This Week Sept 21, 10 on Live n Kickin..
Chapman Zane (Chapman Jones in RL) brings the classic sound of simple acoustic arrangements to your musical table. If you ask him what he sounds like he’ll tell you straight up, “well, I don’t sound like AC/DC.” And then give a smile. Chap’s been playing acoustic guitar for several decades. He loves his guitars with a passion and names them all. His favorite is Ruby, an old Guild D25 the love of his life gave him. You’ll hear Ruby on most every cut he does.
Chap lives in the Southern Bluegrass region of Kentucky out on the Cumberland Plateau. As he likes to say, “dead East of the Great Plains and dead South of the Great Lakes.” Along with his wife, the ever so lovely Catherine Faye, Petey, who is an Australian Shepherd Chap call’s “Sparky The Barky Dog”, several cats, a boatload of wildlife and a forest of beautiful pine trees, Chap enjoys life on the farm and writing his tunes.
