Live This Life
Dave Caley started his career as a musician performing in a Bluegrass band and has performed with many famous Country music stars including Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Brad Paisley, Johnny Paycheck, and Tammy Wynette. He was inducted as a member of the Michigan Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Dave sings a variety of music styles including Traditional Country, New Country, Bluegrass, and Country Gospel. Ken Mann, Host of 'Ken's Country Radio Show' says that 'When you listen to the words of his songs and the sound of his voice, it is clear that Dave Caley is a true Country singer who wants to touch his audience and is not satisfied until he has given them his best.' LIVE THIS LIFE, Dave's tenth project is a fourteen song CD that he considers to be one of the most exciting musical journeys of his career. The CD begins with the title track and his first single release from the album. The song is both Country and Inspirational, as are several songs on the album, and crossed over from Country into Christian Country where it went to No. 1 and was also a chart topping Country Western song in Power Source Magazine. The song sets the theme of the album in how to 'live this life.' The second song, 'Chosen One,' really brings out Dave's talent and takes you on a roller coaster ride 'Down, deep down, below the Mason-Dixon Line,' with upbeat music and lyrics and fabulous lead vocals and backup singers. Dave slows things down a bit with 'Look Who's Back From Town,' a Country ballad, and 'Won't Stop,' a Bob Seger song with a Country Blues sound. The album is filled with upbeat songs that are true toe-tapping and fun to listen to like 'Redneck Love Gone Bad' and 'Sing Me Home.' In contrast, the album has some very passionate and thought-provoking songs, like 'Hard To Be Honest,' 'Sunset Boulevard,' 'Nothing To Die For,' and 'The River.' Love songs abound like 'You Were Mine', 'The Wrong Man,' and 'Kristofferson.' The album ends with 'Jesus Was A Fisherman,' a peppy Christian Country song written by Robert Frank Smith, President of Renewed Records, Dave's new label. Dave extends his heart-felt thanks to Rebecca Linda Smith, Dave's label-mate at Renewed Records, and to Gene Higgins, President and Founder of HMG Nashville, for producing such an outstanding action-packed album with a tremendous lineup of hit songs with well-known Country Music writers.
