It’s been quiet on the Chuck Wicks front for the last year or so.
Last year Chuck released the first two singles from what was to be his sophomore album. Shortly after their release it was Chuck who was released from his recording contract.
Now, with seemingly no record affiliation, Chuck is back in the mix with a new video for his single [easyazon-link asin=”B004CVRP4M”]Old School[/easyazon-link]. Check it out…
Old School – Chuck Wicks
New Song, New Beginning
It’s been an interesting year for Chuck Wicks. After a promising start to his career things seemed to stall and he parted ways with his record label. The last single we saw from Chuck was [easyazon-link asin=”B004CVRP4M”]Old School[/easyazon-link] back last fall. In fact, it was released nearly a year ago. Now we’re treated to the video for the song. I’m not sure when the video was filmed or what is happening with the promotion, but I’m sure Chuck Wicks fans are excited and happy to see him back on CMT, GAC, and on various websites.
And there’s one other thing – [easyazon-link asin=”B004CVRP4M”]Old School[/easyazon-link] is a great song. It’s laid back. It’s fun. It’s groovy. It doesn’t really sound like other country songs on the radio right now. There is something really cool about the song and Chuck fits the personality perfectly.
[easyazon-link asin=”B004CVRP4M”]Old School[/easyazon-link] is about chilling with some friends. It’s a little improvised get together. There are a few drinks, a few girls, and plenty of laughs and good times. It’s a track that reminisces about a few good times with friends. The story is about those days that turn out to be memorable when you and your buddies really never set out to do anything. Sometimes those good times just come about on their own and they can be some of the best of your life.
I’m sure you’ve had a few of these in your lifetime and perhaps had one or two earlier this summer.
One final interesting note about the video for [easyazon-link asin=”B004CVRP4M”]Old School[/easyazon-link] is that Marcel was the director. He’s been getting credit on a ton of country videos this year and in previous years. He’s gone from having a record deal to no record deal to being a respected songwriter to looking like he had another record deal to now being a very successful video director.
It’s been an interesting career for him as well, but I think he’s found a real calling with video direction. This one is great. It looks like a party I want to attend. I want to be there hanging out with Chuck and his buddies.
Chuck Wicks’ Future
I’m not sure where Chuck Wicks’ career is going to go from here. The song – [easyazon-link asin=”B004CVRP4M”]Old School[/easyazon-link] – has already peaked #43 late last year or early this year. I don’t know if someone is pushing the record and video again, but I could see the song getting some play and maybe reaching the 30s on the charts.
Chuck seemed to be off to a good start with his first record. He had a top five hit and another top fifteen. It was very respectable. I’m not sure if there were higher expectations for his next singles, but whatever happened Chuck is working on his own and with new promotion these days.
It’s great to have him back out there. I think he brings that laid back style that isn’t really out there from other artists except maybe Billy Currington.
Let’s hope Chuck can get that second chance to prove his worth with country fans.
Chart Estimate: #35
CML Points: 82/100
