ASCAP called it “The summer song of the year.” Rob Crosby: Born and raised in Sumter, South Carolina, a small town 80 miles from the coast, Rob has since moved to Nashville. He has scored hits as both a writer and an artist. Pete Sallis: I started writing songs in high school. I wanted to express what I was feeling inside. Sometimes it would be spiritual song reflecting my faith, or a song about a girl that I liked or didn't like after we broke up, or a song about my views on life. I'll never forget singing my first song I wrote on stage for a high school talent show and hearing the applause of the audience. I was hooked!! After high school, I knew I wanted to do music full time and since Nashville was the one place where music was made, I decided to move to Nashville. I went to Belmont University for four years and then got a gig on the road as a drummer. A dream come true!! Making a living as a musician. I traveled on the road for almost a decade and have played for different artists like Bob Carlilse, Michael English, Charlie Peacock, Mindy McCready, Trent Wilmon, Tim Rushlow (Little Texas singer), Derryl Perry, and many others. Wood Newton: Wood Newton is an American songwriter and musician based in Nashville, Tennessee. Newton was born in Hampton, Arkansas, and graduated from Hampton High School in Hampton, Arkansas in 1964. He graduated from the University of Arkansas in 1970.
