About the Event
If there was a true authentic spirit to cross the threshold of Country Music with Christian standards, it would be Chad Bushnell. His roots date back down his family lineage the past 4 generations made of cowboys and singers, some of which shared the stage with the late Bob Hope. He exudes the Americana spirit wrapped up into his lyrics and melodies.
Chad has opened for Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, Scotty McCreery, Lee Brice, Neal McCoy, Billy Currington, Mark Wills, Collin Raye and many others over the years. His first Christian Country single “What Would Jesus Do” hit #1 on the Christian Music Weekly charts for December 2019 right by George Strait and Lauren Alaina. His latest single “Thank God” recently hit #1 as well following the premiere of his first documentary on KIXE PBS titled “North State Roots”. His EP titled “What They Ain’t Tellin’ Us” was produced at Hag Studio by Ace Otten. It features Merle Haggard’s son Ben Haggard on guitar and backing vocals and members of the Strangers.
Chad has participated in a number of contests such as American Country Star in Nashville, TN. where he became a top 3 finalist and won the Horizon award for 2014. He won Contemporary Country Vocalist of the Year at the Josie Music Awards for 2020 in Pigeon Forge, TN.
