David Chapa is a Nashville recording artist known for his production, He Wore Black, a Johnny Cash Tribute show as well as his own original songs such as “Son It’ll Be Alright”, “She Only Loves Me On The Rocks”, “Flying Solo”, “I Got Away With Cash”, “Saint and Sinner” and many more.
David has been playing and singing for 30 years performing his original songs, as well as classic country covers by Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, and more. David is known internationally for his affiliation with WS “Fluke” Holland, Johnny Cash’s one and only drummer for nearly 40 years, and “He Wore Black, a Johnny Cash Tribute Show“, the show Chapa envisioned over a decade ago. Through collaboration with WS Holland, Ron Haney, lead guitarist, and music director for WS Holland Band, He Wore Black was born. Chapa, Holland, and Haney have performed this show from Colorado to Florida and several places in between.
Today, David can be found performing “unplugged” versions of He Wore Black, and his “Country Roots” sets of acoustic classic country songs by his country music heroes. His original songs are both heartfelt and humorous, written in the same style as the classics with his own percussive flair thrown in.
