Chris’ childhood was marked with frequent moves. He lived in his hometown until he was four years old, and then his family moved to Sugar Land, Texas, where the family resided for the next several years, but when it was time for Chris to attend high school, the family moved to Baytown, Texas. While in high school Chris took piano lessons, however, soon he found the guitar more interesting. His family moved again when he was in his senior year, this time to White Settlement, Texas, where he went to Brewer High School, but they soon returned to Baytown, and Chris eventually matriculated from Ross S. Sterling High School.
Chris firstly enrolled at the University of Texas at Arlington, however, he switched between several universities, including Lee College in Baytown Texas, but eventually dropped out, and instead of acquiring a degree, Chris moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music, and met entertainment attorney Rod Phelps, who hired him as a nanny for his daughters. He then met Harlan Howard while working at a bar, who was immediately impressed by Chris’ talent, and even published one of Chris’ songs. Furthermore, he struck a deal with David Kersh and wrote several songs for the country legend.

His second, self-titled album came out in 2003, and became his first album to top the US Country Chart, while also achieving gold status, and further increasing his net worth. The following year his career was put on hold, as doctors diagnosed Chris with several anomalies with his vocal chords, including a lesion, granuloma, poly and vocal fold cyst; doctors told him to take a break of 60 days from singing, and not to put his voice to extremes, so as a result Chris cancelled numerous concerts, being out of music for the next three months.
He returned in 2005 with the album “Anywhere but Here”, which reached No. 4 on the US Country chart, while three years later he released his fourth album “My Life’s Been a Country Song”, which became his second No. 1 album.
