Chuck Allen Floyd
Chuck Allen Floyd has lived many lives. Songwriter, guitarist, cowboy, lawyer, frontman – each phase no less significant or influential than the last. His songs reflect the full gamut of each experience, creating an honest look at the life of a man who could’ve just as easily spent his days in a courtroom instead of on a stage. Chuck’s path to the Texas Country music scene took him through Nashville, Amarillo, and Nashville (again), finally returning him home to Oklahoma where he stands poised to take his place among the Country Music elite. Chuck’s career as a songwriter in Clint Black’s Blacktop Music Group allowed him to hone his skill of crafting songs that connect with a larger audience. Texas favorite James Lann recorded 5 of Chuck’s compositions on his current album, including the title cut, “Honky Tonk Kung Fu” (co-written with Lann) and the #1 hit “The Talent Requires.” Chuck’s songs have also been recorded by 2006 ACM Vocal Group Of The Year nominee Carolina Rain (”How It Should Be”), Trey Hensley & Janie Fricke (”Lisa On The Line”), Australian sensation Liam Brew (”Today I’d Take A River”) and others. His song “Borrowed Wings” won first place in the 2009 Billboard World Song Contest, and he was recently honored as Billboard’s 2010 winner for his song ‘Wishing He Was You’- a back-to-back feat that has never been accomplished. He was also named 2009 Co-writer Of The Year by the New Hampshire Country Music Association for his collaboration with Tony Matrumalo on ‘You Got Lucky.’ Floyd and Matrumalo went on to win the North American Country Music Association’s Co-Writers Of The Year Award for the same song. Chuck’s songs continue to be recorded by country music artists around the world. Success as a professional songwriter is a mountaintop that few writers ever see. However, in 2008, Chuck’s first love of performing live led him to return to Oklahoma and to touring. Three songs from his first offering, “Tonight An Angel Fell,” charted in the Top 50 on The Texas Music Chart: “Living Like Rockstars (in a Honky Tonk Band)”- #31, “Good Morning Houston”- #17, and “The Right Girl”- #3. Floyd’s second album, “Good On The Inside,” showcases the full arsenal of Chuck’s songwriting sensibilities, as well as virtuosic performances by his backing band, The Liars Club. Hopeful, funny, dark, insightful, driving – this seminal sophomore album encompasses the full gamut of emotions experienced by barflies and wandering souls alike, and further cements Chuck Allen Floyd’s status as a first-rate singer and songwriter.
