Guitarist and songwriter Stuckey - - explains about “Truth Is A Misty Mountain” - which is currently being played on radio and before live audiences across the south - that the concept behind the lyrics is simple: "It’s about a relationship that has gone awry. “A misty mountain is when you think you’re going in one direction, but you’re really going in another,” explains Joey. That real direction is about being misled. “The song is something people can relate to,” says Joey. “I think people have a lot of things in common. We all share similar experiences that bind us together as a race of people, and deep pain is a powerful emotion that I sing about on this song.”

Stuckey has been performing this song, like a hit song, since the mid 1990s. When he first recorded it live in 2000, Joey brought his guitar to the studios of Georgia Public Radio in Atlanta, where it aired live. A decade later, the favored ballad is the same recording that aired live on Georgia Public Radio.

With no sight or sense of smell (the result of a brain tumor as an infant), Joey Stuckey - - refused to acknowledge the word “disability” growing up. He graduated from high school at the age of 14 and went on to study guitar from renowned guitarists Terry Cantwell, Steven Crowell and Stanley Jordan. His playing style developed into that of rocker Jeff Beck and a jazzier Wes Montgomery, while his vocal influences range from Mel Torme to Gregg Allman. The late music impresario Ian Copeland, founder of Frontier Booking International (FBI) and brother of The Police’s Stewart Copeland once said Stuckey was one of the best guitarists around.

Bolstered by talent, drive, experience and an aptitude for his virtuoso guitar playing, jazz music performances, understanding the craft of composing hit songs and popular songs, Joey Stuckey - - and his band have opened for legendary artists like Ted Nugent, Bad Company, Trisha Yearwood, James Brown, Clarence Carter, the B-52’s, and many others.
