Tony is co-owner of CAST ENGINEERING(boutique design and manufacturing company for classic analog guitar effects pedals!), and the CAST crew recently spent the night hanging with Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band! The guitar players in the band are hit songwriter/session pro Jim “Moose” Brown and first-call Nashville session player Rob McNelley……they both loved and ordered TEXAS FLOOD Overdrive pedals for their rigs!! Also, world renowned guitar tech to Bob Seger and Bruce Springsteen, Jo Lopez, ordered one for himself AND one for Springsteen’s rig!! How COOL!!
The new single “THIS GOODBYE” has been released to all online retailers!! It’s a song written and performed by Tony and recorded at Dreamlab Productions. It was engineered and mixed by Chris Riggs and mastered by the legendary Tom Coyne[look up THAT guys artist roster]!!
All proceeds from downloads will go directly to Compassion International, so enjoy the music AND the knowledge you are making a difference in the life of a child in need.

So I’ve started a company with my partner and engineering genius Steve Evans! It’s CAST Engineering, and we design and manufacture handcrafted-in-the-USA boutique guitar effects pedals!! Our stuff is built of the best components possible, and is comprised of well-loved classic mostly analog circuits that we tweak to bring to the modern marketplace. Come check us out at:
and spread the word!!
So…..GEORGIA COUNTRY AWARDS Update:
I have made a personal decision to step down from my nomination as “Male Artist Of The Year”, and there is a couple of reasons why(and have already instructed the GCAwards as such).
Number one, I have made a decision to cease booking any further live performance dates for the foreseeable future. I have come to realize that my gifts would be best served as a sacrifice to the Lord, and so…..when the time is right and the Father leads me into opportunity, I will make music intended to worship and praise Him.
Number two, I have begun a new journey as partner in a new company that is preparing for launch(!), and it is eating up the lion’s share of my time and energies.
Number three, I want to be sure the award for Georgia Country “Male Artist Of The Year” goes to someone who will appreciate the doors it will open. Frankly, for me at this point in life, the only door I am concerned with is the gate to Heaven.
I’d like to thank everybody for your support in this, in me as an artist over the last several years, and in my family. Ya’ll humble me, and make my life richer. I will continue to make music(and perhaps sneak in a private party event here and there!), but in the way I was intended to make it…….remember – this is not the end, but a new beginning.
Peace and love,
