Three-time Grammy nominee Lee Thomas Miller has won the ACM and CMA Song of the Year in 2009 for his hit “In Color” by Jamey Johnson, and has written hit songs for numerous artists including Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks, Rascal Flatts, Randy Travis, Craig Morgan and many others. His seven #1s include: “The Impossible” (Joe Nichols), “I Just Wanna Be Mad” (Terri Clark), “The World”, “I’m Still A Guy”, and “Perfect Storm” (Brad Paisley), “Southern Girl” (Tim McGraw) and “You’re Gonna Miss This” (Trace Adkins). He was named Music Row Magazine's Breakout Songwriter of the Year in 2003. Lee currently serves as President of the Nashville Songwriter’s Association International (NSAI).

Wynn Varble has written dozens of hit songs, including three # 1s: “Have You Forgotten” (Darryl Worley), “Waitin’ On A Woman” (Brad Paisley) and “I’m A Little More Country Than That” (Easton Corbin). All three were nominated for Song of the Year by either CMA or ACM and sometimes both. Wynn received Nashville Songwriters Association’s Songwriter of the Year Award in 2009. Wynn has three songs on the Garth Brooks CD “Man Against Machine”, including the hit single “Mom”. He made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2011 and has appeared on reality shows and currently has a weekly spot on the Joey and Rory Show on RFD TV. His latest CD “Freak Show” has just been released. It is available on ITunes, Amazon, and CD Baby.

James Otto is one of the most distinct vocalists in Country music and is a 2-time Grammy nominated singer/songwriter - one for his vocal performance on his breakthrough hit song “Just Got Started Lovin’ You” which was the biggest hit in all of country music in 2008. The second nomination was for co-writing Jamey Johnson’s “In Color” which also won both CMA and ACM Song of the Year. Otto has written songs for many different artists including Darrius Rucker, Trace Adkins, Alabama, the Zac Brown Band (“No Hurry”) and Chris Janson ("Holdin’ Her"). James is a founding member of the infamous Music Mafia that includes artists Big & Rich and Gretchen Wilson.

Mac Davis has established himself as an all-around entertainer: songwriter, singer, film and stage actor, T.V. and radio personality, performer and legend. He has enjoyed success in almost every facet of show business, starting in the late sixties all the way to the present. Mac wrote several hits for Elvis Presley, including “In the Ghetto”, “Memories”, “Don’t Cry Daddy” and “A Little Less Conversation.” Nominated three times for a Grammy Award, Mac has written hits for Kenny Rogers (“Somethin’s Burnin’”), Bobby Goldsboro (“Watchin’ Scotty Grow”) and Gallery (“I Believe in Music”), just to name a few. Hit songs that he recorded himself include, “Baby Don’t Get Hooked on Me”, “Stop and Smell the Roses”, “One Hell of a Woman”, “Hooked on Music”, “My Bestest Friend”, “It’s Hard to be Humble” and “Texas in My Rearview Mirror”. His successful television series “The Mac Davis Show” on NBC and many TV specials over the years enabled him to be selected as the Academy of Country Music’s Entertainer of the Year, and The People’s Choice Awards’ very first Favorite Male Singer.

Mac has received notable awards and accolades such as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, being inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, Nashville’s Songwriters Hall of Fame, the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association, the National Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in New York, the Alabama Music Hall Of Fame’s first ever Jerry Wexler Award and most recently 2015 BMI Icon Award.
