When Chuck Wicks debuted in 2007 with his first single, “Stealing Cinderella,” the song quickly became a father/daughter dance standard at weddings. But before he found himself on the country charts he was frequently found in Nashville parking lots, paying his dues by parking cars for a living while hoping for success as a singer/songwriter.
Success came when he was signed to RCA Records and artists including Steve Holy and Jason Aldean recorded his songs.
It may have taken a few years to get from the parking lot to the country charts, but Chuck wouldn’t change a thing. “I’m a much better artist now,” he says. “I wasn’t ready before and now I am. I’m glad I parked cars for five years. It makes me appreciate everything that I’ve had to work for to get to this point.”
Chuck made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2007. “One of the greatest things about the Grand Ole Opry is getting with a bunch of folks that love country music and playing a tune or two,” he says.
In addition to his recording career, Chuck “moonlights” as a radio host on NASH FM’s Ty Bentli Show.
