Richardson, TX - April 10, 2015 - Chuck Ligon kicks off a new full-length album by recording drum tracks today at Tomcast Studio in Dallas, Texas. The new album will contain 10 tracks, of which 9 are new originals. Given the quality and success of his last project, Chuck is pleased to be working again with producer Jeff Howe and engineer Paul Williams. The album is expected to take approximately two months to record and is projected to be released this summer. In the meantime, you can hear some of the new tunes played at live shows!
Chuck Ligon has an affinity for all things Texan...but especially Texas Music. Growing up listening to a mixture of Southern Rock, 70's Outlaw Country, and the Blues, Chuck was given all the necessary tools to craft his own sound that is reflective of these musical influences, and yet is unique and relevant for today. His songs present a wide range of real-world emotions, while maintaining an edgy, independent and sometimes defiant spirit that is uniquely Texan.
The latest EP, Come And Take It (released February 27, 2013), contains the title track that is destined to be a Texas Anthem, drawing parallels between the start of the Texas Revolution with the political climate today. Other notable songs on the EP include a duet with Aubrey Lynn England (Bound To Know) and a heart-felt song written for his mother (Fight For Life).
Whether performing with his incredible 5-piece band, swapping songs in his Texas Open Road Acoustic Series, or just playing solo acoustic, a Chuck Ligon show always provides a high-energy, rockin' performance that leaves the audience on their feet asking for more.
The Texas Open Road Acoustic Series is sponsored by Texas Silver Star Whiskey
