The Marshall Tucker Band has produced 23 original albums and has been a player in the music scene since its inception in 1972. The MTB has produced ten gold and platinum records. Their most famous songs include “Can’t You See,” and “Heard It In a Love Song” and “Fire on the Mountain” as well as numerous other hits. During the 1990’s, the MTB scored four hit singles on Billboard’s country chart and one on Billboard’s gospel chart. Their music has also been featured on the soundtracks of movies such as Smokey and the Bandit, The Pursuit of D.B. Cooper, and Shipwrecked.
The Marshall Tucker Band got its start in Spartanburg, S.C. when Doug Gray teamed up with Tommy Caldwell and Toy Caldwell, Paul T. Riddle, George McCorkle and Jerry Eubanks, borrowing the name “Marshall Tucker” from a piano tuner whose name was found on a key ring in their old rehearsal space.
Described on their website by founding member Doug Gray as a diverse and dynamic band, they play several genres of music. “The buying public never really cared whether we were country or rock and roll” says Gray. “They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country to blues and all things in-between. We’re still playing all of the classic songs, but we are moving ahead into other styles as well. We’re also playing for a younger audience than we have in the past, perhaps to the kids of the fans we played in front of in the 70’s and 80’s.”
“We never play less than 150 shows a year, and sometimes we play as many as 200 shows. We feel we owe it to the fans who have supported us through the years to deliver the music in person,” says Gray.
Come to Whiskey Jack’s and check out these legends of the music scene as the play classic and new songs from the complete discography.
