Echo, the latest independent release from Chancey Williams, immediately charted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart for the Mountain Region. It was no surprise. The Wyoming native and his “Younger Brothers Band,” have relentlessly toured the Western United States, developing a rabid fan base not seen from the Cowboy State since Chris LeDoux. In fact, Chancey Williams and LeDoux are the only two people to ride in the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo (one of the most famous in the world, the touted “Daddy of ‘Em All) and play its main stage as a major entertainer. The band has shared the stage with dozens of artists, including Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Craig Morgan, Rodney Atkins, Brantley Gilbert and Thompson Square. They’ve also enjoyed bills with Texas contemporaries Casey Donahew and Stoney LaRue. But, Williams says, nothing beats the opportunity to have occasionally opened for their heroes, legends like LeDoux, Merle Haggard and Dwight Yoakam.
Chancey Williams was raised on a ranch near the small town of Moorcroft, Wyoming where his mom still teaches school, his dad and brother still ranch, and his other brother is the head coach of a notable wrestling team. The beautiful family ranch is adjoined on one side by Keyhole Lake, a regional tourist attraction. “But we hardly knew it,” joked Williams, “we really couldn’t afford a boat and my dad had us working all the time, anyway, so we hardly ever went over there!” It was a strong family background and work ethic that Chancey Williams credits with pretty much everything he has. Chancey and his father, Dennis, were both state champion wrestlers in High School, Chancey for two years in a row. He also followed his dad as a saddle bronc rider, going to the National High School Rodeo Finals, the College National Finals and even winning a couple of rounds at Cheyenne Frontier Days. While avidly supporting his musical dream, his parents also put great emphasis on education. In fact, Chancey Williams has a total of four degrees, including a Bachelor Degree in Political Science and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from the University of Wyoming.
Chancey and his drummer, lifelong friend Travis DeWitt, started the Younger Brothers Band with the humble initial goal of entering a high school talent contest. The pair had no idea it would lead to wedding receptions, small fairs (then big fairs), small bars (then large clubs) and become a fulltime career. In 2008 they were joined by the amazing harmonies and lead guitar of Wyatt Springsteen and then Brooke Latka with stunning fiddle and a 3rd part to their harmonies. More recently, Jack Robbins joined the band on bass. The result is Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band, a rowdy, raucous, unapologetic, memorable stage show that is on the road pretty much all the time.
Somewhere along the way, playing for friends became playing for wild fans. The studio album “Honky Tonk Road” was released in 2008, “Highway Junkie” in 2011 and, recently, the Billboard Heatseeker Charting, “Echo.” Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers have sold, between digital downloads and CD sales, more than 40,000 records, almost unheard-of for an independent artist without the aid of major distribution or a record label.
2014 is set to be the breakout year for Chancey Williams. After wrapping up 2013 playing in Las Vegas for the National Finals Rodeo, the band returned home for a moment of rest before embarking on a year that will include almost 170 tour dates. First, Chancey is currently slated to join the cast of a new A&E Reality Television pilot tentatively titled “Real Cowboys of Wyoming,” when it shoots the initial episode in April. May will bring a radio single release from “Echo,” and a tour that will include numerous state fairs, festivals, the legendary Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and, for the third consecutive year, the main stage at Cheyenne Frontier Days. “We just love to play, travel, record our music and represent the great state of Wyoming,” said Williams, “it is just in our blood, I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
