Biography

Chris Brade is a singer/songwriter born and raised in Giddings, Texas. From the moment his parents gave him his first guitar, bought at a local flea market when he was eight, he knew he was born to be a performer. Naturally talented, Chris took the obligatory guitar lessons for a week and then perfected his art by listening to the radio. He began to write his own songs not long after, including his first tune, "Beer Drinking, Broken Hearted Fool," when he was merely a sixth grader.

As a teenager, Chris and his brother started their own band, frequenting picnics, bars and parties. He soon joined the band Wild Country and traveled the Texas Dance Hall Circuit until he joined the Air Force in 1999. Although Chris exchanged a guitar for a weapon, his musical journey was just beginning. He pulled together his own band and began playing on and around base. His popularity grew, and Chris returned home to adoring fans this past February, to release his first full compact disc.

Chris admits that it's not easy juggling career, music and family, but it's worth it if he can touch just one person's life. Inspired by such greats as Merle Haggard and Faron Young, Chris describes his music as real. He shares his life through his songs, and whether it's a love song, a heartbreaker, or a good old-fashioned honky-tonk, he hopes others can relate. Chris' shows are productions, and like his personality, electrify every venue with his smooth voice and captivating stage presence.

His goals are like most musicians trying to make it big: play 200 dates a year in the biggest dancehalls and open for one of country's biggest stars. Unlike others, however, Chris hunger for success and show-stopping appeal will definitely make him one to watch in 2005.

Lyrics

Run and Tell Dr. Phil

Written By: Chris Brade

Run and Tell Dr. Phil

Verse 1
I come home and sit down for a hot meal,
My wife starts telling me stuff she heard on Dr.Phil.
I never even met him, but he sure knows a lot about me,
I'm a hard working man not some guy you see on T.V.

Verse 2
You never bring me roses or tell me that you love me,
Seems that's all that I hear from you these days.
You don't do this, you don't do that, I'm just thinkin what's up with that,
Here are some things, that I want from you.

Chorus
Get up, get a job, stop watching my T.V,
I'm never gonna measure up, to the man he thinks I should be.
You're sitting around porkin' out, I don't want you to get fat,
Now you can run and tell Dr. Phil about that.

Verse 3
Sorry if I offended you with what I just said,
I think those daytime talk shows, have gone right to your head.
And if I did, I say oh well, I'm tired of living in this hell.
If you don't get up, you've seen the last of me.

Bridge
Oprah's on at three, and Dr. Phil is on at four,
If you don't get yourself a job, you'll be out the door.

Chorus
Get up, get a job, stop watching my T.V,
I'm never gonna measure up, to the man he thinks I should be.
You're sitting around porkin' out, I don't want you to get fat,
Now you can run and tell Dr. Phil about that.

Or, we'll both run and tell Dr.Phil about that!
