Meet Craig Wiseman: The Songsmith Behind your Favorite Country Hits

0  comments

Tim Mc Graw, Brooks & Dunn, and Kenney Chesney are among the biggest country stars whose hit songs were supplied by genius song-writer Craig Wiseman.

He has been among the most celebrated songwriters of the1990s and 2000s. With his crafts topping Country’s Bill-Board Charts like Tracy Lawrence’s “If The Good Die Young” (1994), “She’s Got It All” (1997) by Kenny Chesney, “Where the Green Grass Grows” (1998) by Tim McGraw, “Believe” (2005) by BROOKS & DUNN’s, “Something’s Gotta Give” (2005) by LeAnn Rhimes, and many other famous records, Wiseman was dubbed by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers) as Country Songwriter of the Year in 2003, 2005, and 2007. Not surprisingly, NSAI (Nashville Songwriters Association International) named him as ‘Songwriter of the Decade’ for 2000-2009 for “playing a significant role in shaping country music.”

So where did all his inspiration come from? Prior to his first song-writing break in 1989 for Roy Orbinson’s ” The Only One”, music gave him comfort when at a tender age of eMeet Craig Wiseman: The Songsmith Behind your Favorite Country Hits 1leven, his father died in a plane tragedy. From there, he started to pen songs based on his real-life experiences and memories. One could say then that for every successful song he writes, it’s more of a reflection of  the composer’s mood than the singers who popularized them. Admirable though, because fame and wealth did not interfere with his fundamentals nor did he allow them to distract his creative writing process.

Currently, he remains in the songwriting and publishing business despite the multiple successes of more than 100 singles, 20 No. 1s, and 80 million record. He actually has his own music publishing company called “Big Loud Shirt”. Launched in 2003 and based in Nashville, his company remains to be an authority in country music; garnering awards and consistently making world records.

So, any aspiring country singer there? You won’t go wrong working with O’le Mississippi’s pride, Mr. Wiseman.
