When Straight No Chaser – a 10-man a cappella group originally formed by college buddies at Indiana University more than a decade ago – first began, none of its members ever imagined being featured on national TV or topping the charts. A dozen years later, the group’s major-label debut, “HOLIDAY SPIRITS,” went on to sell more than 110,000 copies.
Fueled by appearances on ABC World News Tonight, CNN Headline News, and the Today show, among others, the album spent 14 days in the #1 slot on Amazon, and 5 days at the top spot overall on iTunes. The group’s now famous version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” peaked in the top 10 on the Christmas radio chart and reached the top 15 at Hot AC. On their first-ever headline tour in December 2008, Straight No Chaser sold out shows across the country.
"Back in college, we started this group just for fun—no one ever thought of it as a possible career path,” says original member Randy Stine. “It's hard to comprehend that ten years after our last performance, we'd be back together recording for a major label with an album that reached number one on iTunes, heading out on a international 50-city tour.
