BandCountryAmericana

REAL COUNTRY MUSIC.Country music that goes back to the basics.

Biography

He was born October 12, 1966. He is the older of two children and grew up in rural Winston County, Alabama. His love for music began at a very young age; his Dad and both grandparents being musicians. His earlier years were around bluegrass and gosper music.
He truly believes that next to God, your family comes first. The love and support from his wife, Melissa and his son Daniel, along with his step-children Bridgette, Lindsey, and Jeremy has not only encouraged his music but has also been an inspiration for his song writing.

In the Spring of 1993, Landon Taylor who is a long-time friend of Chris', was instrumental in getting Chris an audition as bass player for Clay Walker. Landon was, and is still, lead guitar for Clay and was familiar with not only his ability as a bass player but also his singing ability .For three years he played bass guitar and sang back-up for Clay and on many occasions actually opened the show. For a country boy, touring and traveling over the entire United States and Canada was a dream come true.

He then played bass and sang back-up for Wade Hayes for a couple of years.
. He has played most every major venue in the U.S. and Canada. While playing with Clay Walker he appeared on Countdown at the Neon Armadillo, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Crook and Chase, Music City Tonight, Nashville Now, and THE GRAND OLE OPRY. He has also appeared in Clay Walker's Video "If I Could Make A Living Out of Loving You".

In the fall of 2003, Chris and his wonderfully supportive wife, Melissa, managed a plan for him to devote his time to completing the album he so desperately wanted to record. Because of the sacrifices they were willing to make, he completed the album in 2004. The arrangements are also by Chris. These songs are "real country" the way country songs are supposed to sound.
.
You only need to listen to the CD to appreciate his talent as a singer and as a songwriter. He is truly the definition of the word "artist".

Lyrics

Out Of Your Mind

Written By: Chris Vaughn


Are you Going out again tonight
Are we through or is it just out of spite
When it comes to me
You can't seem to concentrate
Could it be it's all a big mistake
(Chorus)
Am I crazy completely insane
I lost your attention
You don't think of me the same
I'm no longer in your thoughts
Have you broke the tie that binds
I think I'm going out of your mind
(Vers 2)
So tell me am I out of my head
Cause it seems your love for me is dead
And latley you don't think of me at all
Frankly I yhink we're headed for a fall

The Wind

Written By: Chris Vaughn

she stays home he stays gone
she makes calls he's not by the phone
He's living dreams She's living alone
What seemed so right now seems so wrong

She's a candle He's the wind
He makes it hard She only bends
She keeps the fire burning
Till he blows through again
She's a candle He's the wind

he's a singer she's a stage
she reads books he turns the page
she sits in the dark he stands in the light
he's living proof it's all black and white

she looks on the bright side of the nightlife he lives in......
she's a candle he's the wind.

Backwrd

Written By: Chris Vaughn

I sat down to write a song about me and you
But always on the last line
we wind up sad and blue
I don't like the outcome
so this is what I'll do
I'll write this song Backward
Then I don't have to lose
(chours)
I'll write this song Backward
Start where it all went wrong
We end up togather
instead of all alone
When everything was perfect
like it was in the begining
I'll write this song Backward
So it will have a happy ending
(Verse 2)
Now i've come to realize
I can't change the past
but if I do this my way
our love will always last
so I'll just keep on writing
even though it's all pretend
then happy ever after is how this song will end.
(Repeat Course)
I'll write this song Backward
Start where it all went wrong
We end up togather
instead of all alone
When everything was perfect
like it was in the begining
I'll write this song Backward cause I love happy endings

Material Cowgirl

Written By: Chris Vaughn


I met a little rodeo queen
she was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen
so I asked her if she would be my bride
well it didn't take me very long
to figure out there was something wrong
she started spending my money and taking me for a ride

2nd verse

It all started when we baught this farm
then she had to have a new horse barn
bridels and saddles that cost more than my truck
she's got the very best western wear
uses mane and tail in her hair
and now my bank account has run amuck.

course

It's a no win situation
I've got a two blue healer woman
and a one dog occupation
I know now I'll never be the richest man in the world
cause I married a material cowgirl
