Chuck Wicks hit the Nashville music scene in 2007 with his Top 5 hit, “Stealing Cinderella” which catapulted him into the spotlight as one of country music’s hottest newcomers. Wicks went on to release “All I Ever Wanted,” “Man of the House” and “Old School” – the latter of which spent 15 consecutive weeks on the GAC Top 20 Countdown.
Following his early successes, Wicks decided to take some time to focus on writing and get back to the simplicities of life he learned while growing up and working on a potato farm in small town Smyrna, Del. Wicks’ love for hunting and the outdoors has landed him on multiple Outdoor Channel hunting shows and vignettes. His passion for music and hunting combined for the Pursuit Channel’s Huntin’ On Empty, where Wicks wrote and performed the theme song and was both a featured hunter on the program and served as part of their Pro Hunting Staff. Now, Wicks hosts his own show on the Outdoor Channel, The Hunt Club.
In between tour stops and filming, Wicks went back in the studio working tirelessly on his new EP, Rough, which was released on April, 9 2013. Chuck co-wrote every song on the EP, collaborating with writers such as Liz Rose, Rodney Clawson, Vicky McGehee, and Mike Mobley. The EP reached the Top 10 on the iTunes country album charts.
The current single from Rough, “Salt Life,” is an upbeat tune perfect for summer. Co-written with Mobley and McGehee, Wicks recently filmed the video for “Salt Life” in Destin, Fla. The world premiere of the video will take place this week on July 18 on CMT properties.
Currently, Chuck is co-hosting Cumulus’ “America’s Morning Show” on New York City’s NASH FM 94.7 alongside Blair Garner, Terri Clark, Sunny Sweeney, and Lee Ann Womack.
