    1977 The Marshall Tucker Band's Country cross-over hit "Heard It In a Love Song" peaks at number 14 in the US. Interestingly, there is no one named Marshall Tucker in the band. The group named themselves after the previous tenant of their rehearsal hall, after finding a key tag with his name on it.
