Chris Chitsey is a Texas native with deep roots in the ranching industry.
From performing at his father’s BBQ restaurant to scoring a series of number 1 singles, the singer-songwriter has made a name for himself in the industry.

Chitsey sat down with RFD-TV’s own Tammi Arender to talk about his musical journey, his Texas ranching roots, and his latest release, “Life is Hard, Whiskey is Easy”.
