A native of Mt Laurel, New Jersey, Chris DeStefano is a Grammy Award-winning songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. Chris began singing at a very early age in the acclaimed Academy Boys Choir of Philadelphia. At age 13, he acquired his first guitar and remembers writing his very first songs shortly after. Driven by his passion for music and knack for picking up new instruments, Chris’s talents lead him to Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music where he studied film scoring.
In early 2012 Chris charted his first country single with Jana Kramer’s “Why You Wanna” which peaked at #3 on the Billboard chart. Right on the heels of this success, Chris achieved his first Country chart topper with the song “Good Girl” recorded by another former American Idol winner and Pop-Country superstar Carrie Underwood.
Chris recently hit his stride with Country mega-star Carrie Underwood co-writing her last three #1 songs in a row; “Something Bad” and “Something In The Water” co-written with fellow Hit-Maker Brett James, and “Little Toy Guns” which marked his 10th #1 Country song which was also co-written by Music City Hit-Maker’s Hillary Lindsey.
His other chart-toppers include songs recorded by Billy Currington (“Hey Girl”), Brett Eldredge (“Don’t Ya”), Luke Bryan (“That’s My Kind of Night”), Miranda Lambert (“Somethin’ Bad”), Rascal Flatts (“Rewind”) and Chase Rice (“Ready Set Roll”).
