Born in Rock Hill, SC, Matt Tucker was raised on country music. Raised in a very musically inclined family, Tucker has always loved to sing and in 2008, he decided to get serious with his music career. He began playing in local honky-tonks with his father around Rock Hill, SC and he soon broke out as a solo artist playing acoustic gigs in the area. Tucker put together his first band a couple of years later and began to realize his full potential. He then started on his journey to Nashville. Tucker is influenced by some of country music's most known legends, such as George Strait, Alan Jackson, Johnny Cash, and Conway Twitty and modern artists like Jake Owen, Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton, Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, and Garth Brooks. His southern upbringing shines through his songs and his music reflects the new country sound with some 90’s rockin’ ways.
In 2013, Tucker made lots of friends in “Music City” Nashville, TN and in October of 2013, after being referred by Hall of Fame songwriter, Sam Tate, Tucker became a SESAC-affiliate known as Guitbox Publishing. Later in the same year, he released a four song “EP” produced and engineered by Pat Holt and recorded in Nashville, TN. In December, a CD release party at one of the Southeast's premier country night clubs, Coyote Joes in Charlotte, NC, helped spark his self-written single “Tonight”, a song that gained radio airplay. Tucker finished the new album “Where Did You Go” in 2017, which features versatile, fan-pleasing songs.
