Marshall Tucker Band

The Marshall Tucker Band’s 1973 classic “Can’t You See” has been named the ‘Greatest Southern Rock Song’ in a new list by UltimateClassicRock.com. The track — which has been a mainstay on FM radio upon it’s release on the band’s self-titled debut album — has often been mistaken for being an Allman Brothers Band song, actually was never a hit, “peaking” upon release at a disappointing Number 108 on the Billboard singles charts. Coming in second was Lynyrd Skynyrd’s 1974 mission statement, “Sweet Home Alabama,” with 1975 Outlaws favorite “Green Grass & High Tides” rounding out the Top Three.

Co-founder and singer Doug Gray is thrilled with the honor, telling the website: “We are over the top with this announcement from Ultimate Classic Rock. It certainly lets us all know that ‘Can’t You See’ is and will continue to be appreciated for a very long time.”

Doug Gray told us that he’s never been ashamed to be known as a Southern Rock act: “No, absolutely not. We are a Southern Rock band — it’s that simple. We’re a band that’s not afraid to be hooked to the Allman Brothers, not afraid to be hooked to Charlie Daniels. What would I be — right now — if I didn’t have my background and roots into where we’re coming from, and try to put that in the music. I can’t be somebody we’re not.”

The Marshall Tucker Band will next perform on Friday and Saturday night (October 5th and 6th) in Steelville, Missouri at the Wildwood Springs Lodge.
