Chris McHughInnovative Percussion is proud to welcome one of today’s most sought after session drummers, Chris McHugh.  With over 400 album credits, McHugh has been one of Nashville’s A-list session drummers since the mid-1980s.  His drumming has been heard on albums from such artists as Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts, Michael Bolton, Blake Shelton, Toby Keith, LeAnn Rimes, Wynonna Judd, Brooks & Dunn, Sara Evans, Reba McIntire, Faith Hill, Kenny Rogers, Jars of Clay, Peter Cetera, Trace Adkins, Jewel, Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride, Lionel Richie, Amy Grant, Olivia Newton-John, and countless others.

Currently, Chris McHugh is the touring drummer and musical director for the 4-time GRAMMY Award winning Country superstar, Keith Urban, with whom he has been playing since the late 1990s.  His signature model, the CM-1, will be available later this year.  Constructed of white hickory, the Chris McHugh model has a length of 16 ½” and a diameter of .630” which are similar in size to a standard 2B.  It also features a shorter taper and larger, bullet-shaped bead which provides more top weight and a quick rebound.  This model works very well with larger-sized drums and cymbals.
