Music Business Radio
Episode #79 - Chuck Wicks and Monty Powell Chuck Wicks recently began taking the country format by storm with his hit debut single, “Stealing Cinderella,” which was the fastest rising country single of 2007. Wicks spent several years paying his dues by parking cars and writing songs. At one time, he was writing over 100 songs per year. He developed his songwriting by apprenticing with some of the top songwriters on Music Row. That hard work can be heard on “Starting Now,” his RCA Records debut as well as on his tour opening for Brad Paisley.
As a music business veteran for nearly 25 years, Monty Powell has successfully honed his craft and found his niche as a songwriter/producer. His work appears on over 50,000,000 records.
He's worked with Keith Urban, Chris Cagle, Rascal Flatts, James Otto, Diamond Rio, and many more…
We talked about how he and Chuck connected, his role in helping Chuck find his voice as an artist, and what it takes to make it in the music business today.
We've got in-studio performance with Chuck and Monty, reviews of demos sent in by Music Business Radio listeners, and a call by Monty for the "next big thing" he is looking for and information on how Music Business Radio listeners can get packages directly to him.
