Dylan Altman is not only an amazing songwriter penning such hits as "Take A Little Ride", "Barefoot Blue Jean Night" & "Watch The Wind Blow By" but he is quite the comedian as well.  Marshall Altman is another northern transplant that has been taking over Music City, producing songs/albums for Walker Hayes, Jesse James, Gabe Dixon and Natasha Bedingfield & Matt Nathanson just to name a few.

Although these writers have been creating a great deal of buzz around Nashville lately. busbee has a huge number of multi genre hits, penning tunes for P!nk, Jason Aldean Kelly Clarkson, Lady Antebellum, Hunter Hayes & Timbaland just to name a few. Luke Dick has been described as a “keen troubadour” with songs like: Life Ain’t Hard, Don’t Matter To Me, Get Through To You. Sea The Desert 's personal fave, English recording artist Silvas has been keeping busy writing songs for herself and for others: It’s Too Late, I’m Not Your Girlfriend, This Time, Don’t Look Back, Last Call, Everytime I Think Of You. Then topping the show off are Capitol recording artists The Brothers Osborne (John and TJ).
