MARSHALL TUCKER BAND ROCKS NASHVILLE
WITH BO BICE, KATIE ARMIGER
Nashville, Tenn (August 29, 2011) – Last Friday night, for the first time in five years, southern rock’s legendary multi-platinum selling Marshall Tucker Band barreled into Nashville, spawning a crowd of thousands, as well as a few familiar faces at the Music City BBQ Fest.
Keeping the riverfront crowd on their feet, the Marshall Tucker Band rocked through hit after hit of fan favorites including “Heard It In A Love Song,” “This Ol’ Cowboy,” “Take The Highway” and “24 Hours At A Time.”
Halfway through the show, much to the audience’s delight, Bo Bice of American Idol fame made a surprise appearance, joining the band on-stage and taking lead vocals on the classic “Fire On The Mountain.”
“Jammin’ with my heroes never gets old! I’m grateful to Doug Gray for asking me to grace the stage with the Marshall Tucker Band,” says Bice.
Country music darling Katie Armiger added a check to her ‘bucket list’ after being asked by Marshall Tucker front man Doug Gray to join him on-stage for a co-singing venture on the band’s most memorable tune, “Can’t You See.”
“Performing ‘Can’t You See’ on-stage with the Marshall Tucker Band was like a dream come true,” notes Armiger. “My dad played their music all throughout my childhood. They’re like Rock and Roll royalty!”
In 2011, The Marshall Tucker Band celebrates its 40th year since forming in 1971. Last May, the band, in recognition of four decades, released the Marshall Tucker Band: Greatest Hits and lead singer Doug Gray’s lost solo recordings, Soul Of The South. The southern rock band continues to tour regularly and recently returned from a five-concert tour of Iraq and Kuwait, where they entertained thousands of United States military personnel.
