A Grammy Award winning songwriter and producer, Luke Laird has branched out to release his debut full length album “Music Row”.
Written and produced by Laird, “Music Row” is a musical autobiography of his journey as a young boy in rural Pennsylvania to becoming an award winning songwriter with numerous Grammy, Academy of Country Music, and Country Music Association awards in his trophy case.
On August 18, Laird launched his radio show on Apple Music that helps Country music fans discover or rediscover favourites from days gone by.
Speaking on his debut release; Laird said, “I’ve always been a fan of albums, but I’m not a huge fan of writing songs and randomly throwing them together then calling it an album. But this made sense. It’s my story as a songwriter who moved to Nashville to write songs for other people.”
He added, “when I write a song, I enjoy it, and after I finish it, I like playing it, but really, as a songwriter, you want to share your songs with people. That’s my favorite part of writing songs––sharing them, just seeing people connect to them. It’s such a gift.”
Laird has 24 number one hits, two Grammy Awards, and was named Songwriter of the Year by BMI and the Academy of Country Music.
