Band: Tucker Wilson Fundraising Concert
Date: Saturday, Jan. 21, at 3 p.m.
Venue: Spanish Fort Community Center, 7361 Spanish Fort Blvd., www.cityofspanishfort.com
Tucker Wilson is like many 12-year-old boys from Spanish Fort. He enjoys going fishing and playing football and soccer. However, two things make this pre-teen unique. Wilson moonlights as “Precocious Neighborhood Kid Tucker” on 95KSJ’s “Dan & Shelby Afternoon Show.” He also has a great love for classic country sounds which has inspired him to become singer-songwriter. Through live performances and YouTube, Wilson has demonstrated his talent with original songs, such as the smooth country ballad “I Love You.”
In March, Wilson will travel to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, to compete in the North America Country Music Associations International competition. To raise money for this endeavor, Wilson and several other Gulf Coast musicians will take the stage for an afternoon of country music. This will be a chance for the public to not only sample Wilson’s original sounds but also help him get to Tennessee. Copies of his five-song debut will be available for purchase.
