We are putting together the Ultimate songwriter Coffee Table Book. For a writer to be included they must have sold 10 Million or more in sales and or have written a classic standard in any Genre!, Everyone you see on these pages qualifies. We are so Blessed to have the writers we have included and we have many more that we have appointments for over the next few months. These Pictures will change out from time to time and we never put them all up, We have to leave something for the book. LA and I also have video snid-bits on each writer on our youtube channel.

Paul Craft, an amazing songwriter who in 1977 was nominated twice for country song of the year at the Grammys! The songs were "Hank Williams You Wrote My LIfe" and Drop Kick Me Jesus". Paul spent a couple of hours with us graciuosly taking the time to go over some of the highlights of his wonderful career! Paul also told LA and I some backstage stories with the Eagles and Linda Ronstadt, both of whom cut his song along with the Osborn Brother and many more " Midnight Flyer". The man has had a Songwriters Hall of Fame career, it may be time we put him in there! We will have more in the book! stay tuned!

Jerry Chestnut and his wife Pat had us over to thier Brentwood TN, Home and we spent the afternoon with Jerry talking about all the hits he wrote for Elvis Presley, George Jones, Faron Young and so many more we'll have to wait for the book to name. We will have some video on Jerry that will be very impressive. '
This man's career is amazing and we can't wait to show you a little bit more as "It Goes a Little Somethin' LIke This" continues!
LA and I were invited to Pam's Home in Franklin TN to conduct our interview. Pam had made us tea and we sat down to discuss the direction of the interview and we were off and running.
Pam has a recording studio built into her home and that is the place she has written most of her hits, and that is where we started our photo shoot. Pam was kind enough to play some of her hits for us live with just her guitar and it sounded as if we were listening to a recorded version ( Click on Pam's PIcture to hear a sample) The stories of how these songs came to be in amazing and they will be included in the book "It Goes a Little Somethin' LIke This"
Dave had us over to his office on music row on a Thursday evening and after we made it through a hail storm we got down to his interview and photo-shoot. We got some classic stories as well as some classic shots that will work so well for the book!
Like other successful writers in Nashville Dave has a wonderful old house on "The Row" he has turned into an office space that shows his personality.
Dave sang some of his big hits for us like "Jukebox in My Mind", "Ships That Don't Come In", "Queen of Memphis" and one of the hits he had with his great group "Gibson Miller Band" called "Texas Tattoo". Thank you for the hospitality Dave!
