Country singer-songwriter Chad Bushnell has won several awards, including:

Horizon Award: Won in 2014 at American Country Star in Nashville, Tennessee, where he was a top three finalist

New Artist of the Year: Won in 2019 at the Inspirational Country Music Awards

Contemporary Country Vocalist of the Year: Won in 2020 at the Josie Music Awards in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Modern Country Song of the Year: Won at the Grand Ole Opry for his song "Fallin' in Love With You" 

Bushnell has also had three number one Christian country songs. He has opened for Dwight Yoakam, Kris Kristofferson, and Scotty McCreery. 

If there was a true authentic spirit to cross the threshold of Country Music with Christian standards, it would be Chad Bushnell. 

His roots date back down his family lineage the past 4 generations made of cowboys and singers, some of which shared the stage with the late Bob Hope. Chad exudes the Americana spirit wrapped up into his lyrics and melodies. Mostly inspired as a child growing up singing in church and constant inspiration from his great grandmother, his Christian Country roots run deep.

Chad continues to contribute to the western ranch world working closely with fellow Ranchers alongside his father, mother and sister Chelsey Bushnell (who is an accomplished roper and rodeo athlete) maintaining livestock while writing country songs. He has opened for Dwight Yoakam, Kris Kristofferson, Neil McCoy, Billy Currington, Mark Wills, Collin Raye, Mark Chesnutt, Jerrod Neimann, Exile and many others over the years. While Chad isn’t touring and opening for current country stars such as Lee Brice, Aaron Watson and Scotty McCreery, he’s tucked away with his wife in the rolling, western hills of Red Bluff, California.

Chad’s single “What Would Jesus Do” hit #1 on the Christian Country Music charts in December 2018 right by George Strait and Lauren Alaina. He went on to have two more #1 Christian Country songs including "That Ain't My Church" and Thank God". His EP titled “What They Ain’t Tellin’ Us” was produced at Hag Studio by Ace Otten. It features Merle Haggard’s son Ben Haggard on guitar and backing vocals and members of the Strangers. Most recently, Chad has worked with legendary singer/songwriter Dave Gibson who produced and co-wrote most songs for his latest EP titled "Baby I Love You". He recently finished an album titled "Whiskey to Work" that was produced by Nate Coon (drummer for Aaron Watson) and Derek Hames (owner of Edgewater Studios). Three singles have already been released off of the full album that will officially release March 24, 2023.

Chad has participated in a number of contests such as the American Country Star contest in Nashville where he became a top 3 finalist and won the Horizon award for 2014. He was the 1st place winner of the Inspirational Country Showdown in Yuba City, CA. for 2018 and won New Artist of the Year for 2019 at the Inspirational Country Music Awards. He was Contemporary Country Vocalist of the Year at the Josie Music Awards for 2020 and was nominated by Country Evolution as an Artist to Watch in 2023. He recently celebrated the premiere of his first documentary on KIXE PBS titled “North State Roots”. You may have also caught a glimpse of Chad on TV shows such as The 700 Club and Universal Huntress.
