    • Society & Culture

Chrissy grew up in her parents retail and shoe stores.  From an early age she knew she had a creative spark. She quickly landed the lead role in a Blake Shelton music video and knew she had to pursue acting. After moving to LA, she was cast in another Country Music Star’s Video, Frankie Ballard’s “A Buncha Girls.”  But this video was different. From the second Frankie and Chrissy met, sparks flew. 2 weeks later he flew her out for their first date to meet him on the road and watch him play shows. After that they were inseparable.  Chrissy realized that acting was no longer her dream, and she wanted to leave LA to be with Frankie in Nashville. But she didn’t want to lose her creative outlet, so she prayed to God for a new dream. And woah, did God answer. Chrissy went back to her family roots of loving shoes and retail and created a Boot Empire named OLD SMOKEYS BOOTS where she has celebrity clients from Lucy Hale to Miranda Lambert.  She gets old vintage boots and leather and makes super-funky-cool-one-of-a-kind cowboy boots, belts and purses.  Chrissy also talks the secrets to her fruitful/spiritual marriage with Frankie, dealing with the grief of suddenly losing her father, and what a successful life looks like to her.
