In a new interview with People, country singer-songwriter Chase Bryant has opened up about his attempted suicide in 2018.
Bryant reveled that, overcome by depression and anxiety, he drove to a Nashville gas station, placed the barrel of a loaded .357 revolver to his head and pulled the trigger.
“At that moment, I begged for somebody to listen and I begged for somebody to just come down and help me,” Bryant told People.
“I just screamed out the word ‘sorry’ as loud as I could, and I pulled the trigger… and here I am.”
The “Take It On Back” singer miraculously survived the suicide attempt, as he discovered one chamber of the gun was not loaded.
“So, when I looked at it at that moment, it was like, life’s too short, don’t make it any shorter,” Bryant said. “It ain’t worth it. We all have something to be thankful for, right?
“When I think about it, I want to be that one empty chamber for somebody. I want to be that one shot of fulfillment or hope,” he added. “I hope that this takes that bullet out of somebody’s life. I hope this takes it away. Maybe somebody sees this, somebody that’s going through something and says, ‘You know what? There is hope,’ because there really is.”
The 27-year-old singer-songwriter is set to release a new song called “Upbringing” on Friday, which will be his first new music in more than three years.
