The Marshall Tucker Band is a Southern rock band.

Originally from Spartanburg, South Carolina, the band formed in 1972, and soon signed with Capricorn Records. In 1973 they released their first EP, simply titled "The Marshall Tucker band."

Compared to Southern rock pioneers and label-mates the Allman Brothers Band, Marshall Tucker had a more country and western feel, with the flute being a key lead instrument in their sound.
