A widely respected songwriter in many genres, James has spent over two decades writing songs that have been honored with Grammys, Country Music Association and Academy Country Music Awards, and countless other Billboard Chart Toppers and finally, three songs collectively surpassed the BMI Certified Radio Spin 5 Million mark.
He has written giant hits for some of music’s most talented voices ranging from Diamond Rio to Dwight Yoakum to Martina McBride
His latest success has carried over from Music Row to Beale Street by working with guitar-slinger Joe Bonamassa, Britain’s Joanne Shaw Taylor and the powerhouse voice of Beth Hart.
His songs always have a soul and blues undertone. As a singer, James’ voice has that rough soul that is his secret weapon as a writer and performer. As a guitar player, he lets his Fender Strat do the talking. $20 donation requested.
