Tales of the New West
is the result of over a decade of C & W songwriting by the four Coreys: Arthur and Margie, and Sharon and Alton. Art and Alton Corey are brothers who have been writing songs for over 25 years, and during most of that time co-writing several tunes with Alton’s wife, Sharon, who also has an extensive canon of her own poetry. Art’s wife, Margie, also an accomplished writer of poems and verses, joined the song writing effort in 1993, making more contributions to the group’s growing body of material. Their most notable effort to date was the 1994 indie hit “Dark Desert Sky” recorded by Bill Scarbrough. Dennis Kahler, who wrote or co-wrote the lyrics to three of the songs on this CD (#1, 2, and 6) is a long-time friend and co-writer who has compiled a significant list of songwriting credits on his own and currently is the President of the Alabama Songwriters Association. Dennis has often collaborated with the Coreys several times over the past four years. The Coreys can be contacted at email@example.com or (626) 858-9274. Dennis can be reached at (256) 352-4873.
Buddy Jewell is an accomplished singer/songwriter of pop, rock, and country ballads who has paid his dues singing in dance halls and honky tonks from Dallas to Denver. A native Arkansan, Buddy has made a significant impact as a vocalist in Nashville, where he has become one of the most recognizable names and voices in the “Music City” recording community. He has recorded a wide array of demonstrational tunes for many of the music industry’s top songwriters, including Don Schlitz, Carol Bayer Sager, Steve Seskin, Mark D. Sanders, and the godfather of country tunesmiths, Harlan Howard.
Buddy’s rich and passionate tenor voice and commanding stage presence have earned him high marks as a singer who can dramatize a song in the tradition of the great western balladeers such as Marty Robbins, Waylon Jennings, Kenny Rogers and Rex Allen. Buddy’s voice was featured on two of comedian Bill Engvall’s hit singles/videos: “I’m a Cowboy” and “Hollywood Indian Guide,” and he has opened in concert for Alabama, as well as appeared on TNN’s “Crook & Chase. Buddy’s vocal performances have drawn tremendous acclaim this Spring on the “Nashville Star” singer/songwriter contest airing weekly on Saturday nights on the USA Channel. At the conclusion of the last episode of “Nashville Star” Buddy was awarded via national popular vote the contest’s Grand Prize---a performing artist contract with Sony Music and a “debut CD” to be produced by Clint Black. Currently, Buddy’s new Sony single CD featuring the top 20 song entitled “Can I Help Pour Out the Rain?” written by him for his daughter Lacey continues to move up radio C&W charts.
