The Weekly Wrap Up – Oh What a Night!
“Oh What a Night” is a song title, but it is also the best way to describe our very first GSC POP Event of 2014 featuring top Nashville publisher Woody Bomar! Or maybe I should borrow the title to a song Woody took that was written by Nancy Watson and co-written by Brad Yunek, “WOW!”
Thanks to each of you for allowing me to represent YOU and your songs. It is a privilege I never take for granted.
First of all, it was wonderful to have Mary Haller to join us at Green Hills publishing! What a difference a year can make! In March of 2013, Mary purchase three POP opportunities as she wanted Woody to hear who she was as a writer. I remember playing Mary’s songs and especially enjoying her song “If you Give a Man a Mower.” Woody heard something in Mary’s songs that interested him and all of last year he chose to mentor her and help her grow in the industry and as a writer. Mary now has a real working relationship with Woody and sends her songs directly to him for review! Even better, Woody currently has one of Mary’s songs on hold with a major recording artist! All in less than 1 year!
Mary, we are all crossing our fingers with you! Your success is well deserved and hard earned. Thank you for sharing your journey with me and your GSC family. We celebrate and congratulate you knowing that the best is yet to come!
Woody took some more songs last night, too! Let’s see if your success story might be next.
Congratulations to the following GSC Members! Woody wanted to listen again to your songs and even said that he preferred to personally get back to you. What an honor for the following GSC members:
