  • Tina and Chase

    My name is Tina, born Sept. 18, 1987, to a single father in the very small town of Claxton, Ga.

    My daddy always said I was an accident because when I was born his youngest child was already a teenager. He also said although he wasn't planning on my arrival, he wouldn't take anything in the world for me, which is good cause I'm a daddy's girl through and through.

    My daddy owns a salvage yard and body shop, so from the time I could sit up by myself, I was playing in the yard trying to drive all the cars and messing around getting dirty in the shop. So it came as no surprise that I told my daddy I was going to be a NASCAR driver when I grew up. Of course to become a driver I had to actually learn how to drive, and learn I did! My daddy spoiled me so just as soon as I could reach the pedals I was driving go carts, four wheelers, dirt bikes and even cars or trucks around the yard. As soon as I reached the age limit I began racing dirt bikes. Soon enough though even those weren't enough to keep me happy. I just had to drive a race car, and in south Georgia the race car to have is a dirt track car. So I got a car and even though it wasn't NASCAR, I became a race car driver.

    Even though I spent all my time growing up getting rowdy in the yard, once I was old enough, I entered local beauty pageants. Even though I'm a tomboy I'm also pretty stubborn and I enjoy going against the odds. I won my fair share of those pageants too!

    I met Chase back in 2008 on my way to a Jake Owen concert with some friends. He had a date, which I made ride in the backseat while I rode shotgun with Chase. We talked that night more than they did and hit it off pretty hard. After that night, we saw each other every chance we got. I will never forget the first time he saw me race, he said "are you really gonna drive that thing?" I guess when I told him I drove a race car, he really didn't believe me. I think he fell in love right then and there! Not only were we physically attracted to each other, we had a lot in common. We both love to hunt and fish and hang out in the outdoors as much as possible, and I even enjoy helping with his taxidermy business.

    Chase proposed to me in early 2009. I accepted, even though I really had never imagined getting married. Growing up without a female figure I really never had the fairy tale wedding dreams. Chase and I had our beautiful son Hunter in late 2009 still with no immediate plans for marriage. I figured we were doing good and why mess up a good thing over a piece of paper. Eventually Chase convinced me that we should make our little family legit and take that leap down the aisle.

    So with the help of my roommate Patty planning our wedding and with CMT looking on we did just that at 1 p.m. on 1-1-11, and with all those ones we have to be blessed with good luck and there's no doubt I won't forget our anniversary! Besides, to me our little family could never be anything but number 1.


    My name is Chase. I was born in Statesboro, Ga., on March 21, 1988. I was raised in the small town of Metter, Ga., for the first 20 years of my life. I grew up in the middle of a small town and made the best of it when I got my first pellet gun. I kept the squirrel population in check around our house. I spent most of my childhood at my best friend's house (Logan) riding four wheelers, climbing trees, fishing and getting into whatever we could.

    Growing up I always said I wanted to be an electrician and a part-time taxidermist. My sophomore year of high school I mounted my first bobcat, and my role as a part-time taxidermist began. Since that first mount my skill of creating a life-like recreation of wildlife has improved greatly. Right out of high school I attended Swainsboro Technical School for electrical construction and maintenance. During the summer of 2007 I began work at D&S Electric. When I started, I was sweeping shop and picking up material from the supply house, and after two years I had my own truck to drive and I had a crew to run. Now I'm the most knowledgeable electrician at D&S and can troubleshoot through most any electrical issue.

    I met Tina in September of 2008 at Jake Owen concert. I was invited to go with a friend that unfortunately did not tell me he had a single girl (Tina) accompanying him and his wife. So since I was unaware there was a single girl I called a girl out the blue to ask if she wanted to go with us. So they picked me up and I was elected to be the designated driver for the night. I jumped in the front seat to find this beautiful redhead riding shotgun. So we left my house and headed to pick up the girl out the blue whom we had to wait on for 20 minutes to get ready. When she finally came out, Tina was not giving up her seat, so she put "my date" in the back seat. They were all fussing that we were going to be late for the concert now. When hit the interstate I floored it and held it to the floor until we got off the interstate. Needless to say we made it in plenty of time to spare.

    After that night Tina and I grew closer and closer. I started meeting her after work every day, and our friendship quickly became romantic. I asked Tina to marry me in March of 2009 and Oct. 21, 2009, our beautiful baby boy was born. I was off work the first month of our son Hunter's life, and he and I created a very strong bond during that time. We are a happy little family as long as I keep Tina happy and I can keep her pretty happy for the most part, until someone pisses her off. Tina and I got married Jan. 1, 2011, on the TV reality show, My Big Redneck Wedding. And now we live happily, legitimately ever after.
