ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I grew up in the low country of South Carolina. My Daddy and Grandaddy were both Pentecostal preachers, (which pretty much means directions to the churches where they preached and I went usually included crossing rail-road tracks and taking dirt roads) ... so my earliest musical influence was in church ... mama taking my hands and showing me how to clap on 2 and 4 ... teaching me how to sing harmony ... singin' I'll Fly Away, Amazing Grace and Just As I Am ... always on the backbeat ... and soon as I could sit where i wanted to in church ... from the backseat ...

I started singing solo in church before I was five years old and Daddy should've known better ... I've never stopped ... well not for long anyway.

The first music I ever owned was a Beatles 45 that had "If I Fell" and I think another ballad ... like "And I Love Her" or something like that ...can't remember but I do remember my mama coming into my room and listening and saying these guys were good ... mama sure knew what was good ... she turned me on to Sinatra and The Platters ... and I am sure she was in love with Dean Martin ...

The first album I ever owned was Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison record and it was the coolest thing ever til mama heard the cussin' on the record and took it from me ...

I listened to everything I could get away with in a Pentecostal preacher's home ... but I have to say ... it wasn't strict by Pentecostal standards ... our family loved music of all kinds ... I can even remember some lady in Daddy's church fussin' at him about the kind of music the preacher's children listened to and how we were a bad influence ... I don't think it fazed Daddy one bit ... Daddy's the one who turned me on to Isaac Hayes! "Hot Buttered Soul" and "I Stand Accused" and believe me ... Ike's rap was way cool years before Barry White got famous for a commercialized version ... not to take anything away from Barry White ... but check out any "Ike's Rap" which shows up on most Isaac Hayes records.

I listened to The Beatles, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, the STAX stuff, CCR, Bob Dylan, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard, Jim Croce, Elton John, Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen, and others too numerous to mention... and they all influenced me and what I like in music...

I hit the bars with my guitar when I was 17 and played the beach circuit for several years before moving to Nashville in 1984. I went to Belmont University and studied Music Business and Finance. In 1988 I met producer Marshall Morgan, who signed me as a staff songwriter to Taste Auction Music.

In 1992 I opened my own publishing company, Wacissa River Music, Inc. In 2006 I started Chuck Cannon Music which covers all my new publishing and production efforts. These are my publishing companies and they have exactly one writer and he is all I can put up with ... I look at him every morning and say, "get off your ass!" he looks back from the mirror and says, "get of my ass!!" ...

One of my greatest honors was to be elected President of the Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI, 2001-2003). I still serve on their Executive Board and Legislative Committees.

The honors my songs have garnered include BMIs Eight-Million-Air award for the song "I Love The Way You Love Me" which was the Academy of Country Music's 1993 Song of the Year and went on to become an international hit when BOYZONE released it in Europe as a single in 1999, where it stayed at the top of the charts for over 3 months.

I've had numerous multi-week number one songs and many other BMI Million-Air awards but of all the songs I've written, the ones that consistently bring me back to what I love about music are the ones I haven't written yet ...

I love what I do and I do what I love ... and I make a living like that ... I'm still amazed ... but even more, I am truly grateful to everyone who has helped me ...

I've made alot of friends and still have most of them ... and they're the best of them ...

PLEASE BUY MY MUSIC ! ! !
It's Easy ...just go to the Store on www.chuckcannon.com ...if you buy it there, send a request for an autograph and I will be happy to oblige ...I promise the CD sounds better than any download ...

If you like the convenience of downloading, my music may be found on iTunes, Digstation and CD Baby as of this writing, with more ways to come ...

Please don't steal music ...you don't need anyone to tell you when you've done it ... you know ... and why would you want to know something like that? rock on ... ... ...

peace~c

This CD delivers in every way! Songwriting, performance, production, and most importantly, in the "Wow" factor! Buy this CD! You won't regret it!

Love and Money
It's killer....simply killer! I've been wearing it out....I regret I wasn't able to catch Chuck Cannon live at 3rd and Lindsley a while back.

Love and Money
I screwed up and didn't give this album 5 stars on the review I just submitted. It would get 10 stars if that choice were available. This album is killer.....I'm an old rock and roll guy and this album really speaks to me....lyrically and musically.

God Shaped Hole
Refreshingly inspirational...it's like nothing I've ever heard w/such consistency...real and attention grabbing---a musicians, lyricist' and singer's album...no doubt one of the best I've heard yet lest you count Love and Money...it's a KEEPER too!
