From their first LP in 1973, to their powerful stage presence today, The Marshall Tucker Band has played countless concert venues around the world and they remain a powerful force in the world of music.  After nearly 30 years, The Marshall Tucker Band continues to be played on classic rock and country radio, and they have never stopped touring.

“They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country to blues and all things in-between,” said founding member and lead singer Doug Gray.  “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.”

Their hit singles include: “Desert Skies,” “Can't You See,” “Heard It In a Love Song,” "Fire On The Mountain,” and “Take The Highway,” and have earned the band seven gold and three platinum albums. |

Wes Hayden is currently touring to support his latest album Full Circle.  The Austin-based musician has captured the attention of the music industry and country radio stations with his new music; however, he has also captured the hearts of single women everywhere with his recent appearance on ABC’s The Bachelorette.
