Chuck Wicks’ new song, “Solid Gold” is available now, October 23rd, on all streaming platforms. The track, written by Wicks and produced by Jimmy Ritchey, is his first release in nearly two years and directly follows his new record deal with Verge Records. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
Chuck Wicks reintroduces himself as a singer-songwriter in his new single “Solid Gold”. The pensive track comes directly from the thoughts and voice of Chuck Wicks with Jimmy Ritchey as producer, and is the first release since his 2018 single “Better Than Flowers”.
After a tumultuous yet exciting year that includes major changes in both his personal and professional life, like getting married and now awaiting his first child, to his departure from Cumulus Media where he spent the past six years as co-host on The Ty Bentli Show, formerly Ty, Kelly and Chuck, this production means more to Wicks and fans than the message that translates through lyric. Though, that does not take away from the sentiment presented in “Solid Gold”.
“As a singer and songwriter, I will forever stand by my work on ‘Solid Gold,” Wicks shared in a recent press release. “It checks all the boxes for me on what I love about country music and that’s the reason I wanted to lead with this song as I reintroduce myself as an artist.”
A ballad that speaks to a strong, deep love that is compared to the sturdiness of gold, the new single from this “Stealing Cinderella” performer fills listeners with romance.
“Baby, our love is solid gold / It will hold you like a Conway song with the twang of old Mr. Jones / Our love is solid gold / You can find it on any map / Just pick a town and any old country road”
This release from Wicks is an exciting return to the spotlight. As someone who is used to the music industry between acting as a co-host on a Nationally Syndicated radio, winning two ACM’s for National On-Air Personality of the Year, and writing songs for the biggest country music artists such as Jason Aldean’s “I Don’t Do Lonely Well’, Wicks seems to be more focused than ever. With a more stripped-down style of music and a built-in tone of honesty blended among an attractive vulnerability, Wicks has all the qualities of a well-bred singer-songwriter.
