Hi, everyone! My name's Chuck Dauphin, and for the past two decades, I've been involved in the country music industry as a radio personality, a record promoter, and as a journalist. Long before that, though, I was (gasp!) a fan! You know that kid in school that was studying the charts a little more than he was studying English or Geometry? Yes, that was me!
I started my career at WDKN in Dickson, TN in 1991, and have been involved with radio stations like WNKX / Centerville, TN, WFGZ / Dickson, TN, and nationwide over the Interstate Radio Network. I have always been fascinated with all things country -- from Roy Acuff to Hee Haw to Carrie Underwood.
I'm honored to become the newest part of Billboard's country music family. Join me on The 615 as we take a look at the hottest of the hot in country, occasionally shine the spotlight on someone you haven't heard from in a while… and introduce you to the next Taylor Swifts out there. It's all here.
