Randy Owen Inducted Into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame
When you're a great...you're a great! And one of the greatest talents that has come out of country music is none other than the lead singer of super group Alabama, Randy Owen.
He's written some of Alabama's best songs!
Randy is being inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame along with three writers who, you know their songs, but probably never knew their names.
Randy wrote 'Mountain Music', 'Feels So Right', 'My Home's In Alabama', 'Pass It On Down' along with a host of others.
The other inductees include Will Jennings who wrote 'Please Remember Me' that was recorded by Tim McGraw. He also co-wrote the HUGE hit of 'My Heart Will Go On' from the movie Titanic with James Horner.
Jeffrey Steele co-wrote big hits such as 'Big Deal' by Leeann Rimes, 'What Hurts the Most' by Rascal Flatts, 'Unbelievable' by Diamond Rio, 'International Harvester' by Craig Morgan, 'Every Time I Hear Your Name' by Keith Anderson...and so many more! Many were recorded by Rascal Flatts and Montgomery Gentry.
Layng Martine, Jr. is probably MOST famous for the 1974 Billy 'Crash' Craddock hit 'Rub It In' which you have heard on the commercials for Glade Plug-Ins. But he also co-wrote Reba McEntire's 'The Greatest Man I Never Knew'.
Oh, to be even considered in the category with these fabulous writers would be a dream of mine.
Congratulations to all the inductees for 2013. The induction ceremony will take place on October 17 at the Music City Center in Nashville.
