About Chuck Ligon:
Chuck Ligon is a musician born and raised in Texas…and damn proud of it! Having a father that grew up in Lubbock, Texas and played bass in a 1950’s rock band that toured with Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Waylon Jennings, it was only natural that Chuck would get an early start playing music. After receiving his first guitar at the age of 10, Chuck knew that he was destined to play in a band. As a self-taught guitar player, Chuck quickly progressed from strumming along on his Martin acoustic to ripping leads on his ’77 Fender Strat. After playing in several bands through high school and college, and doing a little studio work on the side, Chuck married his high school sweetheart Kim, and the guitar was put away. Chuck focused on a career in real estate, and after a few years, they started a family. Chuck thought his music days were gone forever…
But many years later, in an odd twist of fate, the turn of events surrounding Chuck’s birthday would change everything. You see Kim surprised Chuck with a Harley, and after researching the best places to ride in Texas, they decided to head to the Hill Country…and specifically to Luckenbach, Texas. When Chuck and Kim began touring the Hill Country on their Harley, they discovered some great watering holes. They also discovered the exploding Texas Country/Red Dirt music scene, and Chuck’s interest in music was rekindled. So after dusting off his guitar and playing a few “open mic” nights, Chuck decided it was time to jump back in and start a band, and within a few months they were playing numerous local venues, private events, and even received an invitation to play at the Wildflower Music Festival in Richardson, Texas. In 2011, Chuck and his band opened for Roger Creager and Jack Ingram at Wildflower. After being invited back in 2012, they opened for Neal McCoy and Mark Chesnutt, and in 2013 they opened for Ray Wylie Hubbard and Robert Earl Keen.
In 2013, Chuck released a new original EP titled Come And Take It that includes crowd favorites You Talked Me Into Lazy, Down The Road, Bound To Know (a duet featuring Aubrey Lynn England), and the new Texas anthem, Come And Take It! The EP can be purchased on iTunes, Amazon.com, or at live shows.
