Biography

Country music touches the soul of those who understand the rewards of a hard days work. Waking at the dark of dawn and sweating until the work is done and the stars light the way home to family and friends. The importance of every little thing, from a cool breeze on the neck to the sound of crickets at night, is felt more deeply in the heart of people who understand their worth and earn their pay. Genuine labor can reveal what a man is capable of, enriching his life with a confidence and self-respect obtained through calloused hands and a sore back.

Born on a leap year, Chase enjoys any outdoor activity, ranching, hunting, woodworking, photography, and spending time with family. He began singing along to Alan Jackson songs during the long hours in a tractor. Chase doesnt wear his boots and hat for show only on the weekends. Growing up on a 17,000 acre ranch and working full time with his family raising cattle and growing hay means there is no such thing as taking a sick day or weekend off. As a rancher, Chase understands the heavy responsibility on his shoulders to provide for so many, yet goes to sleep at night embracing the fact that he'll be sweating long before the rest of the world hits the snooze bar. Chase sings about his love for this honest lifestyle and the lessons it teaches along with the pain and loss hes experienced.

Bringing fear and devastation for the survival of everything Chase knows and loves, a fire nearly destroyed his family's ranch in 2008. His family worked to rebuild with the strong support of the community. Not long after the fences were mended, his personal life unraveled with the divorce from his high school sweetheart. Coping with betrayal and heartbreak, Chases pain manifests itself through his music with a driving rhythm and powerful voice that is catching fans attention. The love and support of his family, friends and fans along with his genuine desire to succeed as a professional musician so he can pay off the loans on the ranch and support his family are what motivates Chase. He now volunteers as a firefighter and wants to raise funds to help support other volunteer fire departments across the country.

Lyrics

1 - Country Roots

Written By: Chase Country

Traffic, signs and pavement
Look at those city lights
There’s no time to slow down
Stuck within a crazy life
You lose sight of what matters
The little things in life
A country state of mind

Where sitting ‘round the table
Is a common thing
The bond of a handshake
Means everything
The little things in life
Really mean the most
Remember, remember
Your country roots

Sitting on the front porch
Watching that sun go down
Driving down a back road
Got nowhere to go
A simple kind of life
Getting harder to find
A country state of mind

Where sitting ‘round the table
Is a common thing
The bond of a handshake
Means everything
The little things in life
Really mean the most
Remember, remember
Your country roots

Keep it country
It’s what matters
Where a man’s word
And a handshake
Is what defines you
Love and family
It’s what matters
Not what you have
Or who we are
It’s what you do

Where sitting ‘round the table
Is a common thing
The bond of a handshake
Means everything
The little things in life
Really mean the most
Remember, remember
Your country roots

2 - Ride

Written By: Chase Country

Drop down in the shoot
Feel the bull tense beneath
A burning fire deep inside
For an eight second ride
Looking down at the dirt
Won’t be there tonight
Gonna make that crowd go wild
Gonna win that buckle tonight

It’s Chevy trucks
Sweat and blood
That feeling in your gut
Rodeo queens
Wrangler jeans
And tough enough to wear pink
It’s bucking broncs
Bulls and steers
Who's gonna win tonight
I love this life
It’s cowboy pride
So tip your hat, let’s ride

There’s tension in the air
He’s reaching for the sky
He’s tougher than the rest
He can’t accept defeat
Got a name to defend
Be king of this game
Gonna make that crowd go wild
Gonna win that buckle tonight

It’s Chevy trucks
Sweat and blood
That feeling in your gut
Rodeo queens
Wrangler jeans
And tough enough to wear pink
It’s bucking broncs
Bulls and steers
Who's gonna win tonight
I love this life
It’s cowboy pride
So tip your hat, let’s ride

Ease down
Muscles tense
Contain the nerves inside
All the time put in
Just to get the win
Comes down to an eight second ride

It’s Chevy trucks
Sweat and blood
That feeling in your gut
Rodeo queens
Wrangler jeans
And tough enough to wear pink
It’s bucking broncs
Bulls and steers
Who's gonna win tonight
I love this life
It’s cowboy pride
So tip your hat, let’s ride

Tip your hat
Let’s ride
Tip your hat
Let’s ride

3 - True Love

Written By: Chase Country

As we walk hand in hand
The people we’ve become
All the ups and downs
Together we made it through
I have your heart
And I’m yours
After all these miles
Whenever we’re apart
I can’t help but think

Girl, I miss you
You’re just a phone call away
Girl, I miss you
Just a few miles down the way
Girl, I need you
Wanna see your sun-kissed face
Feel the love from your eyes on me

How we started
To where we are
This love growing strong
We’ll beat the test of time
Of everlasting love
From the moment that we met
What our hearts felt was real
A true love
That’s what we have

There’s been storms along the way
But I’ll fight my way through
You could be a million miles away
But my heart will be with you

Girl, I miss you
You’re just a phone call away
Girl, I miss you
Just a few miles down the way
Girl, I need you
Now I’m on my way
To feel the love from your eyes on me

Girl, I miss you
Girl, I miss you

4 - I’ve Been There

Written By: Chase Country

My best friend passed when I was just a kid
It’s hard to let an ol’ friend go
Married the girl that I loved
Come to find out that she loved another man
Felt the sting of heartbreak
Part of your soul is lost somewhere in time

What is lost you can never get back
What you learn can open your mind
Just a test of the grit inside
Makes the choice to live a better life
Felt the sting of heartbreak
Time to move on, just leave that past behind

Make the choice
To live a better life
Live with love
And you will heal in time
I know, yeah I know
It’s a tough ol’ road
‘Cause I’ve been there
Yeah I’ve been there

Time flies by so don’t hold back
Find the strength to get through your fears
You’re gonna fall down along the way
Pick yourself up and push through the tears
Felt the sting of heartbreak
Time to move on just leave the past behind

Make the choice
To live a better life
Live with love
And you will heal in time
I know, yeah I know
It’s a tough ol’ road
‘Cause I’ve been there
Man, I’ve been there

5 - This Letter

Written By: Chase Country

Sitting here writing you this letter
In my mind an old song takes me back
To the day we first met
Standing in line at the local county fair
That was the day I fell in love with you
That was the day I fell for you

I remember spinning high and looking down
Hand in hand above this country town
A breeze so cool you had to cling to me
Lost in a smile and a touch that wasn’t true
That was the day I fell in love with you
That was the day I fell for you

What happened to us
Why’d you leave me
An unfinished story
You were all I ever wanted
Nothing else mattered but you
I would go to the ends of earth
And back again for you

Oh, the memories we made
Don’t mean a thing since you’re gone
Someday you will realize
You lost the man meant to hold you tight

What happened to us
Why did you leave me
An unfinished story
You were all I ever wanted
Nothing else mattered but you
I would go to the ends of earth
And back again for you

This letter is the last thing
You’ll hear from me
I’m moving on

6 - A Real Man

Written By: Chase Country

He’s a tough ol’ man
With a heart of gold
With strong hands
He built this home
Don’t drive a hybrid
Or text on a phone
He’s a good ol’ boy
Taught me everything he knows

He’s a modern day John Wayne
Says how it is, what’s right and wrong
Won’t take a thing
No hand out, he’ll earn his way
He’ll earn his way
It’s a sense of pride
How he lives his life
A man who keeps his word
He’s a real man

When I turned eighteen
He took me aside
Said listen to me
Boy, time flies by
Gotta trust your gut
Just take your time
I took those words
I’m gonna live my life by ‘em

He’s a modern day John Wayne
Says how it is, what’s right and wrong
Won’t take a thing
No hand out, he’ll earn his way
He’ll earn his way
It’s a sense of pride
How he lives his life
A man who keeps his word
He’s a real man

He’s a modern day John Wayne
Says how it is, what’s right and wrong
Won’t take a thing

He’s a modern day John Wayne
Says how it is, what’s right and wrong
Won’t take a thing
No hand out, he’ll earn his way
He’ll earn his way
It’s a sense of pride
How he lives his life
A man who keeps his word
He’s a real man
A real man
Won’t take a thing
He’ll earn his way


7 - Wild and Free

Written By: Chase Country

Loading up the truck
Gettin’ my girl
Me and the boys
Gonna raise some hell
Heading on down to the beach
Gonna have a little fun in the sun
Nothing to do on a Friday night
Than party around the firelight
Drinkin’ and laughin’
And having a good time
That’s the way I live this life of mine

Living wild and free
Campfires and women
Rockin with the girls in cut off jeans
Pickup trucks parked down by the water
Everybody’s blaring some Jason Aldean
Living on the edge
Living wild and free

Holding up my cup
Eyes on my girl
Tailgates are down
Girls raising some hell
Dancing in those cut off jeans
Just having a little fun in the sun
When things get hot we’ll cool down in the water
Floating around not a care in the world
We’ll work hard when Monday comes a knockin’
That’s the way I live this life of mine

Living wild and free
Campfires and women
Rocking with the girls in cut off jeans
Pickup trucks parked down by the water
Everybody’s blaring some Jason Aldean
Living on the edge
Living wild and free

Loading up my truck
Gettin’ my girl
Me and the boys
Gonna raise a little hell
Nothing to do on a Friday night
Than party around the firelight
Drinkin’ and laughin’
And having a good time
That’s the way I live this life of mine

Living wild and free
Campfires and women
Rockin’ with the girls in cut off jeans
Pickup trucks parked down by the water
Everybody’s blaring some Jason Aldean
The girls the boys and me
Living wild and free
Living on the edge
Living wild and free

8 - Walking Away

Written By: Chase Country

As days go by
There’s an emptiness in me
Walking in on you
Ripped my heart right in two
Feeling dazed and betrayed
And not sure of what to say
But you put out the flame
Now you’re the only one to blame

How you feel
Doesn’t matter anyway
My love for you
Is gone and washed away
Your selfish lust
Knocked me down all the way
And now you want me back

All I can feel
Is a pain deep within
Just crying in the dark
With a hole in my heart
I’m lost in this hell
And I can’t find myself
But you put out the flame
Now you’re the only one to blame

How you feel
Doesn’t matter anyway
My love for you
Is gone and washed away
Your selfish lust
Knocked me down all the way
And now you want me back

Letting you go
What you forced me to do
Moving on
I’m back on my feet
Saying goodbye
Is all that’s left to do

And how you feel
Doesn’t matter anyway
My love for you
Is gone and washed away
Your selfish lust
Knocked me down all the way
And now you want me back

I’m walking away
Walking away

9 - The Fall

Written By: Chase Country

Right before the fall
The heart gives in
It’s vulnerable again
I’ve been here once before
I gave her all I had
Got burned once again
Burned once again

Do I take the chance
To fall in love
Ignite this flame
Within my soul
And love again
Don’t get me wrong
I love this climb
I’m just scared to fall

Born a country girl
Pure as a mountain spring
Those lips soft as rain
She’s got a strong kinda love
With eyes that pull you in
And a spirit that tames the wind
A spirit that tames the wind

Do I take the chance
To fall in love
Ignite this flame
Within my soul
And love again
Don’t get me wrong
I love this climb
I’m just scared to fall

Here I am
These walls torn down
Out on a limb
Come take my hand
Let’s take the fall

Do I take the chance
To fall in love
Ignite this flame
Within my soul
And love again
I’m just a man
Come take my hand
Let’s take the fall
I’m just a man
Come take my hand
Let’s take the fall

10 - Lay You Down

Written By: Chase Country

Summertime sun going down
Feel the chill coming round
Long days are slowing down
Time to get these boots up off the ground
?
It’s time to kiss you
Time to show you how I feel
I’m gonna lay you down
And hold you all night
I’m gonna love you
Like a real man should
?
In the bed a truck next to you
There’s nothing else I’d rather do
I see a fire burn in you
Your tender lips with nothing to do
?
It’s time to kiss you
Time to show you how I feel
I’m gonna lay you down
And love you all night
I’m gonna hold you
Like a real man should
?
Touch your skin to mine
Press your lips to mine
?
Time to show you how I feel
I’m gonna lay you down
And hold you all night
I’m gonna hold you
Like a real man should
Like a real man should
?
Summertime sun going down
