Jerry Salley

From Sir Elton John’s only chart single to appear on the Billboard Country Chart (“Where We Both Say Goodbye” – duet with Australian artist Catherine Britt) to a Gospel song so popular it has been included in Church Hymnals (“His Strength Is Perfect”); from songs recorded by country music legends Loretta Lynn, The Oak Ridge Boys and Gene Watson to some of today’s biggest country stars like Reba McEntire, Toby Keith and Brad Paisley, Jerry’s long list of accomplishments speaks for itself.

His country hits include the Reba McEntire smash “I’m Gonna Take That Mountain”, “Breakin’ New Ground” (Wild Rose/Universal Records), “I Fell In The Water” (John Anderson/BNA Records), “How Do You Sleep At Night” (Wade Hayes/DCK/Columbia Records), and four other Billboard chart records. Jerry has written three #1 Gospel hits, several #2 Gospel hits and over a dozen other top ten/top twenty gospel songs.

In addition to songs recorded by the previously mentioned artists, he has had songs recorded by Patty Loveless, Joe Nichols, Darryl Worley, Travis Tritt, Tracy Lawrence, Neal McCoy, Mark Chesnutt, Cece Winans, The Whites, and many others. He is a six-time Dove Award nominee, having won a prestigious Dove for the 1990 Inspirational Song of the Year “His Strength Is Perfect”, recorded by and co-written with Steven Curtis Chapman.

Dave Gibson

Dave Gibson came to Nashville in the 1980’s in his old Ford van and hit the streets of Music City looking for a record deal and people to listen to the songs he wrote. Early meetings with music legend Tony Brown and Producer Norro Wilson led to his first Billboard hits with Steve Wariner, “Heart Trouble” and “Midnight Fire.” From there Gibson penned his first number one hit for the group Alabama, called “Jukebox In My Mind,” and went on to enjoy number one chart success with Tanya Tucker’s “If It Don’t Come Easy” and Confederate Railroad’s “Cadillac Kind” and “Queen of Memphis.”

In the early 90s, Gibson met producer Doug Johnson and Blue Miller, guitar player for Bob Seger’s Silver Bullet Band. Together, Dave and Blue formed the Academy of Country Music Award-winning Gibson/Miller Band and recorded several top ten hits, including “Texas Tattoo,” “High Rollin,” and a remake of “Mama’s Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cowboys,” which was featured in the movie “The Cowboy Way” with Keifer Sutherland and Woody Harrelson. Although the band parted ways just a few years later, Dave was still looking forward. His efforts as a songwriter had skyrocketed with songs like Joe Diffie’s poignant hit “Ships That Don’t Come In,” and Montgomery Gentry’s “Lonely and Gone.”

Act 2 – TBA

Dave Pahanish

Dave Pahanish has managed to come virtually out of nowhere to become an increasingly in-demand writer for the top stars of country music.

After scoring cuts on Jimmy Wayne’s ” Do You Believe Me Now” album, Dave and his production co-writer Joe West scored the title track to Toby Keith’s American Ride album.

Emily West also cut one of Dave’s songs, which should end up on an album if one ever comes out, and other artists are now clamoring for his songs including Tim McGraw and Keith Urban who recorded “Without You”.
