Buzz Cason began his musical career as a singer in the late 1950s and early 60s.  He formed The Casuals in Nashville and later sang with a group called The Statues for Liberty.  As he continued to sing, Buzz wrote songs, some of which he would have his singing groups perform. When he teamed with Mac Gayden to write “Everlasting Love,” they asked Robert Knight to record the song, and it went to number one of the charts.  In 1968, the group Love Affair covered the song, as did Carl Carlton some four years later, and both records hit the charts. When Buzz established the recording studio, Creative Workshop in Nashville in 1970, he produced and provided materials for a long list of performers such as Dolly Parton, The Judds and Emmylou Harris.  In 2004, Buzz published his audio biography entitled “Living the Rock ‘N Roll Dream: The Adventures of Buzz Cason.”
