Chad’s style of music is his own signature mix of rock and country, mixed with all the energy of a Cajun music festival. Right out of high school, Chad was sharing stages with country music legends such as Johnny Rodriguez and Ray Price.
Since his move to Nashville in 2004 Chad has played the Grand Ole Opry and toured extensively throughout the United States. He has opened for some of the biggest names in country music. Chad has toured 220 dates a year, on average, since 2008.
In 2015, Chad decided to focus on his dream of becoming the first lead singing drummer in country music history. He came off the road to focus on landing a major record deal and is currently still playing regular weekend spots downtown – a feat that is not easy in and of itself.
Chad’s ability to connect with others isn’t limited to his fan base. Chad has impressed some of the most recognizable drums companies on the planet. Sleishman Drums, Mothertone Drums, Silverfox Drumsticks, Drumtacs, Soultone Cymbals, Porter & Davies Thrones, Cymbolts, all proudly endorse and support Chad towards his dreams of making it to a bigger stage.
Chad’s passions include singing, playing drums and writing music. It is evident that this is his calling. He understands the hard work and determination it will take to clear his own path, as he is not the conventional country artist. Chad breaks the mold, and anyone who has the chance to see Chad Ray Crochet perform agrees that it is an unforgettable experience.
