Meet Country Star Chuck Wicks: From Potato Farm To Nashville Stardom

Few could guess that Chuck Wicks‘ upbringing on his family’s potato farm would eventually lead him to country music stardom, but with a charm and sweet singing voice like his, it is not surprising. In 2002, Wicks quit his college career at Florida Southern University only two credits short of completion in order to pursue his newfound singing aspirations. The now country star’s talent quickly caught fire and was noticed by RCA Records in 2007. His debut album with RCA Records, Starting Now, is lined with the same golden charm that helped him originally gain popularity.

The song that  University of Tennessee football coach Phillip Fulmer said “hit [him] like a ton of bricks,” is Wicks’ chart-topping single, Stealing Cinderella. The video for this single is displayed below.  If you hadn’t heard of him before, watching this video will assure your status as a fan of Chuck Wick’s incredible talent. Lucky for all new and old fans, Wicks is hosting The Chuck Wicks 2012 Music Fest Fan Club Party on June 10. This will give his fans a chance to not only meet the artist, but also to take home a signed photograph. In addition, attendees will experience a live acoustic performance featuring the artist’s heart-spoken lyrics. Attendees will start their day at 8:30 and leave the event at noon. The meet and greet will be appropriately located in Nashville, Tennessee , the city that is both boasting with country talent and the current home to Chuck Wicks himself. Although VIP tickets which include all of the previously mentioned goodies as well as a full sized breakfast are sold out, the chance to meet the man behind the treasured lyrics is still available. Despite his busy schedule, Wicks is taking out time to appreciate the people that support his passion and  Ticketbud is excited to provide event ticketing for such a cool event. While tickets have already sold out for this awesome event, a waiting list is currently in place on Facebook! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9KHAaRxyuQk
