Eighteen months ago, singer, songwriter and syndicated radio personality Chuck Wicks was looking at a very different reality than the one that exists today. Following a nearly-fatal car crash that left Wicks with a broken neck, he could barely muster the strength to raise his head. His dedication, rehabilitation, perseverance and a new outlook on life helped the former athlete return not only with the strength to compete as one of only 11 contenders in NBC’s “IRONMAN: Quest For Kona,” yet it also led to a ‘why wait?’ mentality for the recording artist. With that lust for life fully embraced, Wicks returns with his first new music in nearly two years, “Better Than Flowers,” released everywhere tomorrow (Oct. 12).
