Up Close With Chase Bryant
Chase Bryant

Chase Bryant is a new 23-year-old country singer that broke onto the scene with songs such as "Take It On Back" and "A Little Bit of You." He co-writes and co-produces all of his songs and plays lead guitar on all his studio tracks. He has been on tour with big name artists Tim McGraw, Brantley Gilbert, and most recently Kip Moore.

An Orange Grove, Texas native, he has country lineage in his blood. His grandfather played keys for Roy Orbison and Waylon Jennings and his uncles even co-founded the chart-topping band Ricochet. He's been in the scene his whole life, and he is becoming more popular as the days progress.

Recently I had the chance to interview him over the phone and ask him about his life as well as his newest single "Room to Breathe" which is a new favorite of mine as well as many others.

Q: When did you first realize that you wanted to become a singer?

A: I think that from a super early age I always wanted to play music. I never really knew anything different or what else to do besides playing music. It's always what my passion was and what my goals were always set towards. I learned early on that's what I wanted to do... that's what I stuck with.

Q: If you weren't a singer what would you want to be?

A: A Singer. I mean, that's it. I never had another idea of anything else to do that's just what I always knew I wanted to do. I never had another goal or priority.

Q: What can we expect from the new music?

A: It's fun. It's wild. It's where I'm at right now in my life. It's what I've been going through for almost 24 years.

Q: What was the inspiration behind your new single "Room to Breathe"?

A: Well you know I'm a single guy. That's kind of where it is. I wanted to write something that maybe had a bit more sex appeal and something out of the line that I hadn't done before in the past — something that was a bit different from anything I had done recently. When I started "Room to Breathe," I knew there was this feel there that it was different from anything I had done prior to that song. I think that's where it was all coming from. Being single, being that guy that's going out to the bar, the first conversation you have with a girl or what it may be.

Q: What is your favorite song to perform and why?

A: "A Little Bit of You" is one of them just because it was my biggest hit as a writer. It's the one that's probably done the most for me. Seeing people react to that and sing that song is really awesome.It's an honor to have a song do what it did on the charts. I had a lot of fun with that one. Hopefully, "Room to Breathe" can become the next one.

Q: If you could tour with anyone who would it be and why?

A: Keith Urban. I'm a big fan of his guitar playing, his singing, his songwriting, his records, so that would be a big one. Yeah, I would love to be able to tour with him and see how that would go. But I mean guys like Kenny Chesney, that I'm a big fan of, or Blake [Shelton] those would all be really fun.

Q: Was there ever a moment that you thought that you made it? If so, what was that moment?

A: When I got my first tour bus or when I got my first lighting rig. When you get production. I don't think you feel like you've made it, but that's when you feel like you're going somewhere... That's the kind of stuff that opens your eyes up and you start realizing oh man I might be doing something right here.

Q: Are you excited to be performing in Pittsburgh at the new Tequila Cowboy?

A: Absolutely yeah! I'm a fan of Pittsburgh so I'm looking forward to it! We're all looking forward to being up there playing for you guys, so it should be fun.

Q: What do your fans mean to you?

A: Woo that's a better question for them and a really good question for me. I think my fan base is widely different from anything else. I'm super respectful of the fact they are willing to drive hundreds or thousands of miles to see me play. I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out who I am and what my goal is as an artist. But when you go out every night and see people singing your songs or maybe ones that aren't released yet that they found on YouTube. That's the kind of thing that I really look forward to. As for what they might expect in a show, it's crazy. It's live. It's fun, wild, loud. It's rambunctious. We like to have fun out there.

Chase is a wonderful and hardworking guy who is just out here doing what he loves which is making music. I highly recommend seeing him at Tequila Cowboy on October 6 and checking out his new music and seeing what he has to offer in person. I know he won't disappoint.

Make sure you check it out and get your tickets, and while you're at it, buy his new single and follow him on social media.

One more time I'd like to say thank you to Chase and his team for being so amazing.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
