Hats Off To Hank Reviews

"there are no throwaways here...The instrumentalists do a great job in each song of enhancing the simplicity of Cason's lyrics...the music is timeless.."-
~ American Roots.com

"Vocally he's warm, raspy and engaging, and fans of Billy Joe Shaver and Steve Forbert will find a kindred spirit."
~ American Songwriter Magazine

" This is the full sound of an old pro having fun. It's a party you'll want to join."
~ Midwest Record Reviews

"Cason has a strong, rugged voice, and a way with his harmonica. Some of his songs could be classics in the vein as Eric Clapton or even Johnny Cash....Buzz Cason has produced a solid album that's definitely going to make a lot of people happy."
~ MusicReviewer.com

" Cason wrote all 15 of the short, radio ready songs and produced 13 of them; his son Parker Cason produced two. Cason adds acoustic guitar, keyboards, and a mean harmonica to his vocals. Among other musicians, Colin Whinnery's lead guitar work has a hint of danger to it without ever being over-played. All the music is solid as the songs....Sounds like he's having the time of his life."-
~BUDDY Magazine

"HATS OFF TO HANK , a rather misleading title which suggests a tribute album to Hank Williams, is a collection of modest, life-observing, quirky self - penned songs played and sung in a loose, informal way with a small ensemble. Musically, it's a fairly eclectic mix of rock, pop, folk-tinged pop and country which seems approriate for someone who has had success in all of these fields. ...Standout cuts include "Ain't Nobody", a cut with a lowdown feel about the claustrophobia of apartment life, "I Love The South", a lovely, delicate dedication to the Southland, the noisy, rambunctious, slightly shambolic but highly biograohical "Playin' Music" .."me,, I got on the radio, makin' more money than I could ever spend," and the equally wild road song, "Texas Wildflower", which namechecks many of Cason's musical friends and heroes"

College Performance/Guest Lecturer Reviews

"Buzz Cason is one of the most fascinating and interesting individuals out of Nashville.....he has lived "The Rock and Roll Dream," and can share the history and personalities that have shaped rock music and contemporary culture since the late 1950's. Buzz has a genuine understanding having performed with many of the great rock artists over the years. His writing and producing for major rock acts makes him a rare person who can tell the up's and down's of rock and popular music. Buzz combines his history and knowledge with a sincere Christian witness for today's college students. Buzz's compassion for people and the Christian gospel makes for an eclectic blend of how and why rock music has had such an impact on America's youth for the past forty plus years."
~ Michael V. Carter, President, Campbellsville University, Kentucky

“I would like to take this opportunity to spread the word of Buzz Cason and his wonderful book “Living the Rock ‘n Roll Dream”. I use Buzz Cason as an example of a true renaissance man in my classes at MTSU every semester because Buzz really has excelled in so many areas. As a songwriter, he has had songs recorded by the Beatles, U2, Gloria Estefan, Pearl Jam and Robert Knight. As a publisher he has signed songs like “Honey” and “Little Green Apples”. He traveled all over the world as an entertainer with Brenda Lee in the early years. He has been the voice of “Alvin” on “Chipmunk” records. He is a recording artist, studio owner, a record producer and if that’s not all, a racecar driver. Buzz came to MTSU and spoke to students and they were thoroughly entertained and informed. Buzz tells stories that give quality insight into the recording industry. Above all, Buzz is a really nice person.”

“Buzz Cason spoke (and performed) at my SURVEY OF MUSIC BUSINESS class at Trevecca Nazarene University. He was electric as he presented various aspects of his highly successful career: his personal story, entrepreneurship, performing and songwriting skills, down-to-earth honesty and sense of humor. The students were enthralled. The hour sped by and was easily one of the most meaningful classes of the year.”
~ Jim Foglesong, Director/Music Business, Trevecca Nazarene University
