Christopher Waters Dunn was born in San Antonio, Texas.[1] He is the older brother of country music singer Holly Dunn.[1]

In 1980, he began recording uner the name Chris Waters. He released the single "My Lady Loves Me (Just as I Am)," which he wrote with Keith Stegall. This song spent three weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles (now Hot Country Songs) charts, peaking at #82 in November.[1] Billboard gave the song a positive review in its October 18, 1980 issue, saying that it "merits country airplay out of the box."[2] A second single, "It's Like Falling in Love (Over and Over Again)," peaked at #89 on the same chart in March 1981.[1] Waters also co-wrote "Sexy Eyes" for Dr. Hook & The Medicine Show in this timespan.[3]

Waters played acoustic guitar for her and co-wrote several of her songs with her, including the Top Ten hit "Daddy's Hands"[4] and the Number One hit "You Really Had Me Going," which he and Dunn wrote with Tom Shapiro.

Waters began writing songs for other artists in the 1990s and 2000s, including the Number One hits "She Never Lets It Go to Her Heart" by Tim McGraw, "You're Easy on the Eyes" by Terri Clark and "What I Really Meant to Say" by Cyndi Thomson, all of which won him awards from Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI).[5] Other songs for which he was awarded include Clark's debut single "Better Things to Do" and "That Ain't My Truck" by Rhett Akins,[5] both of which peaked at #3.
