Having played for the likes of the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, John Mayer and more, Chuck Leavell is known as one of the greatest rock ā€˜nā€™ roll pianists of the last four decades. What many fans don't know, however, is that Leavell is also one of the biggest names in environmental forestry, going so far as to be named National Outstanding Tree Farmer of the Year in 1999.

Dividing his talent between music, forests, and family, CHUCK LEAVELL: THE TREE MAN explores the world's fascination with one of the greatest keyboardists of the last 40 years, with appearances from President Jimmy Carter, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Chris Robinson , Dr. John, John Mayer, David Gilmore, and of course, Chuck Leavell himself.
