The Marshall Tucker Band Was Rough, Rowdy And Almost Country

It wasn’t rock.  It sure wasn’t country, at least not back in the day.  But it was something.  And it garnered millions of fans across the country and around the world.

Country Rock.  Southern Fried Rock.  Call it what you will, the genre’ had some pretty impressive members.

Lynrd Skynrd.  38 Special.  The Charlie Daniels Band were included, too.

And The Marshall Tucker Band.

Not a lot of ‘mainstream’ rock or country music station’s would play them back in the 1970′s.  For rock stations, well, they were too hillbilly.  For country stations, well, they had long hard and they played them there guitars really loud!

The Marshall Tucker Band has it’s roots in the deep south as far back as the 1960′s, and took their name in 1972.   Toy and Tommy Caldwell along with friends made up the band and they released their self-titled debut album in 1973.

I can remember hearing the album and, perhaps as a teenager, liking it a whole lot!  That debut album included the hit single ‘Can’t You See’, seen and heard on this video.

Of course, Waylon Jennings took ‘Can’t You See’ to the Top 5 of the country charts in 1976.

Nope, Marshall Tucker Band is not classic country…but they’re close.
