Singer from United States of America

Chad Gray 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.  ( Wikipedia article )
