Chad was born and raised on a small farm in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. He was introduced to the the musical influences of that area at a very early age.

As a teenager, Chad began playing the guitar and writing songs. He idolized the writing abilities of Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, and John Prine. His grandmother, a fine musician in her own right, introduced him to country greats like Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and George Jones. He decided early on that combining the writing style of the folk singers he loved with the country sounds he heard on the Grande Ole Opry was the type of music he wanted to make.

Chad honed his playing and performance style in the great college town of Morgantown, West Virginia, home of West Virginia University. Famous for its rowdy, party school atmosphere, Chad was given the perfect stage to blend all of his influences into what became known as the “Slagle Sound”. It was not uncommon for him to cover everything from Kenny Rogers to Bob Marley in a given night. He soon learned to take hundreds of songs and interpret then into his own brand of music, catering to whatever crowd he was given during his 6 night a week playing schedule at more than 20 clubs.

Chad continued to concentrate on writing songs in what little time he could find. His songs caught the ears of artists like John Mellencamp, EmmyLou Harris, Ed Bruce, and one of his idols, Willie Nelson. Chad decided to pack it up, head to Nashville, and try and further his writing with some of the best talent in the business.

Chad spent 10 years in Nashville, working as a studio musician,staff writer, and performing musician. The "training" he received working with some of the best in the business gave him the confidence to go solo, and it has been the best decision he has ever made.

Chad now resides in a cabin along a lakeshore outside of Oklahoma City, OK where he is busy writing and recording new material and embracing the "Red Dirt" music movement in OK and TX.
