Chuck Aly

Vice President

Country Aircheck VP/GM Chuck Aly helped launch the radio and music industry trade publication from a Nashville coffee shop in August, 2006. Six days after leaving the now-defunct Radio & Records following its purchase by Billboard, the Country Aircheck team published their first Country Aircheck Weekly. Today, Country Aircheck publishes daily news emails, a quarterly print magazine and the weekly news, charts and analysis upon which industry readers have come to depend. The company even has office space.

Prior to Country Aircheck, Aly served three years at R&R and six at Music Row. A recovering publicist, he got his music business start with PR firms Shock Ink and Force, where he learned how to take no for an answer. He holds a Recording Industry degree from Middle Tennessee State University, which named him "Outstanding Senior" in 1994. He is a Leadership Music alumnus and serves on the boards of Country Radio Seminar and the Academy of Country Music.
