About Chuck Allen Floyd
Oklahoma City, OK
Chuck Allen Floyd's musical career began when he and a group of college buddies formed a band and started playing cover songs throughout southern Oklahoma and north Texas. After forming a strong regional following, he decided to give Nashville a try.
Floyd pursued music in Nashville for three years while he finished his degree at Belmont University. Getting nowhere, he then made an unconventional career choice (at least for a songwriter); he returned to Oklahoma and attended law at the University of Oklahoma. He then passed the bar in Texas and practiced law in Amarillo for roughly ten minutes (actually, about 6 months). Convinced a career in law was not for him, Chuck sold his house, dusted off his guitars and moved back to Nashville in pursuit of a songwriting deal.
In 2004, Floyd found that deal with country music legend Clint Black's Blacktop Music Group. A full-time writer/performer ever since, Floyd has collaborated with many of Nashville's most celebrated songwriters as well as some of the best up and comers on Music Row.
Floyd's songs have been recorded by ACM Vocal Group Of The Year nominee Carolina Rain (How It Should Be), Coyote Ugly Saloon's new girl-group The Coyotes (Later Than You Think), independent artists Matt Nolen (What Love Is; The Road Doesn't End; Why Me); Trey Hensley (Lisa On The Line); Jimmy Melton (Nobody's Perfect), Jenn Schott (You Can't Argue With That), Josh Evertsen (Who Does That Anymore) and iPac Records recording artist Ansel Brown (Mine's Bigger; The Road Doesn't End; Smoke), and by Australian artist Liam Brew ("Today I'd Take A River").
Chuck's song "Borrowed Wings" won first place in the 2008 Billboard World Song Contest and he was also named Co-writer Of The Year by the New Hampshire Country Music Association for his collaboration with Tony Matrumalo on "You Got Lucky." Floyd and Matrumalo went on to win the organization's national Songwriter's Horizon Award for the same song.
As accomplished as Floyd is as a songwriter, take a look at his tour schedule and you'll see that he has never let his writing interfere with his first love: playing live. Chuck and his band, The Liar's Club, currently perform throughout his old stomping grounds in Oklahoma and Texas, where the songs from his debut album "Tonight An Angel Fell" continue to climb higher and higher on the Texas music charts.
