After pounding the musical pavement in Nashville for over 15 years and becoming frustrated with the “cookie-cutter” mentality of Music Row, Cheevers had moved to Austin in 2008 seeking fertile creative soil to revitalize his work. “While I love Nashville, I needed to move away from the chart-oriented songwriting mill into a world where artists are encouraged to write from the heart rather than writing for the charts. Moving to Texas felt right from the start. So many of my pals, like Walt Wilkins and Kevin Welch, had already moved there and I felt enormous creative freedom simply by being in that community of artists.”
If any residual doubts about the move did linger, they were resolved after his first Austin-based album, Tall Texas Tales netted Cheevers the 2011 Singer-Songwriter of the Year award from the Texas Music Academy. His newest album, On Earth As It Is In Austin, is another testament to the continuing creative growth he has experienced since leaving Nashville.
With On Earth As It Is In Austin, Cheevers delivers a generous 15-song helping full of his trademark tales of rebels and outlaws and dreamers and lovers, recorded as musical duets with 15 different celebrated musicians performing on one song each. Among the 14 Austin-based musicians contributing their talents are stalwarts Will Sexton, Walt Wilkins, Stephen Doster, Warren Hood, Dustin Welch and Van Wilks as well as longtime Nashville collaborator Charlie White.

Show info posted by the Host: Country / Americana Songwriter and Guitar Player Richard Dean ... more
Richard Dean is a singer/songwriter/instrumentalist with four solo albums to his credit. Born in Dallas, Texas, and educated in Austin, he has been a resident of Colorado for most of his adult life. He was raised on country and blues, and has a special affinity for both.
Of Richard Dean’s 1997 CD, “Changes in the Heart,” Swallow Hill Quarterly said, “’Changes in the Heart’ shows Dean at the peak of his formidable powers…a mature, thoughtful songwriter.”
His songs have been recorded and performed by Tom Rush, Emmylou Harris, Michael Murphey, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and others. Richard was half of the Colorado duo Timberline Rose in the 1970’s, and the guitarist in Michael M. Murphey’s band during his “Wildfire” heyday.
