Belles and Gals calls Cheley’s music “incredible” while Think Country says, “if this artist hits your town, go. Just go!!!” She is a New Folk winner from the prestigious international Kerrville Folk Festival, following in the footsteps of previous winners Lucinda Williams and Lyle Lovett. In 2015, she was voted Nashville’s favorite LGBT musician by readers of Out & About. Maverick Magazine UK calls Cheley “one of the most powerful, soulful singers in the business” while Country Music People even went so far to say one of Cheley’s songs “reminded me of Jackson Browne at his best.” Mindy Smith, an Americana Music Association Best New Artist of the Year, is a longtime fan of Tackett’s and says,”She has been a standout artist to me since day one because of her honest love of music, her connection to her roots and deep desire to tell her truth.”
