Eighty years of hope, harmony, faith and family.

Eighty years of what American roots music-titan Marty Stuart calls, “Unbreakable, steady, unmovable, truth.”

Eighty years that have brought accolades and honors for a group that began singing on local radio in 1935, and that went on to play Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, and the Grand Ole Opry.

Eighty unparalleled years with the same patented, instantly identifiable sound for the Chuck Wagon Gang, and momentum continues to build. Some say that’s really no surprise.

“This group was designed for the ages,” Stuart asserts. “For the eternal ages.”

“The history is part of what makes us unique, and it’s a story that needs to be told,” Smith says. “This never would have started at all if my grandma hadn’t gotten sick. This story started out of crisis. It’s one of those good old American survival stories: Work hard, come out of the pit… it’s an encouraging story.”

That story, and this music, has moved Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Charlie Daniels, and generations of gospel singers and open-eared listeners. For eighty years, the Chuck Wagon Gang has offered hope and harmony, faith and family.

“Life moves on hope,” says Dan Rather, the legendary broadcaster who has been a Chuck Wagon Gang fan since childhood. For him, and for many more, the group is “an echo of an America that was, and a reminder of how important the values of that America remain.”
