We’re pulling back the curtain and giving the original songwriters the stage to perform the famous songs they’ve written. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience of hit music, stories, and conversation with Nashville’s songwriters, Lee Thomas Miller and Wendell Mobley.

Lee Thomas Miller

Lee has charted 15 years worth of singles including seven #1 hits! These songs have been played on the radio more than 10 million times. He is currently in the Top 20 with Tim McGraw’s “Thought About You”. Lee is a three-time Grammy award nominee and has won other major industry awards including Song of the Year at the Country Music Association Awards (in Nashville) and Academy of Country Music Awards (in Las Vegas) as well as at the Music Row Magazine and Nashville Songwriter’s Association International annual awards. He has also won multiple “Songs I Wish I’d Written” awards as voted on and given by the Nashville Songwriter’s Association as well as 11 BMI awards. Lee has had success also as a record producer, including a pair of top 20 hits for recording artist Steve Holy including his 2006 #1 record “Brand New Girlfriend”.

Lee also served as President of the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International (NSAI) for 5 years. He spent the last 15 years traveling to Washington D.C. representing and lobbying for the rights of the American songwriter. He has testified before both houses of the U.S. congress as well as countless meetings with Congressmen, Senators, White house cabinet members from multiple administrations, Dept. of Justice officials, and countless bureaucrats reaching from the U.S. Chamber of Congress to the Register of Copyright. Ultimately this led to the passing of the federal Music Modernization Act in the fall of 2018 of which he was present in the West Wing for the President’s signing.

Wendell Mobley

There’s a good chance you’ve heard Wendell’s songs, but if you’ve not heard him sing and play them, you should! Here are a few … Randy Houser (ASCAP Song Of The Year “How Country Feels”), Rascal Flatts (“Take Me There”, “Fast Cars and Freedom”, “I Melt”, “Banjo”, “Changed”), Kenny Chesney (ACM nominated Song Of the Year “There Goes My Life”, ASCAP Song Of the Year “How Forever Feels”), Jason Aldean (“Tattoos On This Town”), Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, Lee Brice, Dustin Lynch, Brantley Gilbert, Joe Nichols, Rodney Atkins, Alabama, and Carrie Underwood! He also wrote and sang all those ridiculous Napa Know How commercials. His latest single “A Little More Summertime” recorded by Jason Aldean is his latest number one hit.
