Chad K. Slagle is a nationally and internationally recognized singer-songwriter who hails from the mountains of West Virginia. It was there he was taught the roots of American music, from bluegrass to jazz and country to blues. Chad began playing in bars and honky tonks while still in high school. At 19, he won a national songwriting competition and earned a spot on the Kerrville Folk Festival. Since then, he has traveled extensively all over the US, Canada, and Europe. His songs have been heard in several TV shows, as well as 2 major motion films. His understanding of roots music and its history even earned him an Executive Producer spot on the film, “The Songcatcher” starring Aidan Quinn and Janet McTeer in 2000.
Chad moved to Nashville about that time where he worked as both a staff writer, studio musician, and all-around road musician. He has worked with national acts like BR549, Kenny Rogers, Pam Tillis, Willie Nelson, and Kris Kristofferson. After about 10 years of hard work and traveling, Chad decided to move to Oklahoma to slow down a bit .
Since moving to Oklahoma, Chad has regained the love for music that the Nashville grind had nearly taken from him. He is writing again, and after a few years of searching for just the right players, has put together one of the most versatile and entertaining bands in the Oklahoma/Texas Music Scene.
