Five years ago, Chuck Wicks burst on the country scene with his hit single, ‘Stealing Cinderella”. Now under new management, Chuck is releasing his first EP in almost three years, ‘Rough”, and the video for the lead single, “Salt Life” is being shot in and around Destin, the Harbor, and HarborWalk Village this week. Chuck has already made an appearance on Country 98, and is looking forward to shooting in Destin.
The Salt Life, which could be the song of the summer, has a laid back, beach vibe, and was written by Wicks and members of Kenny Chesney’s writing team. In an interview with Billboard.com, Wicks said he just penned the tune as a tribute to summer. The song was then pitched to The Salt Life Company, a lifestyle and apparel company that manufactures and sells beach gear, like sunglasses, beach bags, and T-shirts. Wicks and the company are teaming up to give 20,000 fans a complimentary copy of Rough with the purchase of Salt Life merchandise. Of course, both the single and the EP are available at I tunes now.
After spending a week in Destin and Harbor Walk Village, Chuck is saying than you to the Emerald Coast for it’s hospitality with a free concert at The Emerald Grande on Thursday night. Chuck will also be participating in the first Pardi Gras Parade on Tuesday, May28th in Harbor Walk Village. Be sure to follow both Harbor Walk Village (@HWVDestin) and Chuck Wicks (@ChuckWicksMusic) for updated information and details about the shoot.
