Listeners of popular syndicated radio show “American Country Countdown” will hear a familiar voice this weekend but it won’t be that of usual show host Kix Brooks. Singer-songwriter and media personality Chuck Wicks will be standing in for Brooks, counting down this week’s top 30 songs on the long-running program. Wicks will be joined on air by specials guests Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Michael Ray.
In addition to filling in for Brooks and planning his wedding to fiancé Kasi Williams, Wicks is also back in the studio finishing new music—“Solid Gold” and “Started in a Bar”—the latter about how he met his fiancé. The release date is coming soon for both songs, which were written by Wicks.
Wicks first burst onto the country music scene in 2007, when his debut single “Stealing Cinderella” earned him the highest debut for a new country artist that year. Since then, he has found success down various paths. Much more than a musician, Wicks is a co-host of Academy of Country Music Awards’ two-time nominated and Nationally Syndicated radio show “Ty Bentli Show” heard in over 50 cities across the United States, and now in the UK as well. Additionally, Wicks is an alumnus of ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
