BUDDY WRIGHT is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. Buddy plays guitar-driven pop music stemming from a wide array of influences like Shawn Mendes, Ed Sheeran, Khalid, Coldplay, and Kings of Leon.

Growing up in Texas, Buddy worked at his family-owned sand and gravel surface mine while also helping run their cattle ranch. He was recruited to play university football in central Texas but was sidelined by multiple injuries. Upon returning home to attend Texas A&M University at Corpus Christi, songwriting became a catharsis to fill the void of a lost dream.

After performing live for the first time at a Corpus Christi Songwriters showcase, Buddy knew he had found his calling. He began to open for country music acts at venues in south Texas while perfecting his craft and completing his degree. Upon earning a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in December of 2016, he made the move to Nashville. Since then, Buddy has been developing songs for his debut EP and touring the country from Nashville to Los Angeles.
