Album Notes
"The first time I heard Cheley was around four years ago at a writer's club in Nashville. I was instantly drawn to her voice. I've heard literally thousands of singers during my career as a songwriter/producer and I've heard a lot of very good singers. Every now and then however, you hear someone who REALLY makes youwant to listen to what they're saying and Cheley does that. I'm definately a fan and once you hear her, you will be too."

- Reese Wilson, writer #1 single "She Can't Say I Didn't Cry" recorded by Rick Trevino, #1 single "Not On Your Love" recorded by Jeff Carson, Top 5 single "Places I've Never Been" recorded by Mark Wills, Top 10 single "It's All In Your Head" recorded by Diamond Rio as well as cuts by Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Tanya Tucker, Clay Walker, Aaron Tippin, and Neal McCoy.

"There are alot of singer/songwriters who try to copy what they've heard and don't tap into what they feel. Cheley Tackett is NOT one of these people. She has a great voice and a great talent for songwriting that will kill you!"

- Chris Wallin, writer "I'm Tryin'" recorded by Trace Adkins (and currently in the country Top 40), "That's What Brother's Do" recorded by Confederate Railroad, and "3 Seconds" recorded by Sammy Kershaw and Lorrie Morgan.

"In Nashville, they talk about a song giving you "chillbumps," and that's what happens every time I hear Cheley Tackett. It's a combination of her bluesy voice, sweet soulful ballads, uptempo swampy grooves, and disarming wry humor. I've worked with Cheley at a bunch of shows and she's always got something new, something that makes me ask, 'How come more people don't know about this woman?' For now, I'm grateful to be included in the secret."

- Steve Key, writer "33, 45, 78" recorded by Kathy Mattea and host of Washington D.C.'s Red Rover Concert Series

"Cheley Tackett writes songs that actually matter. An artist with a fresh approach, but with a respect for the tradition that is country music."

-Michael Taylor, Director of A&R, Sony Music Australia

"In a music world of marketing hype and fluff it is always refreshing to hear someone brave enough to sing a song for the song's sake. Cheley Tackett is one of those artists. Even through my ears I can feel her looking me dead straight in the eyes, and letting me in on it as if I were the only one listening. She sings from the earth, nothing watered down, all from the gut. Cheley Tackett and a song seem to be one...listen to the final cut and it will all become clear...That's when I knew it all."

-Thom Bresh, Award winning Guitarist/Producer/Fan

A wide variety of songs, sharing a common thread of experience
The songs on the CD are diverse, but all seem to share an emotionally honest, quintessentially human spirit-- one that will be understood by anyone who has loved, aspired, or just grown up. Tackett's soulful, evocative voice perfectly captures the varying moods, from the earthy "Mississippi Sunshine" to the wistful "Penny Wishes."

Ken Lawrence

Songs for those who want to know it all!
Hi Cheley's fans, Ken the braille encyclopedia of rock, country, americana, and soul here. the little title in the CD baby item says it best, country music just got better. If you get this one it will be a non stop listen. What a wonderful voice and songs. Yeah this is music for those who want to know it all, when it comes to good music.

Little Johnny Kantreed

Amazing songwriter!
Cheley Tackett is one of the best kept secrets in Nashville! But, the world needs to know about this amazing songwriter/performer. Songs from the heart, with a depth that is matched by few. This CD is highly recommended!

Courtney A

It is a cd I love and listen to that reminds me of home and growing up. The lyrics touch your heart with such passion and truth. If you need convincing, see her live. You will not be disappointed!!

Tina Jett

Her smooth, soulful voice is a comfort to anyone who hears it.
A true, genuine, wonderful person with a beautiful soul and a voice to match. Cheley's music and lyrics stirs something deep inside you without even trying. She definitely has one of the most soothing, comforting sounds you will ever hear.

Amy Brazelton

I was pleased that the arrangements of the songs on this CD were so well done. I have several friends who play live and when they record their own album it sounds totally different - the production takes away from the essence of the song itself. This isn't the case with Cheley Tackett. The productions are great and the songs are incredibly well-written.
