After moving from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, Tompkins received his first publishing deal at the age of 22 with Little House Music. He then went on to sign with Big Loud Shirt in 2006, the same year in which he dominated the country charts with Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats.” Not only did it achieve #1 on every country chart and hold its position for five consecutive weeks, but it achieved ASCAP Song of the Year in 2007, Country Song of the Year at the 2008 Grammys and was the first country song to have over two million digital download sales.

With 16 #1’s, Chris Tompkins’ notable singles include Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ It Down,” Luke Bryan’s “Drunk On You,” FGL’s “Anything Goes,” Blake Shelton’s “Sure Be Cool If You Did,” and Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away.” In 2013, The Grammys esteemed “Blown Away” Country Song Of The Year. In the two years following, Tompkins’ songs were proclaimed one of the ten “Songs I Wish I’d Written” at the NSAI Awards – “Drunk On A Plane” (2014) & “Dirt” (2015).
