Chase McGill



Chase McGill grew up in the small town of Columbus, MS. He began taking piano lessons at the age of 5 and picked up a guitar at age 12. "I always hated the actual lessons and having to learn other people's songs," McGill says. "So, to make my mom think I was practicing, I'd have the sheet music in-front of me, but I'd sit for hours and write until I thought I had something that could fool her into thinking a 'real' composer must have done it. It never fooled my teacher..." Chase has written "Kill The Lights" by Luke Bryan, "The Big Revival" by Kenny Chesney, and many more.
