Nashville song man Buzz Cason-music publisher (Southern Writers Group), studio owner (Creative Workshop) and hit songwriter-has been a fixture in town since the 1957 inception of his band, The Casuals (Nashville’s first rock and roll band). His songs have been recorded by the likes of Robert Knight (pop-soul classic “Everlasting Love”), The Beatles, Martina McBride, Gloria Estefan, Arthur Alexander, Gary Allan and many more. His Palo Duro debut, Hats Off to Hank, compiles 15 tracks that slip-slide from acoustic blues-boogie to the Jimmy Buffett-esque “I Love the South.” Vocally, he’s warm, raspy and engaging, and fans of Billy Joe Shaver and Steve Forbert will find a kindred spirit. For a great read and to learn more about Cason’s life journey in music, check out his autobiography Living the Rock ‘N’ Roll Dream: The Adventures of Buzz Cason.
