It all rubbed off. As most great singer-songwriters do, Chet eventually landed in Nashville, playing at Brown’s Diner as often as not, which is where Nanci Griffith heard him and hooked him up with her guitarist and producer Thomm Jutz, and her drummer and co-producer, Pat McInerney. The Gibson Brothers heard his haunting “Ring The Bell” and took it as the single and title track to their latest release.
Chet’s sound evokes the finest Merle Haggard dance-hall moments on “Take Me Down To The Liquor Store” and the sound of the dark woods on the mysterious, minor-key “Game Bird”. A first class guitarist and singer with an avalanche of tunes and country-western know-how in his back pocket, Chet is branching out from Nashville and bringing his music to where real people live, as all troubadours must do.
