Buzz Cason

“Buzz Cason never concerned himself too much with musical boundaries. He just lived and breathed music. He formed one of Nashville’s first rock & roll bands, the Casuals, who also backed Brenda Lee. He cut pop songs as an artist and sang background vocals for Elvis and Orbison. And he struck gold as a songwriter, penning evergreen R&B songs like ‘Everlasting Love’ and ‘Soldier of Love’ as well as country hits like ‘Love’s the Only House’ for Martina McBride. A longtime studio owner and significant publisher as well, Buzz helped shape and expand the sound of Nashville in countless ways across seven decades.”
