Cary was born on September 10th of 1960 in O’Donnell, Texas. He has recorded his three albums Human Masquerade, Martha and Big Shots between 1997 and 2005. After the release of his second album, entitled: Martha, Cary was named Songwriter of the Year by Freeform American Roots in 2000. Later that same year, Martha made it to #6 on the Freeform American Roots Radio Chart. His third release, entitled: Big Shots went to #1 in Europe on the EuroAmericana Chart in 2005. That same album, Big Shots, went to # 10 on Satellite Radio in 2005. Swinney’s music has been described as “biting”, “quirky”, “honest”, “gripping” and even “political” by DJs and writers from Texas to Europe to Australia and points in between. Swinney now splits time between New Mexico and Texas. Interestingly, he spends much of his time in a cabin at 8000 feet - which has no electricity, no running water, and no neighbors (a designated wilderness area).
