Chad Warrix was born on January 28 in Hazard, Kentucky into a musical family. Warrix grew up 20 miles Northwest of Hazard in a small town called Jackson, KY. With a population of only around 1200 people, Chad was able to embrace nature and countless outdoor activities the nearby Appalachian Mountains offered. Music became a passion after he received his first guitar at age 13. Following his enthusiasm for music, Warrix enrolled at Belmont University in Nashville, TN and graduated with a degree in Business and Music Business.
While taking courses at Belmont, Warrix's path lead to performing. Chad and friends formed the band Sodium and were ultimately signed to a recording contract with Universal Music in New York City. They released their first album, Sodium, on Outer Records in 1997. Warrix released two additional records with Sodium, Words in 2001 on Wahki Music and The Box Van Journals in 2003 on Universal and Warrix's own label, Picnic Hill Records.
At this point, Chad may best be known as one of the founding members of the duo, Halfway to Hazard who found success with their top 40 single ďDaisyĒ as a part of Mercury Records. H2H was out on the road with Tim McGraw & Jason Aldean as part of their Soul II Soul Tour and again in 2008 on the Live Your Voice tour.
While working on his soon to be launched solo project, Warrix kept his skills sharp by hitting the road with friends Keith Anderson and Randy Houser playing guitar, writing songs & singing. Some of Chadís songwriting skills will be highlighted with the upcoming Tim McGraw release of ďDie by my own HandĒ, of which Chad co-wrote.
With his love for ATVís and music, Warrix founded the annual Crockettsville Charity Concert & Trailride which not only brings Adventure Tourism to Eastern Kentucky, but has raised over $400,000 for local charities since itís inception. This yearís event will be held August 27-28 in Crockettsville, KY. Warrix has received the Eastern Kentucky Leadership Award, and was recently honored with the William D. Gorman Humanitarian Award for his continued efforts on behalf of his hometown & region. On June 10, 2011 the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame unveiled a display in Chadís honor featuring many of his past musical and personal accomplishments which is currently on display.
