“IT ALL STARTS WITH A SONG … As part 2 of my internet radio interview with Bobby Pizazz approaches today, I’m thinking about songs I wrote that have had major impact on my life’s direction. Two of them come to mind, “The Man With The Leather Guitar” which eventually led me to move to Nashville, and “Buzz & Pee Wee, Butchie & Me” , which led me to start writing short stories and books.” Ken Spooner April 30, 2015
Ken Spooner Singer/songwriter producer and Author and a Master musician/songwriter/Artist. One song you may know right away… “If the Devil Danced (In Empty Pockets)” (written with Ken Spooner & Kim Williams) “At the start of his audio autobiography, If the Devil Danced in Empty Pockets, songwriter-guitarist Ken Spooner says he originally considered writing a book about instrumentalists and the important role they play in popular music. As he began logging his stories, however, he found himself heading in a different direction. The resulting cassette-only book, named after a No. 1 country hit that Spooner co-wrote for singer Joe Diffie, is part memoir, part music-industry commentary, and part behind-the-scenes curtain-lifter. It’s filled with the kinds of stories usually passed between musicians in backstage dressing rooms, or by songwriters over tumblers of sour mash.” from “INNER VIEW” By Michael McCall Nashville Scene Sept 24, 1998.
