Chase Bryant has revealed that he tried to commit suicide back in 2018.

The failed attempt was brought on by depression and anxiety, along with turning into someone he no longer recognized. He told People,

“I was chasing success… I wasn’t chasing happiness. I was trying to be something I wasn’t.”

Chase is best known for his 2014 and 2015 hits “Take It on Back” and “Little Bit of You.”

Four years ago, he had had enough, telling the magazine that he was tired of being told what to do, of not feeling good enough, and tired of “being someone he was not.”

Chase said he went to a gas station in Nashville, left a long goodbye note on the seat of his truck and put his loaded .357 revolver to his head.

He pulled the trigger, but nothing happened.

After checking the chamber, he realized the gun had only five bullets in it, not six.

“So, when I looked at it at that moment, it was like, life’s too short, don’t make it any shorter. It ain’t worth it. We all have something to be thankful for, right? Looking back at it now, it’s so weird. You’re so dark and then all of a sudden you’re like, ‘OK, I got to get my s**t right so I can help somebody else.'”

Chase has been back in the studio working on his first full-length project he has titled Upbringing.
