Chad Abernathy is a Singer/Songwriter and Chief Operating Officer of Lone Willow Music L.L.C. and Midnight Rule Records. Over the past eight years, he's performed in venues throughout Kansas City, the Midwest, Washington DC Metro, and Europe. He started writing music at age 9, honing his craft throughout a successful baseball career in which he was a scholarship athlete at the University of Alabama and Oklahoma State University, a member of Team USA, twice named an All-American, and played professionally in The Netherlands for the UVV Red Lions. Following that season, he retired from baseball to focus on his love of music and songwriting.
In 2013 his debut studio album, "The Journey," was released and well received. Chad was featured on Mixposure.com's "Showcase of Independent Artists," showcased at the 2014 Folk Alliance International Conference, and has received over 250,000 plays in various mediums around the world. Thanks to this reception he has steadily climbed the Singer/Songwriter charts on ReverbNation, reaching as high as #2 nationally, has frequently been in Roots Music Report's Top 10 Albums in Missouri, and his song "Say Anything" was nominated for Mixposure.com's "Rock Song of the Year."
