Doug Gray Is NRA Country

Music lovers—especially those in the South—know the Marshall Tucker Band for their definitive blend of rock, rhythm & blues, jazz, country and gospel. Lead singer Doug Gray and the band influenced major country acts like Alabama, Confederate Railroad and Travis Tritt and developed a 50-year friendship with NRA Life member Charlie Daniels. In fact, the Marshall Tucker Band was slated to tour with the Charlie Daniels Band in 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic derailed those plans. Having earned the rank of an Army sergeant E-5 in Vietnam, Gray is quick to honor and recognize fellow veterans and understands the importance of the Second Amendment. Gray recently answered a few questions for NRA Country’s Vanessa Shahidi.

The Marshall Tucker Band: how to spend a million dollars on cocaine, pot and Scotch whisky


"Marshall Tucker is 94 years old and still alive,” marvelled Doug Gray, the straight-talking frontman of the southern rock band that co-opted Tucker’s name, when Classic Rock met him in 2011. “I met him five years ago for a documentary on the band. He told me: ‘I know you were dogs on the road, but I’m glad you didn’t ruin my name.’ I was relieved that he didn’t find out what dogs we really were.”

“Rednecks work their ass off, out in the fields,” says Doug Gray, the sole original member and dusty road voice who created the yearning Southern rock tilt of The Marshall Tucker Band. “When you’re raised like that, you really dig into a project. For me, the original band was only together for eight years. Forty-eight years later, we’re still out taking this music to the people – and they still want it.” [CLICK FOR MORE]
