Meet the Songwriters:
Born in Savannah, Georgia, and raised on nearby Tybee Island, Tony Arata is noted for his personal, poetic lyrics. He began writing songs in high school and played in regional country and rock bands while majoring in journalism at Georgia Southern University. He was discovered in an Atlanta nightclub by a representative of the Noble Vision Records. As a result, the label's Jim Glaser recorded Arata's first hit as a writer, 1983's "The Man in the Mirror."
Lee Thomas Miller
Lee Thomas Miller is an amazing songwriter. His credits include 7 number one country hits: “The Impossible” (Joe Nichols), “The World”, “I’m Still a Guy” and “Perfect Storm”- all by Brad Paisley, “You’re Gonna Miss This” for Trace Adkins, “I Just Wanna Be Mad” by Terri Clark and “Southern Girl” (Tim McGraw).
Wendell Lee Mobley (born in Celina, Ohio) is an incredible hit songwriter. He has written No. 1 hits for Rascal Flatts and Kenny Chesney. He began playing in local bands before moving to Nashville, Tennessee, where he found a job playing guitar for Jack Greene and Alabama.
Phil Vassar is as driven today as he was when he first left his Lynchburg, Virginia home to pursue – and realize – his dream of making his mark in entertainment. A career that has seen the release of eight albums, two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year trophies, Billboard Country Songwriter of the Year, countless hits as a singer and songwriter and a mantle full of awards and the launch of his own Rodeowave Entertainment label continues to expand and evolve.
