Buzz Cason: An American Treasure
Alamo Jones of Sirius XM's Outlaw Country and others have called Buzz Cason the Father of Nashville rock. On his new Plowboy Records release Record Machine, Buzz takes the listener on a journey through the land of Americana. His previous albums have all charted and received heavy airplay on Sirius XM and Americana radio. In 2014, Buzz was honored by the Country Music Hall of Fame as part of their Poets & Prophets series. Buzz will be promoting the new record by touring solo and with his band The Love Notes. His performances are made up of his hits, the new songs, stories of past adventures and of course, a few jokes.
In a career spanning six decades, Buzz Cason has been living the rock & roll dream. He formed Nashville's first rock & roll band "The Casuals" in the mid 50s which became a successful touring act and Brenda Lee's backing band. He then started a solo career with the hit "Look For A Star" under the name Garry Miles.
Buzz is also a successful songwriter. His most well-known song is the classic "Everlasting Love" (co-written by Mac Gayden). Another one of Buzz's songs, "Soldier of Love" (co-written by Tony Moon), was recorded by Arthur Alexander and the Beatles. He also wrote a Country #1 for Tommy Overstreet ("Ann, Don't Go Runnin'") and hits for Mel Tillis, T.G. Shephard, the McCarters and many others.
Buzz produced Clifford Curry ("She Shot A Hold In My Soul"), Van & Titus ("Cry Baby Cry") and Jimmy Buffett's albums "Down to Earth" and "High Cumberland Jubilee" for which he also co-wrote several songs.
In the 21st century Buzz has released a string of critically acclaimed American albums of original material including Troubadour Heart (2014) and Record Machine (2015) on Plowboy Records.
