Chuck Wicks Added to Craig Morgan’s Charity Event

Chuck Wicks

Country music stars Chuck Wicks and Tracy Lawrence will join Craig Morgan onstage next week as he hosts his 8th annual charity event, benefitting the Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation.

The family-friendly festivities kick off at 8 a.m. on Sunday, July 20th in Dickson. The morning will start with a hair-raising motocross exhibition from several of motocross’ top celebrities and competitors, followed by a group trail ride and lunch. Motocross stars participating this year include Kevin Windham, Destry Abbott, Fred Andrews, Randy Hawkins, Andrew Short, and Larry Ward. KTM-Sportmotorcycle will bring along 2015 bikes to test-drive onsite.

Later that same night, fans can catch Craig along with Chuck Wicks and Tracy Lawrence for a hit-packed concert on the Dickson War Memorial Lawn. Following the breakout success of his 2007 debut single “Stealing Cinderella,” which hit the Top 5 on the Billboard country chart and marked the biggest single debut for any new country artist that year, Chuck Wicks is celebrating the release of his latest single, “Us Again,” the first on his new label home, Blaster Records. Chuck has become a welcome face in country music, moonlighting as a morning DJ on NASH-FM’s popular America’s Morning Show. Multi-platinum selling country star Tracy Lawrence is widely known for his standout hits including “Paint Me A Birmingham,” “Time Marches On,” “Alibis,” and “Find Out Who Your Friends Are.” The entertainer has enjoyed twenty-two songs on the Billboard top ten charts with eighteen number one singles, selling over thirteen million albums.

All proceeds from the celebrity off-road trail ride and concert will benefit the Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation. The organization’s primary goal is to assist foster children in Dickson County and throughout Middle Tennessee. Both events are open to the public. Event tickets are available at CraigMorgan.com and all Dickson Tri-Star Bank locations.

The Country Weekly Kick-Off Concert During CMA Fest Proves Fun for All

Chuck Wicks

The Country Weekly Kick-Off Concert benefiting Musicians on Call started CMA Fest week off on the right foot. The intimate event was so intimate that Pete Griffin, the President of Musicians on Call, personally thanked each individual who purchased VIP tickets (as they cost a pretty penny) for donating and attending. The event took place at Nashville’s Mercy Lounge on Tuesday, June 3rd with Chuck Wicks acting as both host and opener, followed by Frankie Ballard, and Kip Moore.

Wicks opened the show with a few comedic comments, warming the crowd up and getting them ready for a night full of amazing music. His set included hits, “Stealing Cinderella,” “All I Ever Wanted,” and current single, “Us Again.”

Frankie Ballard

Ballard followed and kept the energy going. He killed the audience with his rendition of Bob Segar’s “Old Time Rock and Roll,” singing and dancing around the stage like a scene out of “Risky Business.” Other songs included “Drinky Drink,” current hit, “Hell of a Ride,” and a catchy tune that talks about having to be make mistakes and try things out when you are young in order to become old and wise, entitled, “Young and Crazy.”

Kip Moore

An outstanding performance by Moore rounded out the evening. He sang songs from his debut album including fan favorite “Crazy One More Time,” “Reckless,” “Beer Money,” and “Fly Away,” in which Moore explained the three stages of a break up. The first being when you mope around the house sad, the second when you become angry that you wasted time on this person, and the 3rd, Moore explained how he felt this way when he was 21 and living in Georgia and got to the point where he didn’t give a “hoot” any more –although “hoot” is a nicer term than the word he used!

One of the funnier moments of the evening was when Moore forgot the lyrics to the title track of his first album, “Up All Night.” After singing the first verse with an impressive a cappella, Moore paused with a look of confusion on his face when it came time for the second verse. He asked a fan to look up the lyrics on her phone. Once he saw them, the words came flooding back. Never a dull moment with this guy.

Moore included tunes that will be on his upcoming album including, “Break My Heart*,” “What I Do*,” “Backseat*,” and current single, “Dirt Road.” He also sang songs for the first time in front of an audience and politely asked the crowd to put their phones away as he did not want these songs to get out on social media just yet. The songs included, “Comeback Kid*,” and “My Baby’s Gone.*”

The Georgia native closed the show with “Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck,” after joking around about hashtags and selfies –neither of which Moore participates in which somehow makes him even more likeable. Moore, along with Ballard and Wicks, helped raise approximately $17,000 for Musicians on Call, aiding in the effort to bring live and recorded music to individuals in health care facilities.
