Rockabilly Hall of Famer Buzz Cason is proudly releasing his new studio album Record Machine to global radio exclusively via AirPlay Direct.  This is his second album to be released via Plowboy Records.

"For the second time in our label's history, Buzz Cason has delivered an outstanding, genre bending album that we are so proud to release to the world. He is sometimes referred to as a "hidden gem", but for those in the know, he is a national treasure. Please enjoy!"  -- R. Shannon Pollard – President of Plowboy Records

Record Machine is special to me and hopefully it will be a positive experience for the listener,” says Buzz. “The record is a slice of my musical life, incorporating emotions and thoughts of recent times as well as just fun times recorded in the studio. Once again I have the support of extremely talented players and writers on this set of songs… [Guitarist] Anthony Crawford plays a key role in the record as well as the guys from my band contributing on several tracks... As the title cut says: From the first time I heard a needle hit vinyl: ‘I've been in love with music ever since that day!’ ”

“Buzz Cason is a master songwriter, performer and lives up to the title, ‘Living Legend’ on his new record.  This is another fantastic release by Plowboy Records.” -- Robert Weingartz, Chairman / Creator - AirPlay Direct

With a career six decades rich as a performer, songwriter, and publisher, Buzz Cason has touched upon every facet of the music industry, as well as influenced countless musicians and fans. Coined as “The Father Of Nashville Rock” by Alamo Jones of Sirius XM’s “Outlaw Country,” this Americana / Roots Rock singer-songwriter has created songs that have gone on to live beyond the genre, from the classic “Everlasting Love” (co-written with Mac Gayden), which has been recorded by U2, Gloria Estefan, Robert Knight, and Carl Carlton, and has charted in every decade since its inception, to “Soldier of Love” (co-written with Tony Moon), which has been recorded by The Beatles, Pearl Jam, Marshall Crenshaw, and Arthur Alexander. To this day, Buzz is the only songwriter credited with cuts by The Beatles, Pearl Jam, AND U2.

As a producer, Buzz left his stamp on Jimmy Buffett’s Down To Earth and High Cumberland Jubilee albums (he also co-wrote a few songs), and he even produced Buddy Holly’s former band The Crickets, and toured England with them as their singer. He’s sung back-up for Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, John Denver, Kenny Rogers, Roy Orbison, George Jones, and Leon Russell, and was even the voice of Alvin of the Chipmunks!
