By age 14, Chad was already playing at open mic nights and local dive bars regularly, scoring his first "real gig" by the time he was 15. Little did he know it was only the beginning of a long road ahead. Through high school he played every local club with his band that would allow him them to do so at such a young age. This set the tone for the pursuit he was soon to follow.
Chad moved to Nashville, TN out of high school at just 19 years old on a prayer. He soon learned what the road he chose to walk entailed and fully encompassed the challenges that came with it. Young and broke, Baker worked several day gigs while busking the corners of Lower Broadway to survive his dream by night. In 2015 Baker and a friend embarked on a self booked acoustic tour to California which would spark the start of his next venture in 2016, the "Wild West Acoustic Tour". It took 6 months of planning and preparation which led to 22 shows in less than 2 months spanning 16 states west of the Mississippi.
Since 2014 Baker has opened for artists like Josh Thompson and Sundy Best and has played all over the US.
