Rodney Clawson started making trips to Nashville from his hometown of Grover, Texas. He proudly inked his first publisher deal in 2000 and three years later saw his writer credit hit the Top 20 for the first time. Jason Aldean provided Clawson with his first No. 1 in 2006 for “Why.”
Award nominations and more hits started happening and in 2008 the fast track writer signed with Craig Wiseman’s Big Loud Shirt company. As evidenced by his No. 1 position on this week’s NEKST Top60 Country Songwriter chart, Clawson’s hard work ethic hasn’t wavered, and he’s added the title “producer” to his list of accomplishments.
Actually this week’s Top 10 made waves all over with Jaren Johnston, Chris Tompkins, Shane McAnally, Luke Laird and Cole Swindell all moving higher.
Congratulations to Josh Osborne who lands at No. 2 after enjoying two consecutive weeks @ No.1. Osborne has five active songs presently on the chart, which is the most of any writer this week.
