Billy & Buzz Sing Buddy Available August 17
Buzz's collaborative album with fellow songwriter Billy Swan will be released on August 17 by ArenA Recordings. Billy & Buzz Sing Buddy is their tribute to Buddy Holly's music and features their fresh takes on ten of Holly's classic songs plus their original song "Thank You Buddy". The album was recorded at the legendary Creative Workshop recording studio in the Berry Hill area of Nashville and features a guest appearance by original Crickets drummer Jerry Allison.
Buzz produced the Crickets' 1964 British hit "They Call Her LaBamba" on Liberty Records and performed with them that year on a thirty day tour of the UK including a show at the Royal Albert Hall.
"The first song I played in the summer of 1957, on my first tour with the Casuals, was 'That'll Be The Day" by Buddy Holly and the Crickets, and they were on my musical radar from then on! Their music was far reaching and touched the hearts of listeners all over the world." – Buzz Cason
