Chuck Nation Band

Chuck Nation Band

The Chuck Nation Band, from Gainesville, GA, near Atlanta, made their Carnegie Hall debut performance in New York City in 2015, where they received a standing ovation and encore.  In 2016 they performed in concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN.  They were 2016 Georgia Music Awards nominees for Americana/Bluegrass artist of the year. 

Chuck is a member of the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame, a two-time Georgia State Fiddle Champion, Georgia State Mandolin Champion and a Louisiana State Fiddle Champion.  

The band toured internationally to Ireland in 2012 and 2014, and in 2017 they traveled  to China and Inner Mongolia for two weeks of performances at the IFCM  International Folk Song Festival and International Silk Road Festival.

Close harmony singing and superb instrumental playing are the hallmarks of their distinctive sound. They have performed the choral arrangement of High Lonesome Mass in concert over 20 times with conductor/composer Dr. Tim Sharp, and have recorded three CD projects:  On A High High Mountain, Thinking About Home, and Beneath The Tennessee Moon.  Whether it’s old favorites, modern songs, or original material, the Chuck Nation Band delivers top grade music that engages and entertains an audience from the first moment they take the stage.
