The Marshall Tucker Band

One of the major Southern rock bands of the '70s, the Marshall Tucker Band combined rock, country, and jazz, and featured extended instrumental passages on which lead guitarist Toy Caldwell shone. The band was formed in Spartanburg, SC, in 1971 by singer Doug Gray, guitarist Caldwell (born 1948, died February 25, 1993), his brother bassist Tommy Caldwell (born 1950, died April 4, 1980), guitarist George McCorkle, drummer Paul Riddle, and reed player Jerry Eubanks. The six-piece group 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.

The band was slowed down by the death of Tommy Caldwell in a car accident in 1980 and faded from the album charts after 1982. Toy Caldwell left for a solo career soon after, and the original lineup disbanded in 1983. Later that same year, Doug Gray and Jerry Eubanks hired some Nashville studio musicians and took the band back out onto the road; a little over a year later, the second wave of the Marshall Tucker Band began, as Gray and Eubanks returned home to Spartanburg, SC, and hired guitarist Rusty Milner, bassist Tim Lawter, drummer Ace Allen, and guitarist Stuart Swanlund.

During the years since the original band dissolved, the group has had country chart hits, toured constantly, made forays into the blues and adult contemporary, and suffered the loss of founding member Toy Caldwell, who died in 1993. Some bandmembers left, some joined, and some stayed right where they were, but through it all, the Marshall Tucker Band endured. The band continued to record steadily, maintained a loyal fan base, and eventually began to receive their due as Southern rock pioneers. The 1998 Marshall Tucker Band consisted of Gray, Milner, Lawter, Swanlund, David Muse (formerly of Firefall, on sax, flute, and keys), and drummer B.B. Borden (formerly of Mother's Finest). The band took several stylistic detours with 1998's all-blues outing Face Down in the Blues and the 1999 spiritual album Gospel. A thorough reissue campaign was inaugurated in 2003, and the new studio record Beyond the Horizon appeared one year later. In 2006, the group released a live 1980 concert, Live on Long Island, and another new studio project, The Next Adventure, appeared in 2007. ~ William Ruhlmann & Michael B. Smith, Rovi

Can't say enough to be lucky enough to live in the Times of all this beautiful music.
This freaked me out. This isn't fake. Apparently if you copy and paste this on ten comments you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either fey kissed or asked out. If you break the chain you will see a dead girl in your room to night. In the next 53 minutes someone will say I love you or I'm sorry

Great music marshal Tucker band
My very first rock concert. Columbia S.C.MTB , OUTLAWS, My older cousin took me. Whom.we just lost last week. My favorite band of all time! Thanks for taking a 15 yr.old kid to a night I'll never forget. RIP CUZ.I'll see you on the south side of the sky.
This the best
Greatest band ever! Period. We need to get them either in the Rock n roll or country music hall of fame. The reason they haven't been nominated is because they are so much of both
Awesome
1974, 75, 76 warehouse, New Orleans. Still have the pics.

I survived the 70's and 80's made it thru the 90's and The Marshall Tucker Band was with me all the way. Love these guys. Especially Doug. Saw them a few years ago at The Patchogue Theatre on Long Island in NY. BETTER THAN EVER!! Have seen them dozens of times but I must say that was an amazing show.

The Marshall tucker Band
I meant to say I have listened to these guys since 1972,,,sorry bout that.
I have listened to these guys since 1992. They got me through combat and even performed live for me and my Marines in 1975. If it weren't for stations like this, I would not be able to find their music. I have requested their songs from numerous Country Music stations and they don't have their music. Pandora is all I listen to now, because of The Marshall Tucker Band and the Charlie Daniels Band. THIS is REAL music!
They are a real joy to listen to!
