Who was/is Cheley Tackett ? - CDs, Vinyl LPs, DVD and more
It only takes hearing Cheley Tackett once to understand why she is one of Nashville's most celebrated emerging artists. Cheley's blend of lyrical intensity and melodic craftsmanship have earned her recognition and respect in a town where being a stand-out is a rare achievement.
American Country Magazine suggests Cheley's song "Play the One I Like" "...might be the best song that I've heard this year so far" while Roughstock.com describes her as "...a remarkable vocalist....Imagine Allison Moorer's blissfully soulful voice and you've got yourself a good comparison for Cheley."
Maverick, the UK's leading independent country music magazine has this to say about Cheley: "One of the most powerful, soulful singers in the business, she writes with the deep confidence and total abandon that only a true artist is capable of. She draws her listeners in with comfortable ease and offers each and every one an original and deep personal experience."
Acclaimed as much for her songwriting as for her artistry, Cheley has won Merlefest's Chris Austin Songwriting contest, the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival's New Folk competition, Just Plain Folks' Song of the Year, Country Album of the Year, & Country Song of the Year, as well as being a finalist in the Independent Acoustic Music Awards' Country Song & Female Vocal Peformance categories, and a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition's Rock category.
