Awards

YouDay
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 got some exciting news last week when the nominees were announced for the 2014 Canadian Country Music Awards (CCMAs). Gord Bamford, Byron Hill and I are nominated for Songwriters of the Year for our song, “When Your Lips Are So Close.” The song is also nominated for Single of the Year. (It went #1 with Gord as the artist.) By the way, if you happen to be a CCMA member, we’d appreciate your vote!

What award would you love to win? As a writer and/or artist, which award would you take if you could only have one? And, honestly, if you couldn’t care less about awards or if your dream reward has nothing to do with the music business I’m cool with that. I hope you’ll put whatever your answer is in the comments.

I’ll go first, and I’ll keep it to music.

In 2005, “Monday Morning Church” won a “Song I Wish I’d Written” Award from NSAI. There were only 13 given that year, and the other winning songs included “Bless The Broken Road,” by Rascal Flatts, “I May Hate Myself In The Morning” by Lee Ann Womack, “Hey Good Lookin’” by Jimmy Buffett and Friends, and “Memories Of Us” by Keith Urban.

To have one of my songs sitting along side songs written by Hank Williams and Rodney Crowell was simply amazing. What made it even more special was that the award was voted on by only pro songwriters. When I dream about success, it usually involves that award.

But enough about me. What about YOU?

God Bless,

Brent

  1. Inspirational Song of the Year…. and when an artist is looking for a song a little deeper lyrically than bikini tops, tailgates, cornrows, and …. a beer, that I could be a songwriter they would call on. Being known for that would mean as much to me as receiving an award.

  2. Since “World’s Greatest Dad” isn’t exactly music related… I think I’d rather something like MusiCares Person of the Year, or similar. I’d love to be known more for what I did with my gift from a “be a blessing” standpoint than any technical or creative achievement.

  3. For me the highest honor will be to work with my heroes. Therefore, I would love to have cuts by heroes like Jean Shepard, Billy Dean or Kathy Mattea. 🙂 That is the greatest ‘award’ I could ever win!
