Here's the deal!! I have a Bio that someone wrote up and did a great job at it. But lets face it...Bio's are boring. So here it is in a Nutshell....mispelled words and all. ;)
I grew up in a small town in Smyrna, Delaware on a Vegetable/Grain Farm. I was a normal kid. Loved sports, chased the girls and got C's in High School. I also worked my tail off on the farm helping out the mom and pops!! That and getting in fights with older brother. :)
I left Smyrna to chase down my dream of playing baseball. Ended up going down to Florida Southern College to pretty much sit the bench. So thats when my passion for music took over! I picked up a guitar...mainly to impress the chicks..and started writing songs. I then started traveling back and forth to Nashville, Tn to learn how to get into the music business that i knew nothing about. What i knew and loved about country music is what i heard on the radio.
I met a guy named Monty Powell who took me under his wing as a songwriter and really showed me the ropes. This is when i decided to make the move to Nashville and dig in!!
I was broke so i got a job parking cars to make rent. I would write everyday and work every night. This eventually lead me to my first record deal 4 years after moving to Nashville with RCA records. Skipping alot of details.....I would go onto release my first single "Stealing Cinderella" which opened up a ton of doors for me. Toured with Brad Paisley for almost 2 years and released 2 more singles in that time called "All I Ever Wanted" and "Man of the House".
With this success on the music side it opened up an invitation to be on "Dancing with the stars". No!! I'm not a Dancer but i did last 7 or 8 weeks! so thanks if you voted. DWTS was a blast and it was cool to be a part of a #1 TV show! Just wish i was singing instead of dancing in tights. :)
I'm currently writing and recording my 2nd Album while out on tour across the states!! "Hold that Thought" and "Old School" are some of the tunes that will be on the new album.
Thanks for supporting me! I love what i do. I love to write songs. I love trying new things. If you want to check out the music it's all available on I-tunes!!
If i missed anything...which i did...probably on purpose!! Just Google Chuck Wicks! ;)
