performs an eclectic blend of original and cover music that combines elements of bluegrass, traditional country, rockabilly and rock, which has been described as Johnny Cash meets the Texas Hill Country with Dwight Yoakam at the bar.
Charles has charmed country music lovers all over the Texas Hill Country. He shared the stage with country music legends such as Johnny Rodriguez, Junior Brown, and David Allan Coe, and some of today’s hottest country picks including Casey Donahew, The Cody Johnson Band and The Locash Cowboys.
Charles and his band have appeared on the KENS 5 morning show “Great Day SA” and played at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo as well as the Rodeo BBQ Cookoff at Sea World. He caught the attention of Texas country music legend Johnny Bush and had his songs played on Jim Beal’s radio show on KSYM and performed live on KUIW on the John Michael “Maestro” radio show. Additionally, Charles played on KJ97, San Antonio’s #1 Country Music Station.
