When Chas Collins steps on stage, it’s easy to see why he debuted on CMT’s Top 10 list. With his signature vocals and high energy stage show this 6’6 powerhouse can jump onto the dance floor and pump up the crowd. He delivers the full package for a crowd pleasing show and fans love him. Entertainment coordinator of a recent venue, Bobby Pollard said, “Our clientele have raved over his performance, and request his return every time he plays. He is one of the best performers I have ever seen.”
Hailing from New Orleans LA, Chas was born with music in his soul. After a visit to Nashville he recorded his first CD at Magic Tracks Studio. “They Wanna Hang a Bad Boy” was released in 2005. Being a native of the NOLA area, life took a turn as it did for many of its beloved sons when Katrina destroyed the city. But the strong willed performer was determined to follow his dream. With a couple changes of clothes and the money in his pocket he set his sight on Nashville, and he never looked back.
Chas Collins and his band have performed with several national acts including Luke Bryan, Bucky Covington, David Ball, Daryl Singletary, Collin Raye, Brian White, Hope Cassidy and Hotel California. Over the past few years Chas has compiled his current band made up of highly talented musicians. They are currently touring and have played over 2500 shows in 43 states. Chas has co-written with hitmakers Lee Bogan, Keith Burns, Bobby Fischer, and Byron Hill (2018 Songwriter Hall of Famer.)
In 2019 Chas hosted and performed in Kornfield Friends, a spinoff from the hit show HeeHaw which included some of the original cast such as Buck Trent, Lulu Roman, Misty Rowe and Jana Jae in theaters around the country. Currently Chas is working passionately honing his crafts and writing. He plays his hard hitting originals, current country hits along with a touch of rock and crowd favorites. Chas Collins and his band are currently booking 2021. Butch Johnson, Executive producer with Magic Tracks Studio in Nashville said “There is no doubt in my mind that a record deal is in the near future for this young country artist. He’s got what they call on music row, the “It” factor.”
