Formed in Spartanburg, South Carolina, the Marshall Tucker Band has blended the sounds of Southern rock, country rock, roots rock and rock and roll for almost forty years. Originally formed in 1972 by Toy Caldwell, Doug Gray, Jerry Eubanks, George McCorkle, Paul Riddle and Tommy Caldwell, the band has gone through many lineup changes throughout the years, but they have always continued to entertain and please their fans. The band’s name, “Marshall Tucker,” comes from a piano tuner in the Spartanburg area, the previous tenant of the old warehouse the band was using for rehearsal space.
In 1973, they released their first, self-titled, album under Capricorn Studios. The album was certified Gold two years later. Since then, the band has released nearly thirty albums, consisting of dozens of singles. Many of the band’s singles have charted on the U.S. and the Canadian charts, the U.S. and the Canadian Country charts, the U.S. Rock charts and the Canadian Adult Contemporary charts. Some of their most popular singles include “This Ol’ Cowboy,” “Fire on the Mountain,” “Heard It in a Love Song,” “Last of the Singing Cowboys,” “Silverado” and “Once You Get the Feel of It.”
In 1983, the band split up temporarily after the death of co-founder Tommy Caldwell. Five years later, original members Gray and Eubanks reorganized the band for the album Still Holdin’ On. In 1990, the album Southern Spirit marked a return to their country and blues roots, and their 1993 album, Walk Outside, which was co-written by Garth Brooks, moved to a more country sound.
More recently, the band is still playing shows together. In 2008, their song “Can’t You See” was used for both the opening and closing credits of the movie Swing Vote. Their song “Take the Highway” was also used in the film.
