The Chuck Nation Band is a world class ensemble of award winning performers and one of the most entertaining and versatile groups in bluegrass/acoustic music. They made their Carnegie Hall debut performance in New York City in 2015, and performed at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville in 2016. Chuck is a member of the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame, a two-time Georgia State Fiddle Champion, Georgia State Mandolin Champion, and a Louisiana State Fiddle Champion. They are 2016 Georgia Music Awards Nominees in the Americana/Bluegrass category.

Whether it's old favorites, modern songs, or original material, the Chuck Nation Band delivers professional grade, lively music that engages and entertains an audience from the first moment they take the stage. Close harmony vocals and superb instrumental playing are the hallmarks of their distinctive sound. The band is based in North Georgia and has performed over 450 shows since 2010, including their second international tour in 2014 covering sixteen cities in Ireland. They have recorded 3 CD projects: On A High High Mountain, Thinking About Home, and their latest, Beneath The Tennessee Moon.

In addition to singing and songwriting, Chuck is equally skilled at playing fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and guitar. He has shared the stage and played with bluegrass luminaries Bill Monroe, Mac Wiseman, Sam Bush, Vassar Clements, and many others.

Chuck has performed at the Grand Old Opry, New Orleans World's Fair, Savannah Music Festival, theater productions of Smoke On The Mountain, Always Patsy Cline, and The High Lonesome Mass. He has opened shows for folks ranging from Ernest Tubb to Mother Maybelle Carter, Mac Davis, John Hartford, Charley Pride, John Anderson, and more. In the 1970's Chuck was a member of the historic band—The Bluegrass Alliance (whose alumni includes Vince Gill, Sam Bush, & Tony Rice) which paved the way for the modern "Newgrass" music style.

Susan Nation is an acclaimed singer and songwriter who has performed Americana and bluegrass music around the world. Much of the band's repertoire comes from her songwriting skills. She has her own publishing company, Only One Nation Music, and her songs have been recorded by others. Susan's singing and her solid bass playing provide a firm foundation to the band. She is an audience favorite, and with Chuck she has performed at the New Orleans World's Fair, Savannah Music Festival, toured Japan and Ireland, and played in countless churches, conferences, and festivals.

Jody Hughes is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist who performs bluegrass, solo jazz guitar, and popular music in various ensembles throughout the Southeast. He has performed at the Grand Old Opry, Merlefest, and the Philadelphia Folk Festival. Jody is a Merlefest Banjo Competition winner, and is a three-time winner of the Georgia State Championship on both guitar and banjo.

Libby Nation sings and plays many instruments equally well, has performed on Late Night with David Letterman, the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Oprah Winfrey's Oscar party, Royal Albert Hall in London, and has toured professionally in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Libby also teaches piano, guitar, and voice in Atlanta.

What Others Are Saying About The Chuck Nation Band:

"In a rousing display of fiddling pyrotechnics at breakneck speed, Chuck Nation "burned the house down" as the sparks flew off his bow in a jaw-dropping virtuosic fiddling display. The audience loved it and roared in approval." - New York Concert Review

"Few acts work so hard, entertain so well, and elicit such enthusiastic, appreciative response. The standards, the little-known, the requests, originals—they wrapped every number in sweet harmonies and dazzling instrumentals! Everyone left feeling they had shared something special that night." -Gregg Averett, Acoustics at Oak's End

I hired them for a corporate event my company held at the Chateau Elan near Atlanta. From beginning to end, the band members were extremely professional and a pleasure to work with. Our clients loved the music and I noticed a few of them even taking videos with their phones. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a great group of talented musicians.

The band played at our wedding reception and they were awesome! Our wedding guests were on their feet, dancing before we arrived to the reception, all of our guests really enjoyed the "unexpected" entertainment (we kept the band a secret from most of the guests). They responded to all emails and requests throughout our wedding planning promptly and followed through with our requests for songs. They even were gracious enough to lead us in a candle lighting ceremony for a memorial for my parents (which was beautiful!). They also were accommodating to song requests during their performance. Thank you for making our reception everything we hoped it would be!
