Born in California but “Raised in Texas,” Brian Shuck is actively performing in the Texas music scene.
Brian currently fronts the band, Brian Shuck & The Local Legends, a highly entertaining, family-oriented act that not only plays original country music, but popular songs from today’s hottest country artists like Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, the Zac Brown Band, Billy Currington, Toby Keith, as well as rock/pop artists like The Eagles, Jimmy Buffet, R.E.M., Chris Isaak, and Tom Petty.
‘Southbound Summertime’ was written as an anthem for all things great about summer, the beach, great friends and making lifelong memories.
The original song, written and performed by local Grapevine, TX resident Brian Shuck, was recently recorded in NASHVILLE at Beaird Music Group.
Fronted by Brian Shuck on lead vocals and acoustic guitar, this talented writer/musician originally was influenced by many musical styles from classic rock to country, before playing and recording original material in the Christian rock band Prophecy in High School.
After college, influenced by Garth Brooks and other country artists, Brian started writing his own material leaning towards the country music side and has written and recorded several stellar songs which can be found on www.brianshuck.com.
After many years as a solo act, Brian met Don Goodman, who added his harmonica, mandolin, guitar and backup vocal talents to the mix, and the two performed many dates together before Brian felt the need to add additional musicians and create a full backup band.
In early 2010, Don’s long time friend and local radio personality, Chris Babler was recruited to play drums. Don and Chris had been playing music in groups since 1987 and were former band members of the groups First Degree, New Ordeals, The Colliders and The Buckwilds. John Stallcup was added on bass guitar to complete the band lineup.
After a very successful debut at the 2010 Highland Village Balloon Festival, the group has gone on to play such noted live music venues The House Of Blues – Dallas, Sneaky Pete’s Texas, Austin Ranch, Sons of Hermann Hall, Lion & Crown – Addison Circle, The Barley House, The Grease Monkey, El Arroyo, Arena Sports Bar, Point After North, Real Texas Festival, Central Market, The Back Porch, Fresco’s Mexicana, The Frisco Bar, Dawgs N Hawgs, Lazy Dogz, Chasers Lounge, A Step Up, Grapevine VFW Hall, and Brian, Don and John played at Grapefest 2010 and the 2011 Keller Relay for Life.
