|FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE||(573) 592-1127|
Country singer and songwriter Adam Tucker and his band will do a Tim McGraw tribute show at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 6 on William Woods University’s Junior Lake dock. During the concert, they will perform a song with special ties to WWU.
Tucker recently recorded “Southern Choice,” a song written by the Rev. Travis Tamerius, WWU’s chaplain and an avid Mizzou Tigers fan, to celebrate the University of Missouri joining the SEC athletic conference. It is available in the iTunes store, and all proceeds from the sale of the song support the continued efforts to rebuild Joplin, Mo.
Now Tamerius and Tucker have teamed up with David Anderson, president of Chimaeric, to produce a music video to accompany the newly released song. Anderson is a 1999 Fulton High School graduate who received a bachelor’s degree in communications with an emphasis in visual arts from William Woods University in 2003. He is also a graduate of the New York Film Academy at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, Calif.
Portions of the music video will be shot Sept. 5 at the Blue Note in Columbia in what is being touted as “Las Vegas quality entertainment with a Missouri Tiger twist.”
A Nashville recording artist and Las Vegas entertainer, Tucker performs as part of the Country Superstars Show at the Golden Nugget Casino. He has traveled all over the nation performing his Tim McGraw tribute show, singing McGraw’s popular songs from the ’90s, such as “Don’t Take the Girl,” “I Like It I Love It” and “Everywhere,” as well as McGraw’s current hit songs.
Though equally passionate about sports, Tucker officially retired from playing semi-pro football in 2003 to concentrate on his music career. Later the same year, he released his debut CD called “It Ain't Me Anymore,” on which he wrote or co-wrote eight of the 12 tracks.
Tucker has performed at prestigious venues like Nashville's Wild Horse Saloon and has opened up for or shared the stage with more than 40 major recording artists, including Trace Adkins, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift and Luke Bryan.
The WWU concert is free and open to the public. The audience is encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair to enjoy the concert.
The Adam Tucker concert is part of the annual President’s Concert and Lecture Series, which brings speakers and top entertainment to campus for the enjoyment of students and the community. For more information on the concert, contact Brenda Foster at email@example.com.
