Surviving the Music Industry


Apr 14, 2020

Songwriter Brett James admits that after writing over 3,500 songs, it's hard to write an idea that hasn't been said before. When you have cuts though from Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Bon Jovi, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Kelly Clarkson, Meghan Trainor, and Nick Jonas. It's safe to say that he's not going back to med-school anytime soon. Just turning 50, Brett realized he had something different to say, but straight from him rather than somebody else. He released I Am Now after 20 years since his last original recordings. We take a look at his most recent EP release but also the complications of his early record deals in the '90s. The panic attack that led to his decision to quit music and then some of the major characters in his life that led him to be an award-winning, highly regarded songwriter in the song community.
