Charlie is generally recognised and categorised as a country singer, however, as his regular supporters will tell you, country music actually only accounts for a very small part of his concert repertoire and music catalogue in general.
It is of course understandable that Charlie has been labelled as a country singer, as he has won just about every award possible in the UK country scene. A list of awards too numerous to mention in full, he has won Best Songwriter, Best Song, Best Male Vocalist, Best Album and International Country Album of the year. He has also received a nomination as Best Global Country Artist in the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville. Many of his albums have topped the country charts as well as getting into the British pop charts.
Charlie is a performer who is difficult to categorise, as he covers many areas of the musical landscape from beautiful ballads, to folk, blues, country, rock ‘n’ roll, pop, gospel and anthem. If you go into a music shop you may find Charlie’s music in the Country or the Easy Listening section, but this belies the nature of a man who is uncomfortable with labels, a man that embraces varied musical forms. Anyone who has listened to Charlie’s music would agree that he shows a depth of compassion and understanding which seems almost incongruous to his simplistic yet captivating style.
