lane.  Shoebox video was filmed at the Historic Palace Theater in Gallatin, TN and features family photos and home movies from the Golden vault. It aired coast to coast on ZUUS Country Network and was named 'Breakout Artist' being featured in the TOP 20 Countdown. It can now be seen on The Heartland Network, Blue Highway  TV and more.  Check your local listings.

Meet the Family 

Working with my children has been the highlight of this new chapter of my life. They do not always get to travel with me, but when they share the stage, it is magical. All three are extrememly talented and have music and CDs of their own available.

I am so very proud of the work we did together on Elizabeth's debut album.  God had his hand on it from the beginning. What started out as a little homemade gift of music for the grandparents turned into having her video played nationwide. With a borrowed camera we went to the farm down the road from our house to shoot a photo for the album cover. When the skies turned such beautiful colors we grabbed a boom box and started shooting video.  God provided a most amazing lightning show behind us as we filmed. We took the footage to a then college student Nick Eagles who helped edit the video. Within a week it was airing on ZUUS Country Network as their 'Breakout Artist' and was featured in the TOP 20 Countdown.  You can find out more about Elizabeth at
