One of the major Southern rock bands of the ’70s, the Marshall Tucker Band was formed in Spartanburg, SC, in 1971. The band was signed to Capricorn Records and released their debut album, The Marshall Tucker Band, in March 1973. They gained recognition through a tour with the Allman Brothers Band and found significant success during the course of the ’70s, with most of their albums going gold. Their peak came with the million-selling album Carolina Dreams and its Top 15 single “Heard It in a Love Song” in 1977. Years of rigorous tour schedules earned the band the respect of critics and countless dedicated fans. .”The buying public never really cared whether we were country or rock and roll” says Gray. “They called us a Southern rock band, but we have always played everything from country, jazz, blues, Rock & Roll and all things in-between. 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.” Gray also notes that people have gotten “married and buried” to classic MTB songs like “Desert Skies” and “Can’t You See”. After 41 years, The Marshall Tucker Band continues to be played on classic rock and country radio, and they have never stopped touring.BCPA-Sponsor
