Country music artist Chuck Wicks, in partnership with Rob Bellenfant and 615 Ventures, will transform Nashville’s historic Woolworth building into a 400-seat theater.

“Stealing Cinderella” hitmaker Chuck Wicks has found success across the entertainment industry, including as a songwriter (cuts by Jason Aldean/Frankie Ballard), as a co-host of a Nationally Syndicated radio show — earning two Academy of Country Music Award nominations for National On-Air Personality of the Year– and multiple television appearances, including as a guest star on ABC’s hit series Nashville and as a celebrity contestant on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.

A former college baseball player, sportsman and outdoor enthusiast, Wicks was one of only 11 athletes chosen from around the world to be featured on Season 2 of NBC Sports’ “IRONMAN: Quest For Kona” and was featured on Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s “RMEF Team Elk” series on the Outdoor Channel.

Latest tracks “Old With You” and “Solid Gold” are fans’ first taste of new music in over two years from Wicks, who has been writing and back in the recording studio. Wicks can also be heard every Monday and Thursday with fresh episodes of his new iHeart podcast “Talk to Chuck.
