“What I Can Change” available now
TN — A gifted singer/songwriter, and self-professed “car freak,”
has released a new single from his debut EP #Country. The inspiring new tune is
“What I Can Change.”
Tucker is a multi-instrumentalist and a prolific songwriter who’s played
and toured with Eric Durrance on the Jason Aldean (2008 CMT Tour),
Jimmy Wayne, James Otto, Ashley Cleveland, Guy Penrod, Rick Derringer,
Michael Peterson and more.
“My start in Nashville was with Eric Durrance. I became friends with
Josh Gentry, whose dad is Teddy Gentry [of the iconic band, Alabama] and
it was Teddy who had me come audition for the gig with Eric,” Tucker
says. “We worked with Teddy for weeks to prepare
for the 2008 CMT Tour. Working with Teddy Gentry and being a part of
such an amazing tour was a huge highlight in my career, and a tremendous
having a positive impact, about making the little decisions that make a
big difference. It’s about spending less time on the phone, more time
saying ‘I love you’ and letting go of the
things we cannot control.
musician for some of the busiest artists on the road, every one of those
artists have urged Tucker to record his own solo project. The
thoughtful artist took his time … to learn the business,
write, and develop his own sound. He cut demos, performed in and around
Nashville, and continued to enhance the sound of other big names …
until the time was right.
situations and real people with songs based on the stories Tucker has
lived and seen in the lives of those close to him. He believes in the
truth and enjoys gathering stories from his own experience
or situations he’s witnessed and setting them to music with lyrics that
are honest, inspiring and real … songs that listeners connect with. He
is most prolific when life has him spinning. It is when life is at its
most demanding that the words come … often
several songs at a time … perhaps in some subconscious effort to make
sense of the wonderful chaos that is life and love and relationships.
Tucker indulges his passion for cars; American “muscle cars,” street
rods and more. “I’m a car freak. It’s something I shared with my dad,
and plan to share with my own sons,” Tucker says.
He enjoys car shows and just about every car-related reality show on
TV. Tucker is currently restoring a 1968 Chevy Camaro.
“I believe in all of the songs on the
project,” Tucker says, “but there’s something really special about ‘What
I Can Change’ and it just seemed like the right time for this message.”
