Chad was born & raised in Western Kentucky. The Lord placed a passion for music in him at a young age. His parents gave him his first drum set at the age of three. Not sure how they endured the constant barrage of bangs and cymbal crashes, but he taught himself to play the drums by playing along with his favorite songs of the day. Chad played music with family and friends growing up but the things of this world quickly consumed his time leaving his drums stacked in the closet, untouched for twelve years.
While in college Chad started playing the guitar and experimenting with digital audio recording software. He had no idea that what he was doing at this time in his life would later be used to Glorify God. In 2009 he was asked to join the praise and worship team at The River Church in Nortonville, Kentucky. Picking back up on the drums where he left off twelve years earlier, The Lord slowly started doing a mighty work in his life through Praise & Worship.
In 2012 The Lord called Chad to start writing songs. Being strongly supported by his family & church he started to share his music.
In May of 2018, Chad took a week retreat to Good Hope, Georgia to collaborate and record with David Huff at Huff Recording. Through seeking God's guidance, The Lord directed David to bring in his two brothers Rayborn & Clayborn as well as long time friend & band member Keith Thibodeaux from Mississippi, all of which are members of their own original band David & The Giants. Recording many artist through the years and having many studio musicians available for sessions, David had never brought in his brothers and Keith to work on an outside project such as this. David also brought Keith Wall, Lance Huff, Christal Huff & Charlie Worsham in on the project.
The album (Old Things New) available on this site is the fruit from that week in Good Hope, Georgia. Though the songs were written by Chad, some even 4-5 years before these recording sessions, something supernatural happened in the studio that week. A unique sound Glorifying God & Praising His Name came out of those sessions. The songs were recorded live, not just one track at a time. The chemistry between all the musicians was nothing short of miraculous. The rest, well it is yet to be written... Hope you enjoy the album. To God Be The Glory!
