6:45 pm - Matt Tucker Band
Born in Rock Hill, SC Matt Tucker was raised on country music. Raised in a very musically inclined family, Tucker has always loved to sing and in 2008 decided to get serious with it. He began playing in honky tonks around Rock Hill, SC with his father. Soon he was breaking out as a solo artist playing acoustic gigs. Putting together his first band, a couple years later, he began to realize his full potential and started on his journey to Nashville. Influenced by some of country music's most known legends (George Strait, Alan Jackson, Johnny Cash, Conway Twitty) and modern artists (Jake Owen, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks) just to name a few. Tucker's southern upbringing definitely shines through his songs. His music reflects the new country phase but with some ol' traditional ways.
2013 was a great year for Matt, he and all the folks behind the scenes have been making lots of friends in Music City (Nashville, TN). In October, 2013, Tucker became a SESAC affiliate known as Guitbox Publishing, referred in by Hall of Fame songwriter Sam Tate. Soon after he released a 4 song EP recorded in Nashville, TN, at Midtown Studio, with Pat Holt producing and engineering. In December of 2013 a big CD release party at one of the Southeast's premier country night clubs (Coyote Joes: Charlotte, NC) helped spark his self-written single “Tonight” to take hold and has started getting Radio airplay.
Matt continues to work hard to put together a crowd pleasing high energy show that showcases his own songs as well as covering many old favorites and many current day hits. Currently one of the "Carolinas" top independent Country acts, and starting to take hold regionally, Tucker plans to bring the package until the receiver is found! Look out for MT "Country Rockin" a town near you! Stay tuned for there will be a lot more out of this very driven and admirable young man in the Country Music Industry.
