It’s no secret that Nashville is a town made up of songwriters. On almost any given night you can walk into any venue boasting live music and probably listen to a songwriter with a least a No. 1 hit to their credit, if not some other huge award. Hearing songwriters sing those hits others made famous is a really cool and unique experience and sometimes, the songwriter sings it even better than the singer.
6 Nashville Songwriters Singing Songs They Wrote For Other People:
1. Natalie Hemby // “Tornado” (Little Big Town)
Natalie Hemby is most well-known for her co-writing credits with Miranda Lambert, but two of her biggest hits come from Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” and “Tornado.” The best part of Hemby always singing this song is how she always finds a way to bring Karen Fairchild’s stage fan into the conversation.
