Brownlee's album now available

Former MSU captain Chad Brownlee's first album, the self-titled "Chad Brownlee," was released on Tuesday. It's available on iTunes and Amazon, among other retail outlets.

Brownlee, a defenseman who played for the Mavericks from 2003 to 2007, decided to pursue music after calling it a career in hockey. He was a Vancouver Canucks prospect, who played one season of minor-league hockey after his college career ended before retiring from the sport.

But it appears he's found a calling with music, considering his first single, "Best that I Can (Superhero)," rose to No. 19 on the Canadian country music charts and his second release, "Hood of My Car," is already at No. 15 on those charts. His name is mixed in with the likes of Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Sugarland and Alan Jackson, among others

Good stuff! Hopefully we'll be hearing his songs on MN 93 in Mankato!

Shane, are you sure this is still a Maverick Hockey blog? No reporting on the hockey fundraiser tomorrow at reporting on captains or how the captains practice is reporting on the recent alumni's various signings with ECHL and other leagues.....
