Chris Hicky is a Grammy nominated music video director from Forrest City, Arkansas,[1] best known for directing many of Keith Urban's videos. Hicky has also directed videos for many other artists in the country music genre, including Dierks Bentley, Kellie Pickler, Deana Carter, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Faith Hill, and Miranda Lambert. Awards won include 2010 ACM Video of the Year, 2010 CMT Female Video of the Year, 2005 CMT Video of the Year. Hicky's Grammy nod came in 2010 for Keith Urban's Love, Pain, and the Whole Crazy World Live Concert DVD.

Chris just wrapped his first feature film, The Grace of Jake, which was shot entirely on location in his hometown of Forrest City, AR. With a cast including Jordin Sparks, Jake La Botz, Lew Temple, Roy Lee Jones, and Ravi Kapoor, and Michael Beck, this indie about crop dusters and gospel churches has the organic look and feel of other southern filmmakers such as Terrance Mallick, Jeff Nichols, and David Gordon Green. Based on a script written by Hicky, this feature was crowd-source funded through Kickstarter. Currently in post-production, Hicky hopes to share the movie on the festival circuit in 2014.

Other projects directed by Hicky include commercials, short films, and a television pilot "House in the Hills." Hicky's first short film, "Blue Horses" played various festivals including Cinevegas and The Oxford Film Festival.
