Country Music Success Stories | Season 2 Episode two - Chris Lindsey
I think I am known as a nice guy. It’s more important to be a great person than it is to be a hit songwriter.
- Chris Lindsey
In this episode, we’re heading back to Aimeeland, a famous recording studio just outside of Nashville for an interview with Grammy nominated hit songwriter, Chris Lindsey. In this magical studio nestled beside the home he shares with wife Aimee Mayo and their three children, Chris has worked with just about every major country artist including Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Blake Shelton, Mark Wills, Martina McBride and many more. Known as Nashville’s premiere husband and wife songwriting team, Chris and Aimee co-wrote Lonestar’s 1999 multi-format smash“Amazed” which spent 21 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Country charts, winning Song of the Year at the ACM Awards. And there have been dozens of top 10 songs to follow for Chris who has over 250 commercial recordings of his songs which have sold 90 million records and counting. In this interview, Chris sat with us at an old, hand-painted writing table to talk about his early childhood in Las Vegas just outside of Area 51, what Nashville was like when he arrived nearly 25 year ago, how he and Aimee write together, and what it takes to be a truly great songwriter.
