Starting in 2004, the first band "Across the Tracks", produced a few unreleased studio tracks. In 2005, Chuck joined the military, and lived overseas for a few years, deploying to Afghanistan as a paratrooper, and returning home in 2008 to attend West Point. Commissioned as an officer in 2012, Chuck began to reunite himself with writing music and performing shows. Every place, person, experience, love gained and lost, has driven his music. This unique background sets him apart from most songwriters who search for their muse, where Chuck has mostly lived his inspirations of writing.
In 2016, Chuck released his first album with the "Bad News Band". Working with Oklahoma legend, Mike McClure, and ZZ Top's own, Joe Hardy, the album was an eye opening experience for the group. In 2018, Chuck separated from the group and began his debut solo album, "Texas and You." In 2019, Chuck started The Mile 57 Band named after a van fire when returning home to Missouri. Currently, the band is on tour all over the country, we look forward to visiting your town!
