Country music artist Chuck Wicks, in partnership with Rob Bellenfant and 615 Ventures, transformed Nashville’s historic Woolworth building.

Chuck Wicks is a multi-talented artist who has earned two Academy of Country Music Award nominations, Wicks may be most renowned for his chart-topping country songs “Stealing Cinderella,” “All I Ever Wanted,” and “Us Again,” or for writing hits for stars like Jason Aldean and Frankie Ballard. Or you may have seen him on your screens appearing on ABC’s hit show Dancing with the Stars, ABC’s Nashville, or on Circle Network’s hit animated tv series, Road Stories with Chuck Wicks. He has also graced the stage as the host of the iconic Grand Ole Opry and as the voice of “America’s Morning Show.”

In September 2022, Chuck Wicks opened the Woolworth Theatre and premiered the residency show spectacular, Shiners. The show stars Wicks and Meghan Shanley, alongside a talented cast of performers, aerialists, acrobats, and contortionists, in a side-splitting 75-minute story about the hilarious Shiner family of moonshiners and their antics. The show combines comedy and cirque-style acrobatics, while offering a relatable arc of quirky family dynamics.

Wicks is also involved in various philanthropic endeavors, including supporting charities like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the USO. Chuck is an official ambassador of the Special Forces Charitable Trust, helping raise millions of dollars for green berets and their families every year.
