James E. "Buzz" Cason (born November 27, 1939 in Nashville, Tennessee, United States) is an American rock singer, songwriter, record producer, and author.

He was a founding member of The Casuals, Nashville's first rock and roll band. Together with Richard Williams and Hugh Jarrett of The Jordanaires he recorded as The Statues for Liberty. In 1960, Cason started a solo career under the pseudonym Garry Miles, and had a number 16 hit in 1960 with "Look for a Star"

His biggest hit as a writer, with Mac Gayden, was the song "Everlasting Love". Recorded originally by American Robert Knight, the UK’s Love Affair cover version was a number one hit there in January 1968. His 1962 song, "Soldier of Love" - a co-write - was covered by The Beatles, Live at the BBC.

Cason was also a backing singer for Elvis Presley and Kenny Rogers. In 1970, he founded 'Creative Workshop', a recording studio, where Dolly Parton, Jerry Reed, Merle Haggard, The Judds, The Doobie Brothers, Emmylou Harris, and Olivia Newton-John recorded material. Since the mid-1980s he has his own rockabilly-styled group, 'B.C. & the Dartz' who released some albums. Cason is still writing and producing songs.

His book, Living the Rock'N'Roll Dream: The Adventures of Buzz Cason (2004), is about music, freedom, and adventure and sheds light on the events and careers that shaped the early days of rock and roll.
