It’s been a long wait, but on April 9, Chuck Wicks fans across the map can let out a giant collective squeal of excitement as their ears delight in his music. His new EP, Rough, will be released on both iTunes and ChuckWicks.com, and pre-order is available now. It’s the first release of new music since his 2008 debut Starting Now, which spawned the hit “Stealing Cinderella.”
“This music has been a long time coming,” shares Wicks. “I believe this EP reflects the steps I’ve taken to grow not only as an artist but as a writer as well. And now I couldn’t be more excited about the release of this new music, and I hope people enjoy it as much as I do.”
The 5-song EP will feature tracks all co-written by Wicks, including the summer single “Salt Life,” which was penned with Mike Mobley and Vicky McGehee.
Southern rock legend and Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman, John Fogerty, teamed up with several country superstars for his upcoming album, Wrote A Song For Everyone. The record features some of our favorite artists collaborating with Fogerty on his classic hits.
One of his special guests is country’s beloved female, Miranda Lambert. She joined the project after Fogerty slipped her a note at an event and asked Lambert to lend her voice for the title track.
Lambert grew up listening to CCR and was honored to work with Fogerty, whom she calls “rock royalty.” Because of her high regard for him, Lambert was nervous walking into the studio but she says Fogerty is so nice and normal (besides the fact that he is a rock star, of course). She went on to say that “cool is the word for him.”
Lambert dubbs Fogerty and CCR’s music “timeless” spanning and bridging generations. I would definitely have to agree with her!
Check out the video below to see what Miranda had to say about the whole experience and also view behind the scenes with Lambert and Fogerty. You can also hear snippets of the song in the background.
