"Amazed" was a #1 hit for Lonestar in 2000, but it's also Chris Lindsey's love story. "That's the exact feeling I had for her," he says of his wife Aimee, his co-writer on the track.
Ever since "Amazed," Lindsey has been a top songwriter in Nashville, with hits for Kenny Chesney, Sara Evans, Keith Urban and many others. He's also host of the Pitch List podcast, now in its fourth season. It's a great listen if you're into songwriting, country music, or just like hearing fascinating stories from an industry insider.
Here, he talks about the ins and outs of songwriting in Nashville and shares a handful of song stories, including how an argument with Aimee gave him some lyrics for the Civil Wars song "Poison & Wine," and how he got away with writing a Tim McGraw song called "Drugs Or Jesus."
