On the heels of signing with Verge Records, the label arm of global music solutions company ONErpm, Chuck Wicks returns with his first new release in two years, “Solid Gold,” available everywhere now.
“As a singer and songwriter, I will forever stand by my work on ‘Solid Gold,’” shares Wicks. “It checks all the boxes for me on what I love about country music and that’s the reason I wanted to lead with this song as I reintroduce myself as an artist.”
From getting married to wife Kasi to the upcoming birth of a baby boy for the newlyweds in December, the last year has been filled with life changes for the singer/songwriter and media personality. Whether in front of the camera or interviewing country music’s biggest stars, one thing has remained constant for Wicks all these years, his love of country music.
It was his reverence for the format that inspired the “Stealing Cinderella” singer’s latest track, “Solid Gold.” Written by Wicks and produced by Jimmy Ritchey, the heartfelt song reflects on a love as tried and true as hits by the legends namechecked in the ballad.
Wicks has found success in various segments of the entertainment industry, including as a songwriter (with cuts by Jason Aldean, Frankie Ballard, The Swon Brothers and Steve Holy), as a co-host of a Nationally Syndicated radio show — earning two Academy of Country Music Award nominations for National On-Air Personality of the Year– and multiple television appearances, including as a guest star on ABC’s hit series Nashville and as a celebrity contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
