ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Byron Hill is from Winston-Salem, NC. Byron moved to Nashville in April of 1978 and signed his first songwriting contract with ATV Music Group in September of 1978, where the hits started happening for Byron as a writer in 1979 with Joe Sun's "Out Of Your Mind", and in 1981 with Johnny Lee's "Pickin' Up Strangers", with many other cuts and several smaller singles along the way. Byron co-wrote George Strait's first number one "Fool Hearted Memory" in 1982, and many other early cuts including recordings by artists such as Ray Charles, Juice Newton, Conway Twitty, Mel McDaniel, Ricky Skaggs, Margo Smith, and Reba McEntire. In 1984, after the sale and closing of ATV Music, Byron began four years as an independent songwriter/publisher, writing the Ed Bruce #4 single "Nights", as well as songs recorded by Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray, George Jones, Tom Wopat, and others. Since 1988 his songs have been published by Sony/ATV Music, Warner Chappell Music, and Universal Music Publishing. His hits continued with Alabama's #1 single "Born Country", "Alright Already" by Larry Stewart, "Lifestyles Of The Not So Rich And Famous" by Tracy Byrd, "If I Was A Drinkin' Man" by Neal McCoy, "High-Tech Redneck" by George Jones, "Politics, Religion And Her" by Sammy Kershaw, "Nothing On But The Radio" by Gary Allan, "Size Matters" by Joe Nichols, and other singles.

Byron's songs have generated more than 559 recordings, earning seventy-seven RIAA certified gold and platinum awards, ten ASCAP awards, twenty-two U.S. and Canadian top-ten chart hits including seven number ones. He has new songs on current and upcoming albums by Rhonda Vincent, Porter Wagoner, The Road Hammers, Gord Bamford and others. His work as a producer includes three albums for Gary Allan on Decca Records, an album for Gil Grand on Monument Records, an album for Kathy Mattea on Mercury Records, a long-time producer/co-writer association with singer/songwriter Mike Dekle which includes four albums, and he has produced several other international and independent artists along the way, past and present.

Byron performs as a singer/songwriter in Nashville and around the southeast. Byron's own albums are available online at www.cdbaby.com, and at Byron's website at www.byronhillmusic.com.

Byron says about this album.... "a few artists might be interested in these songs, but I chose to record songs that I like, songs I like to sing, songs of a personal nature that reveal a lot about who I am, how I think, the way I was raised...thoughts that humor my own heart and soul."

Every song, beautiful and passionate, straight from the heart and soul.
These songs are real, true, and apply to everybody in some way. Every song has it's own special message.
