Brent is a hit songwriter with cuts by Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, Lady Antebellum, Joe Nichols, Gord Bamford, Ray Stevens, and more. He’s written a top 5 hit in the US and a #1 in Canada… so far.
I think of getting a song cut as a chain- I’m on one end and the cut is on the other. Each link in the chain is someone who has to say “yes” to the song and pass it up the chain to the next link. However, each link is also a person who might say “no” and break the chain. The longer the chain, the greater the chance somebody will say “no.”
Therefore, it’s worth taking time to build the relationships which make the chain shorter. This is one of the reasons it’s valuable to write with the artist- it really shortens the chain.
