PATRICK DAVIS writes and performs songs worthy of your attention. And though he’s a newcomer to many in the country world, some of his songs are already contemporary country veterans. He co-wrote Jason Michael Carroll’s Top 10 hit, “Where I’m From,” as well as the closing track, “Be Wary of a Woman,” on Darius Rucker’s platinum-level Learn To Live album. In 2011, his songs are being heard on new albums from Lady Antebellum, Jewel (Patrick and Jewel co-wrote 11 of the 12 original songs on the album, and Davis even sang harmony on the closing track, “Count On Me”), Josh Kelley and Carroll (he produced Carroll’s latest release). Since moving to Nashville in 2002, he’s written with a wide range of collaborators, from contemporary voices Jewel and Dallas Davidson to formative influences such as Radney Foster, Hal Ketchum and Nashville Songwriters Hall of Famer Guy Clark (Davis co-wrote two songs on Clark’s latest studio album, and considers that a career highlight.). His first four years in Nashville, he wound up co-writing four songs for Green’s Cannonball album, including the Top 20 hit “Dixie Lullaby.”
In October of 2010, CHANNING WILSON was approached by EMI Music Publishing after playing a Tuesday night showcase called Alabama Line. After meeting with EMI a few times he was offered his first publishing deal. It didn’t take long before he was in the room with his teacher. Learning from the master himself. Channing got his first cut with a song titled, “Living With The Blues,” with Sony recording artist, Tyler Farr. He has been writing with some of Nashville’s best writers such as Guy Clark, Ashley Monroe, Drake White, Dave Kennedy and more. He has shared bills with so many of his heroes such as Billy Joe Shaver, Steve Earle, Robert Earl Keen, Tony Joe White, Chris Knight, Dale Watson, and many more including getting invited to be on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour .
