Chuck Mead At Grand Ole Opry Country Music Show - Nashville
Artist Chuck Mead started his career leading several 80s cult bands around his hometown of Lawrence, Kansas. But his real success came when he moved to Nashville and co-founded the 90s alternative country quintet BR549. Over the band’s career, they would release seven albums, be nominated for three Grammys and win the Country Music Association’s Award for Best Overseas Touring Act. When the BR took a break, Mead formed The Hillbilly All-Stars, which featured members of the band The Mavericks. During that same period, he also co-produced tribute albums to both Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings, guest-lectured at Vanderbilt University and became a staff writer at one of Nashville’s top song publishers.
