Marshall Tucker Band vs. Chicks in S.C.

A talk radio host has hired the Marshall-Tucker Band to play in Spartanburg, S.C., on May 1 as an alternative to the Dixie Chicks’ concert that same night in nearby Greenville. The radio host Mike Gallagher told the Greenville News, “To tell you the truth, after Charlie Daniels couldn’t make it because of his scheduling issues, The Marshall Tucker Band is exactly who we wanted because we knew they were from the area.” Gallagher also said all proceeds from the concert will benefit military families from South Carolina. 03/31/03
