More than 200 people packed The Alibi in downtown Lenoir filling the bar to standing-room-only capacity last weekend.“Chad always puts a good show on no matter what,” Eric Coulborn said.

“ Appalachian born Chad Triplett signs deal with '23 Muzik Group LENOIR, NC -- Chad Triplett has signed a national promotion and distribution deal with '23 Muzik Group. Triplett was born in shadow of the Appalachian Mountains in Western NC.

Triplett's first song he sang on that ol' plastic guitar was “Rhinestone Cowboy” then twenty some years rolled by before he picked up a real guitar, this time out of a longing or a calling you might say.”
“Two guitars take a prominent place in his spacious den. He grabs his favorite, a Martin DX1R acoustic, and quickly tunes it up. He sits down on his patio and belts out an original tune dedicated to his mom, who died eight years ago of cancer. "I ain't forgot where I come from," he croons in his raspy voice tailor-made for country music. Chad Triplett's life is also fit for country music. A product of Wilkes County, his grandfather once ran a moonshine still. He sings about times spent at Wilson Creek, and stories passed down over the years. His family later moved to the Gamewell area of Lenoir, and he is a 1991 West Caldwell High graduate. For the past six months Triplett, 41, has been laying down tracks at recording studios in Lenoir and Charlotte. His first CD, called "Weathered," will be released later this month through Clear Channel...”

“Changing tune... "Radio executive makes switch into songwriting, performing" —MORGANTON NC— He could have gone a little crazy after his divorce, instead, he chose the country approach. “This all came later in life,” Chad Triplett said. “I didn’t really start playing guitar ‘till I was 31 or 32, after a divorce.” Triplett was born and raised in Gamewell, N.C. but has worked as a senior marketing executive for 92.1 The Big Dawg radio station in Morganton for eight years. “I know personally had I not been in radio, I would not have been the writer I am today,” he said. Triplett has written commercials and jingles since he began working with 92.1.
