Wicks leaves RCA
Monday, January 24, 2011
– Chuck Wicks has left RCA Records after one album and one hit single.
Wicks had a hit in 2008 with Stealin' Cinderella, from his debut disc "Staring Now," which came out almost exactly three years ago. He released four more singles, including All I Ever Wanted, Man of the House, Hold That Thought and Old School. None reached the top 10 and the latter two, out last year, did not even make the top 40.
Wicks also appeared on Dancing With the Stars with then girlfriend Julianne Hough.
