Chad Gray Hard rock Artist
Chad Gray (born October 16, 1971 in Decatur, Illinois, US), is the lead vocalist for the American heavy metal bands Mudvayne and Hellyeah. Gray is the son of Dan and Mitzi Gray of Edgewater, Florida. In Hellyeah's DVD, Below the Belt, he talks of how his grandmother, Betty Rau, raised him and would bring him to perform in choir. He quit his factory job that paid $40,000 a year to move to Peoria, Illinois and formed Mudvayne. In 2005, Gray's grandmother died after battling cancer for several years. That same year he married Kelli Olson; the couple have a home in Klamath Falls, Oregon. Gray dedicated the Hellyeah song "Thank You" to his grandmother and also wrote Mudvayne's "Death Blooms" about her illness. Gray is known both for his clean singing and trademark screams and growls. He occasionally performs on stage in gothic styled make-up. Gray has made several guest appearances with other bands, including on the songs "Monsters" by V Shape Mind, "Falling Backwards" by Bloodsimple and "Miracle" by Nonpoint.

Hellyeah is an American heavy metal supergroup, consisting of Mudvayne lead vocalist Chad Gray, Nothingface guitarist Tom Maxwell, and former Pantera and Damageplan drummer Vinnie Paul. The idea to form a supergroup originated in 2001 on the Tattoo the Earth tour, although plans were constantly put on hold due to scheduling conflicts. The summer of 2006 allowed the band to take the project seriously and record its first album. Recorded at Chasin' Jason studio in Dimebag Darrell's backyard, a self-titled album was completed in roughly one month. Released on April 10, 2007, the album entered the Billboard 200 at number 9, selling 45,000 copies. Allmusic reviewer William Ruhlmann stated the album is "a competent example of its genre" awarding the album three and a half stars.
