Available Now Chuck's new book is now available! GROWING A BETTER AMERICA: Smart, Strong and Sustainable is hot off the presses. Chuck and his co-writer, J. Marshall Craig have spent the better part of the last two years working on this important read. The theme here is "smart growth", and how we can deal with the pressures of America's growth pains that are already causing us concern. With a current population of some 310 million in the US and expected to reach 400 million by the year 2040, NOW is the time for us to think long and hard about how we are going to handle our growth going forward. Chuck has identified and exposed some great growth models in this book, and goes into subjects such as transportation, energy issues, home building and renovation, community design and much, much more. One chapter is dedicated to musicians, actors and other artists that are making a positive difference for our environment. An informative and fun read, it is sure to capture the attention of our country, and you can expect to see Chuck on various media outlets discussing the book in the coming months.

Available Now Chuck's new CD "Live In Germany" was recorded in Germany in the fall of 2007 on the Green Leaves & Blue Notes Tour! As the two-year long Rolling Stones' "A Bigger Bang" tour came to an end in late summer of 2007, Leavell remained in Europe for the "Green Leaves & Blue Notes Tour," where he recruited some of Germany's top musicians to accompany him. In a live performance recorded on September 14, 2007, for the German radio station HR1, Leavell and his international crew, which included drummer Paul Hochstadter, bassist Christian Diener, saxophonist Lutz Hafner, guitarist Frank Kuruc, recorded 19 songs in an hour and a half set. In addition to performing a handful of Leavell's original tunes, the group performed covers of such classic songs as The Allman Brothers' "Jessica" and "Statesboro Blues" (with a cameo appearance by Henning Eichler on harmonica); The Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman" and "Rip this Joint;" a rousing rendition of Les McCann and Eddie Harris' "Compared to What;" moving renditions of Ray Charles' "Georgia" and George Harrison's "Here Comes the Sun;" and a few standards including "In the Wee Wee Hours" and "Route 66."

Available Now Chuck's new children's book, "The Tree Farmer." A grandfather who owns a tree farm takes his grandson on a magical journey through the forest, where trees become musical instruments, books, a baby's crib and more. The story explains the vital role that trees play in our lives, providing us with the wood for our homes, furniture and other products--and mankind's responsibility to protect and care for them. Co-authored by Chuck Leavell, musician, tree farmer, conservationist and longtime keyboardist for the Rolling Stones.

Available Now Chuck's new solo CD, "Southscape." As the keyboardist for the Rolling Stones, Chuck Leavell rock n rolls with the best of them. However, on his latest solo CD, he chooses to find a more jazzy and homey side to his playing. He has tapped two of his favorite saxophinists, Tim Ries who plays with Chuck in the Rolling Stones band, and one of Chuck’s former band mates, Randall Bramblett of Sea Level, to help him formulate an album of new southern anthems. Rounding out the Band mates are Michael Rhodes on Bass and Chad Cromwell on drums with highlights by Larry Carlton on guitar. This CD will be a classic fo Years to come.
