While the band had reached the height of its commercial success by the end of the decade, it has recorded and performed continuously under various line-ups for 50 years.  Lead vocalist Doug Gray remains the only original member still active with the band.

Songs like "Can't You See", "Heard It In a Love Song", "Fire on the Mountain" and "Take The Highway" were all hit singles for The Marshall Tucker Band.
