For more than 25 years, the Marshall Tucker Band continues to be played on classic rock and country radio and they have never stopped touring.
Years of rigorous tour schedules earned the band the respect of critics and countless dedicated fans. With hit singles like "Heard it in a Love Song," "Fire On The Mountain," "Can't You See" and "Take The Highway," MTB earned seven gold and three platinum albums while they were on the Capricorn Records label. During the 90s, 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, South Carolina, when Doug Gray teamed up with Tommy and Toy Caldwell, Paul T. Riddle, George McCorkle and Jerry Eubanks, borrowing the name "Marshall Tucker" from a piano tuner who's name was found on a key ring in their old rehearsal space.
In 1972 they signed with Capricorn Records, the same label that guided The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie and others to national fame. The MTB opened shows for The Allman Brothers Band in 1973, and the following year, they began to headline their own shows across America due to the platinum-plus sales of their debut album.
In years to come, The Marshall Tucker Band would wow critics and influence major country acts like Alabama, The Kentucky Headhunters, Confederate Railroad and Travis Tritt with its definitive blend of rock, rhythm & blues, jazz, country and gospel.
Now, thanks to the expanding scope of today's music, a new generation of fans are learning what the rest of their fans have known for so long that good music knows no boundaries.
"As we've become older," Gray grins, eyes twinkling, "our Southern heritage seems to come out even more. But no matter how old we get, we can still rock your socks off."
