Leavell Rehearsal Room at Capricorn

This campaign ended on June 28, 2019, but you can still make a gift to Mercer University by clicking here!

Rose Lane White started working at Capricorn Records in 1969 as Frank Fenter’s assistant. Not long after, she captured the heart of Chuck Leavell, a talented keyboard and piano player from Alabama who was new to the Capricorn label. Chuck and Roselane were married June 26, 1973. Early in his career Chuck played with Sun Down, Alex Taylor, Dr. John and Gregg Allman’s 1st album, “Laid Back” which led to him joining the Allman Brothers Band. Since 1982, Chuck has been the primary touring keyboardist for the Rolling Stones and also serves as their music director. 

Over his long and varied career, Chuck has played as a session musician alongside Eric Clapton, George Harrison, David Gilmore, Train, the Black Crowes, John Mayer and so many more but he always stays humble. Chuck and Rose Lane remain true to their love for home, still residing in Twiggs County, Georgia. For over 40 years they have dearly loved each other, their family, their community and God’s land. They are a rarity in the music business!

 Please consider making a gift in honor of Chuck and Rose Lane Leavell to name a rehearsal room at the newly renovated Capricorn Studios. We believe the restoration of Capricorn can help advance a music scene in the place where music legends like Little Richard, Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers Band, and Chuck Leavell once walked.
