If you've been listening to KNUE lately (and I know you have), you've probably heard a song by this young country artist, Charlie Worsham. His single, "Could It Be," is gaining popularity among listeners and on the country charts.   Charlie Worsham is a fresh-faced Mississippi guy who has loved playing music since he was a boy. From the Opry at age 12to the local Missionary Baptist Church to the back-road blues joints he wasn't even supposed to know about (much less play in).

His musical influences ranged from Don Williams to Tom Petty to Earl Scruggs. Charlie was also in Nashville band, KingBilly, singing harmonies and playing mandolin until 2010.

Charlie's is currently writing and recording to finish out his major label debut album for Warner Music Nashville. After studying at Berklee School of Music in Boston, he moved south to Nashville. For the last two years, he has split his time between writing songs, being a studio musician for other artists and playing his music live across the country with Taylor Swift, East Texas' own Miranda Lambert and others.

That's just some of the reasons why Charlie Worsham is this week's KNUE "Artist Spotlight" of the Week.
