Chip did get to the party a little bit late professionally, though – he released his first album, Reluctant Cowboy, just two years ago, and the breakout 2017 success of The Bulldog Song came as a bit of a surprise. The song and video have racked up hundreds of thousands of views and plays on YouTube, Spotify and iTunes, and even on the good ol’ fashioned radio.
Now The Bulldog Song 2018 is live with new lyrics and a whole lot of new video — including an on-campus guerilla strike on Auburn that probably means he’ll never be invited back there! That’s all live — no green screen.Chip also released another great Georgia tune earlier this year, Sweet Vidalia. It’s not about onions – it’s about the town, the place, the people and the spirit.
It’s only natural that Chip would write and sing about the South – he was born in Newnan, GA, in the same old red brick hospital as Alan Jackson.
“Music is just something I’ve loved the way you love your mother, your children – it’s just there and it never wavers. I was born with it and it’s never left me,” Chip says. “I could say the same thing about the South.”
