ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bob Cheevers Bio
"I don't know if these stories are true...but they happened to me."

Bob Cheevers has earned a place in the landscape now called Americana Music having charted Top 20 in that genre with his last two CDs. Bob grew up in Memphis and got a soul full of music not only from the icons of his youth such as Elvis, Jerry Lee and Johnny Cash but also from his Mother, who was a radio star during the Great Depression performing with the Big Bands of that era. A hundred year old photo of his Grandmother graces the cover of his Gettysburg To Graceland CD. From an early age, Bob's creative feet were firmly planted in Mississippi Delta mud, and his songs began to feature characters whose lives reflected the life style along the rivers of the South over the past hundred years.
After starting his first band during college, Bob and his musical direction migrated west following a dream that took him from the pop field in Hollywood to country and roots music in Nashville with stops inbetween to gather the tools and trophies of his career. Among his statues and certificates of accomplishment is an Emmy for the song "Big City Gambler" which was voted Best Musical Composition of 1986 by NARAS. Several decades as a writer have seen over a thousand songs born.
Using his organizational skills in the late 1980's,The Bob Cheevers Sacramento Songwriter Songwriter Showcase ran for two years featuring high profile regional and national hit writers and served as Bob's springboard to Nashville. After moving to Nashville and in addition to pursuing his own musical career, Bob organized and produced a yearly benefit series of shows atThe Bluebird Cafe for Nashville's Alive Hospice Oganization featuring Nashville's most famous writers, artists and performers. Now in its ninth year, its still The Bluebird's most popular series. As a producer, publisher, singer, songwriter and seasoned performer, Bob has found his own voice spinning rootsy, blues-flavoured tales of the Delta in a conversational lauguage of the heart.
