Former College Hockey Player Releases Country Music Album


Chad Brownlee, who had a four year career with Minnesota State, releases his debut album today. After four years at MSU, where the defenseman had 11 points (4 goals) in four years, he played a year in the ECHL for the Idaho Steelheads, but a series of injuries cut his pro hockey career short.

Brownlee’s first single, titled “The Best That I Can” reached the top 20 on the Canadian country singles chart (who knew there was such a thing), and his debut album, which is self titled, goes on sale today.

To order his album, you can go to his website, and to hear a sampling of his songs, you can go to Canada’s version of the CMT website
