Album Notes
Producer/Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist Gary Tackett has graced every stage from the Oakland Coliseum to the Grand Ole Opry. His love for music started at an early age, listening to Merle Haggard, AC/DC, KISS, David Lindley, Ry Cooder, Duane Allman, Albert Collins, Joe Walsh, ZZ Top, and grew stronger after moving to Los Angeles when he was 18, and playing in a band with famous blues producer Dennis Walker(Dennis produced Robert Cray, and BB King, as well as Lowell Fulson and Phillip Walker). As a sideman, Gary has played guitar for Merle Haggard (Blue Jungle Album), Vern Gosdin, Eddy Raven, Tammy Cochran, Billy Currington, and Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours. His no holds barred style of guitar playing (Chickin' Pickin' Clawin' Slidin') and love for Blues/R&B blend into what Gary calls Funktry (Blues, Country, and Funk) style of playing... Gary also invented the D-Slyde (Takslyd) which was licensed to D'Addario/Planet Waves many years ago.

Gary's sound has been described as Delbert McClinton meets Eric Clapton at a Merle Haggard concert. "I write what I know, and what I've been through". "I've been writing since I was 12 years old, and have been lucky enough to play with some of the greatest players and singers in the world".

Gary's parents played Honky Tonks from Sacramento to Bakersfield on the weekends, and then in church every Sunday morning. "Mama was a preacher, and Daddy was a country singer". "My folks were from Arkansas, so everything was said a little slower, and the cooking was always good". "Alot of songwritin' and pickin' was going on as my dad had guys from Buck Owen.s band and Merle Haggard's band playing with him all the time". Gary spent a few years in LA. then moved to the SF Bay Area and started the band California Cowboys playing the Saddle Rack(Won the Marlboro Contest 2 Yrs in a row and compete in Nashville against a young singer named Ronnie Dunn-Brooks and Dunn, who won). He then moved to Nashville in 1994 playing "Lower Broad" and touring with major country artists Vern Gosdin, Eddy Raven, Tammy Cochran, Antsy McClain. While in Nashville, Gary was also the Regional Broadcast Licensing Director for SESAC. Gary then moved back to the Bay Area and was in the house band Diablo Road at California's largest nightclub, the Saddle Rack in Fremont CA, as well as having his own band featuring Myron Dove(Bass-Santana/Robben Ford), Walfredo Reyes Jr (Drums- Santana/Steve Winwood, David Lindley,Chicago), Brian Collier(Drums- Con Funk Shun, Lionel Ritchie).

"Blue Eyed Sole" is complete and is an amazing showcase Rockin Roadhouse driving guitars and gravelly vocals, backed by the world class rhythm section of Mark Beckett(Drum- Son of Legendary Muscle Shoals Producer Barry Beckett), Scotty Simpson (Bass- Travis Tritt, Oak Ridge Boys), Robbie Kearns (Bass- Lynard Skynard, Sheryl Crow), Rich Redmond(Percussion- Jason Aldean, Bryan Adams). Recorded by Michael St Leon at Switchyard Studios. Michael engineered and mixed Buddy Guy's latest Grammy Winning Album, and Too Slim and The Taildraggers).
