Chuck Schaeffer doesn't believe in cookie-cutter almost-country music. His new CD 'Along These Lines', the follow-up to his 'Living History' album, is a testament to this singer-songwriter's ability to craft a song that is like a breath of fresh air and deliver each song in his own style. He wrote, or co-wrote, seven of the twelve tracks on the CD; which also includes songs written by award winning songwriters Craig Bickhardt, Jim Femino, Liz Miller, Bill DiLuigi and Jim Carolan.
The album was on the US Roots Country Radio Charts Top 50 for 10 weeks (peaked at #37 RMR) and was #2 on the PA Roots Radio Charts for 8 weeks (RMR) .
He has opened for or shared the stage with David Allan Coe, Ralph Stanley and His Clinch Mountain Boys, Sonny Landreth, Larry Siegel, Craig Bickhardt, Suzie Brown, Brittany Ann, Jim Bianco, Natalie Acciani, Coyote Run and Lisa Bouchelle.
He has been featured in the Bucks County Courier Times, centraljersey.com, Trentonian.com, WFMZ-TV 69, The Folk Project's "Horses Sing None of It", Princeton NJ TV-30, The "Pickin Porch Show" at the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, and numerous radio outlets. He performed at the 2008 / 2009 Phillies World Series Rallies (D&Bs).
2012 has brought several notable accomplishments: his recordings were selected for compilation cds of two conferences ("Big Ole Buick" / Millennium Music Conference; "Strangers Again" / Singer Songwriter Cape May); "Big Ole Buick" was chosen as the opening theme for "Under the Hood", WBCB-AM / Levittown PA; and he was nominated for best Bluegrass / Country performer, Jersey Acoustic Music Awards.
