He played with local R&B/Funk band Versus in the late 1980s, and moved to Nashville with the group when they won a talent competition giving them a recording contract on StarSong Records.

Those who knew Chris best will confirm two things: He played fat, funky grooves on his electric bass, and his constant smile conveyed what an upbeat guy he was. His bio on MySpace stated: "I play the low notes that you hear in songs. That's how I describe it to my mom. She understands now after 29 years of listening for the "low notes". I thank God for all that He's allowed me to do and see. I truly love Him."
