Tim started his musical career on the West Coast playing the Bakersfield style of music in clubs and dance halls in Los Angeles and up and down the coast, opening for such acts as Leroy Parnell, Big House and Toby Keith. Tim later moved to Middle Tennessee, where he signed his first publishing deal with Hayes Street Music, a Don Schlitz company. Tim has enjoyed many major label artist cuts including the 5-week number one single “My List” recorded by Toby Keith. “My List” went on to become the R&R most-played song for the year 2003 and inspired the book, “My List: 24 Reflections on Life’s Priorities," published by McGraw-Hill also in 2003. Tim has had songs featured in film and television and also has had songs recorded by Lee Ann Womack, Jeff Bates, Tim Rushlow, Mark Wills, Josh Gracin, Darius Rucker, Chris Young and Billy Ray Cyrus. He has also had Top Ten singles with “It’s Good To Be Us,” recorded by Bucky Covington, “Holler Back,” the debut from The Lost Trailers and “He’s Mine,” by Rodney Atkins. His song “Love Like Crazy,” recorded by Lee Brice, went # 1 in 2010 and broke a record established by Eddy Arnold for the longest chart run in the history of the Hot Country Songs charts. He also co-wrote George Strait’s last number # 1- “Give it all We Got Tonight”.
