Surviving the Music Industry

Nov 20, 2018

The last fresh episode of 2018 is hit country music songwriter, Jonathan Singleton.  He is known for co-writing the songs "Don't" by Billy Currington, "Watching Airplanes" by Gary Allan, "A Guy Walks Into a Bar" by Tyler Farr, "Red Light" and "Let It Rain" by David Nail, "Why Don't We Just Dance" by Josh Turner and "Diamond Rings and Old Barstools" by Tim McGraw. In 2009, the American Society of Composers, Publishers and Authors (ASCAP) awarded Singleton for "Don't," which was one of the most-played country music songs of that year.

Jonathan not only talks about what led him to be an artist/songwriter, but also the trouble of being a songwriter. We discuss the politics and the next steps to just even get your song noticed. He also shares the stories of what happened in the writing room when writing some of his biggest hits.
