Celebrating his 50th year as a songwriter with over 3,000 songs to his credit, Bob Cheevers’ new 5-disc, box-set is appropriately called “Fifty Years”. The retrospective album covers half a century of his writing featuring almost 100 songs. Growing up in the R&B flavored city of Memphis was followed by 25 years in the West Coast pop field and then 16 years as a journeyman writer in Nashville which led him to what he describes as his “wonderful life in Austin”. A veteran of touring the UK (this February being his 12 year), he has earned the respect of his peers world wide. His Austin pal Ray Wylie Hubbard says “Bob Cheevers is one cool scarecrow gypsy poet who writes and sings the romantic, beautiful truth. When he releases a record, I listen.”
