Our new chart marks a 3-wk consecutive run at the top for Shane McAnally whose company, Smacksongs, is moving into new 16th Ave digs this month. Congrats!
Moving up from No. 5 => 2 this week is Nicolle Galyon with four active titles. This talented writer is another perfect example of a hard working “overnight success.” And if you are reading this you probably know that in industry-speak, “overnight success” actually means like maybe 10 years of hard work!!!
Galyon, a Belmont grad from Sterling Kansas, signed a writer deal with Warner Chappell in 2006 after finishing school. She became a contestant on The Voice in 2011 where she met Rae Lynn and Miranda Lambert. Both relationships grew into fruitful partnerships. Galyon co-wrote “Automatic” with Lambert and Natalie Hemby and it became the 2015 ACM Song of the Year and the 2014 CMA Single of the Year. She also co-wrote and co-produced music for Rae Lynn. Galyon married songwriter Rodney Clawson in 2007.
