In 2009, this native of Florence, South Carolina, co-wrote the Most Played Song on Country radio stations across the United States. A tremendous achievement for any songwriter, the song, “She’s Country” (recorded and released by Platinum-selling country superstar Jason Aldean), held the #1 position on the chart for two consecutive weeks, reached two million plays, and out sold every genres ringtones.
In 2010, Tatum’s song, “Loud” was selected as the Official Theme Song for ACC Football’s 2010 Season. This fast-paced anthem celebrated the excitement and energy of ACC Football, captured in a raucous music video that was seen in all ACC Markets, resulting in exposure for Bridgette totaling over 27 million households.
Wynn came to love country music at a very young age when he discovered his father’s collection of classic country vinyl records. He even traded his big brother’s “Grand Funk Railroad” for a copy of Jimmy Dean’s “Big Bad John”, and still has a scar to prove it! Around the age of 14, a neighbor showed Wynn a few chords on an old guitar. Before long, Wynn was playing on his own and writing his own songs.
After years of performing in honkytonks & bars, Wynn decided to make the move to Nashville. His first radio single was “Fit To Be Tied Down” by Sammy Kershaw. Since then Wynn has had many hits including three number ones…all three were nominated for “Song Of The Year” by the CMA or ACM and sometimes both. Wynn’s three number one songs are “Have You Forgotten” by Darryl Worley, “Waitin’ On A Woman” by Brad Paisley, and “I’m A Little More Country Than That” by Easton Corbin. In addition to his number ones, Wynn has had songs recorded by artists such as Garth Brooks, Cody Johnson, Jon Pardi, Trace Adkins, Mark Chesnutt, Willie Nelson, Kellie Pickler, Lee Ann Womack, and many others.
In 2009, Wynn received the Nashville Songwriters Association’s Songwriter of the Year Award. He made his Grand Ole Opry Debut in 2011. Additionally, Wynn has appeared on several tv shows and was featured weekly on the Joey & Rory Show for several years. Wynn writes songs nearly every day and tours extensively. He is currently signed with BMG Music Publishing.
Jason Matthews has always been a writer. From the time he was old enough to hold a pen, he’s been scribbling his thoughts and feelings into spiral bound notebooks. At fifteen, he saw Eric Clapton on television and became obsessed with playing guitar. So after learning how to play three chords, it was only natural that the first thing he did was write a song. And another one. And another one.
In 1995, he chased his dream of being a professional songwriter to Nashville, TN from his home in Harrells Store, NC and never looked back. He scored his first hit in 2002 on Lyric Street recording artist, Kevin Denney, with “That’s Just Jessie”.
In 2006, he struck solid platinum with his first number one on Billy Currington with the most played song of that year, “Must Be Doin’ Somethin’ Right”. This earned him the coveted Music Row Magazine Breakthrough Writer Of The Year Award along with platinum single, album, and ringtone awards.
Recently, he made his debut as a producer with Australian artist, Benn Gunn. The first single (which Jason also co-wrote), “Girls Like Guys With Trucks”, yielded an Australian three week number one. He just produced Canadian artist, ex-Cold Creek County lead singer, Brandon Scott’s highly anticipated solo debut as well as EP releases on artists Cody Webb and Mick Lindsay.
