The State of Nashville Songwriting + Vegas Connection with Regie Hamm :: #PickRichsBrain Episode 10
In episode 10 of #pickrichsbrain, Rich discusses the trials and tribulations of the Nashville songwriting industry with mutli-award winning songwriter, blogger, author and producer Regie Hamm.
Regie has spent his entire professional life in the music business.
His life has had all the twists, turns, and drama of a Hollywood movie. He was raised in Pentecostal churches, tent revivals, and all night singings. Regie rose from those humble beginnings to experience unprecedented success in the music industry, writing 18 number one hits from 1994 to 2001. With Grammy and Dove nominations, and winning SESAC’s Songwriter of the Year award four times, Regie was about to launch into that same stratosphere as a pop artist signed to Universal Records.
Nothing would prepare him, however, for the drama he would face in adopting a little girl from China in 2003, embarking on a 5 year odyssey to discover her severe genetic disorder, watching his life and a career spin out of control and finally landing on the other side in the rarest of places.
Rich and Regie discuss the tragic Vegas shooting, in which Rich was directly involved as a witness and an unwitting target. Rich was performing with Jason Aldean in front of thousands of fans when shots rang out during the October 1st concert. Regie and his Ghost Town Troubadours were the first act to play Mandalay Bay, 5 days after the tragic event, while the horrific images were still fresh in the minds of the American public.
