Cole Risner has been writing songs since he was 13 years old and hasn’t been able to stop. In Cole’s short time on the Texas Country scene, he has already left his mark. Sharing the stage with Reckless Kelly, Hayes Carll, Radney Foster, The Damn Quails, and Chris Knight just to name a few.
"When you listen to the flow of Cole's lyrics, you can detect a little Lyle. Throw in a touch of Robert Earl Keen's wit, and you'll get a feel for where Risner's songwriting is rooted--right here in Texas!"
-Gus Gustafson; Crossroads Music Company
He has also been a top 20 finalist in the Wildflower Songwriting contest, a semi-finalist in the Rusty Weir Competition, and placed 2nd in the Texas Star competition.
“Cole’s songwriting ability sets him apart from his peers, with tunes that hit all the right chords musically and lyrically.”
-Matt Meinke, Notably Texan 88.9 KETR
With a solid band and songwriting that is driven by catchy hooks and melodies, Cole has what it takes to remain on the scene for many years to come.
"It’s hard to catch a true crooner on stage. Song warrior Cole Risner resonates that quality, whether he’s paying musical tribute to his grandfather or delivering a waltz for the dancing crowd. Risner effortlessly conveys a deep conviction and emotion that allows the listener to inhale the songs."
