On March 12, 2013, Doug Gray, the lead singer of The Marshall Tucker Band, chatted via telephone with Digital Journal about the band's upcoming show at the Paramount in Long Island, New York.
This year, the iconic southern rock group participated in the “Rock Legends Cruise” and they toured Switzerland. “We went to Switzerland and we were treated like superstars there. We had such a great time there. I feel like I owe the audience and the people more. They showcased a great deal of gratitude towards us. Although did not try some of the cheeses in Switzerland, I did try a little bit of that chocolate,” Doug said with a laugh. “The cruise was too good. People are ready to jump on another one as soon as possible. I had over twenty-five different musicians from other bands get up and play with me,” he added.
On Friday, March 15, The Marshall Tucker Band will be playing at the Paramount in Huntington, New York. “We play a lot of places that are very meaningful to us and the Paramount is always great. We will have the opportunity to see a lot of our old friends that normally won’t drive in to New York City. We are looking forward to this show,” he said. “We just play as hard as we can and we come off stage and get our hugs from everybody and give our hugs back and we look forward to the next time that we are going to be close.”
Doug noted that The Marshall Tucker Band is all about the songs and their melodies. “The songs tell their stories and that makes it a lot easier for all of us,” he added.
On March 9, 2013, The Marshall Tucker Band members were grand marshals at the NASCAR race. “We had a good time. The race was great and it was a lot of fun,” he shared.
Doug continued to praise country duo Florida Georgia Line for giving his band a plug in their hit country song “Cruise.” “I do love that band and I think they are great. I think they are getting tighter the more that they work. I am proud of them already,” Doug said.
