Country music is full of tradition. Whether it’s mile after mile down a dusty highway or a commitment to write music from the heart, Mark Collie has embraced these traditions while establishing a few of his own since first embarking on a career in music in the 1970’s. In the nearly 25 years since, he has released 8 albums, charted 16 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Charts, and collaborated with a veritable “who’s who’s” of contemporary and classic country music. Today, his most recent album, Alive at Brushy Mountain State Penitentiary, reached #11 on the EuroAmericana Charts for an unprecedented 3 month run.
