About Benji Harris
Since moving to Nashville in 2009, this Dallas native has found a welcomed home on Music Row. His country/rock trio Scarletta (2009-2014) had a Top 30 radio hit in 2012, and a popular music video in high rotation on CMT. They gained critical acclaim from Billboard and the Country Music Association as a top act to watch. He even found viral success and salutes from country headliner Jake Owen with a trio of parodies celebrating his daughter’s birth. Since leaving the band in 2014, Benji has lent his instrumental and vocal talents to projects and tours for stars like Sam Hunt, Jana Kramer, Cassadee Pope and Carly Pearce. Pope’s fans see Benji in the spotlight every night on tour when he sings the Chris Young part in the Billboard #1 duet Think of You. With a single premiering just before CMA Fest, this father of two beautiful daughters is excited for the opportunity to finally share a project of his own. Benji co-wrote five of the six songs on the EP that is available for pre-sale now via iTunes and will premiere on all online retailers on June 30.
