Eighteen months ago the singer, songwriter and syndicated radio personality was looking at a very different reality than the one that exists today.
Following a nearly-fatal car crash that left Wicks with a broken neck, he could barely muster the strength to raise his head. His dedication, rehabilitation, perseverance and a new outlook on life helped the former athlete return not only with the strength to compete as one of only 11 contenders in season 2 of NBC’s “IRONMAN: Quest For Kona,”premiering later this fall and also led to a ‘why wait?’ mentality for the recording artist.
With that lust for life fully embraced, Wicks returned with his first new music in nearly two years. “Better Than Flowers” is available everywhere now.
Chuck 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’s 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, Kelly and Chuck,” heard in over 50 cities across the United States.
An avid outdoorsman, he has been featured on Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s “RMEF Team Elk” series on the Outdoor Channel. Additionally, Wicks is an alumnus of ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars.”
