Chad Reinert to Play at the Schuylkill County Fair
Chad is a local talent from just down the road to where the fairgrounds are located. Chad has been honing his talent in music since the age of 5 when he started to teach himself how to play guitar. As he advanced in age, he found himself playing his guitar while his dad sang at church. In his early teenage years, Chad started taking piano lessons, but had a hard time reading the music and playing at the same time. He stopped taking lessons with the piano teacher when he sat down one day and started playing hymns by ear in church. Chad’s musical talent lends itself to his ability to play drums, bass, steel guitar, banjo and mandolin.
Chad refused to sing along with his instrumental abilities until one day in 2011 when he surprised everyone including himself and sang in church. Chad moved forward with his singing ability and recorded his first album, “I Know A Man Who Can.” Two songs from that album charted.
Chad turned to Nashville in 2014 to record an album called “The Payoff.” The song titles “As Country As it Gets” which he wrote and produced topping the charts in early 2015 at # 8.
Returning to Nashville in early spring of 2015 he completed year another album called, “Keeping it Country.” This would be the fourth album he recorded at the studio he originated at, but his time, midway through the session, when owner offered to sell Chad the studio. This was an offer that he couldn’t possibly
reuse. Fulfilling his dream, he said “yes” and in April 2015, Chad became the proud owner of Toneslinger Recording Studio at Music Valley Village, Nashville across form the Grand Old Opry. He not only performs, but now helps others to get their start in the music business by giving them guidance, and even as much as being a session player playing rhythm and or lead guitar.
In the fall of 2015, Chad landed his 1st No.1 hit with “Don’t take Her (she’s All I Got),” holding the #1 spot for two weeks.
