"And if he thinks you are one of country music's enemies — the yes men, carpetbaggers and ass-kissers; the tramplers of tradition and the empty hats with accessorized accents; the hacks who grind Hank Williams under their SUV treads chasing the trend of the moment — he will cut you with it." "Singer-songwriter Chris Gantry remains a living link to Music City’s ragged and rowdy bohemian heyday."  {1} Nashville Outlaw By SKIP ANDERSON January 09, 2014 NEWS » COVER STORY "Good Morning Folks Happy CMA WEEK Everyone!!! This morning <<<GIVE ME A BREAK RADIO >>> OUR GUEST "CHRIS GANTRY" ("Let the Song Write You") "THESE WERE THE GYPSIES I LIVED AND RAN WITH BACK THEN..JOHN SHERMAN, FRED QUAN, RICK BROWN,A COUPLE OTHERS AND ME.WE WERE THE PROTOTYPES THAT SPEARHEADED WHAT WOULD ONE DAY BE DUBBED, THE OUTLAW MOVEMENT..KRIS, EDDIE RABBIT, JOHN HARTFORD, SHEL SILVERSTEIN,BUCKY WILKIN, WERE A COUPLE YEARS AWAY FROM COMING ON THE SCENE, BUT WHEN THEY ARRIVED, THEM PLUS MYSELF WOULD NOT ONLY CHANGE NASHVILLE'S MUSIC SCENE, BUT WOULD ULTIMATELY IMPACT THE MUSIC IN AMERICA."" Bobby Pizazz  "If he sometimes sounds like an ornery gunslinger itching to draw, he's entitled. Chris Gantry is an O.G. Nashville troublemaker, an outlaw before the term was adopted as a marketing handle. He's a singer-songwriter by trade, a beat poet and raconteur at heart, and a playwright much of the rest of the time. He is as nostalgic as the rest of us for days gone by — specifically the days 50 years ago when he rolled up on a Music City entering an era of bohemian craziness, groundbreaking songcraft and unparalleled creative freedom." {1} [caption id="attachment_2990" align="alignleft" width="300"]Toot-sie http://venturegalleries.com/blog/the-sad-songs-of-tootsies-orchid-lounge/[/caption] "Tootsie's Orchid Lounge {~ TOOT - Sie's Proper Pronunciation!} back room was different back then," Chris Gantry says. "There was no bar. If you were a serious songwriter, this was the Garden of Eden." {1} Nashville Outlaw By SKIP ANDERSON January 09, 2014 NEWS » COVER STORY "Sometimes we have to fight for our freedom," Gantry writes in his 2013 book Gypsy Dreamers in the Alley, a 270-page compilation of his anecdote-studded, stream-of-consciousness Facebook posts and thoughts on songwriting. Gypsy Dreamers in the Alley: Chris Gantry's Unique insights into the mystical art of the song Paperback Gypsy Dreamers in the Alley: Chris Gantry's Unique insights into the mystical art of the song Paperback "It was in these years — and in these kinds of watering holes — that the seeds of the Outlaw movement were sown, a decade before Waylon and Willie and the boys carried Outlaw Country to the top of the charts. Dylan recording in Nashville only challenged the likes of Kristofferson, Gantry, Silverstein and many others to push the bounds of orderly Music Row songcraft, allowing a new frankness (along with hints of psychedelia and personal mythology) into their lyrics. They pushed aside the embroidered stage suits and coiffed pompadours in favor of shaggy hair, open collars and tight jeans. This new generation came of age in the shadows of the day's Opry stars, figures like David "Stringbean" Akeman, Roy Acuff, Webb Pierce, Flatt and Scruggs, George Jones, Chet Atkins and Lefty Frizzell. They spent their Friday and Saturday nights in Tootsie's back room and in the alley between the now-famous honky-tonk and the legendary Ryman. They used the locales as informal staging areas before, during and after their appearances at WSM's twice-weekly Grand Ole Opry broadcast." [gallery size="medium" columns="4" ids="3011,3010,3008,3007,3006,3005,3004"] Gantry describes songwriting as a "divine experience" in the introduction of Gypsy Dreamers in the Alley. Kristofferson and Dolly Parton each wrote introductory remarks for the book, which is part how-to guide to songwriting, part fist-shaking rant against the state of country music, and part salute to yesteryear, when he and scores of other up-and-comers such as Billy Joe Shaver, Loretta Lynn and Merle Haggard redefined how songwriters and performers plied their trades. "I had an epiphany at a very young age," Gantry writes, "that songwriting is a Godly gift, and if rightly viewed as something He did instead of something I did, the two of us could form a co-writing partnership as long as I let Him be the captain of the ship and I the first mate."
