Episode 4 | Allen Shamblin - Country Music Songwriting
In episode 4, Calvin and Chris show up on Country Music Songwriting with Allen Shamblin. Allen Shamblin co-wrote one of the most popular country songs of the late '90s. "Don't Laugh at Me" achieved gold status when it was recorded by Mark Wills and it was named Song of the Year in 1999 by the Nashville Songwriters Association. It was also honored with a nomination in the same category from the Academy of Country Music. The folk trio of Peter, Paul & Mary covered the song that Shamblin authored with Steve Seskin, a touching number that advocates tolerance for both different and differently abled children among their peers. Many special interest groups have begun using it, including the Special Olympics, which invited Peter, Paul & Mary to sing their version of the song at the organization's World Games. Even groups aimed at adults of all sorts have unofficially adopted the plea for tolerance, including organizations for the homeless, gays, and the overweight. Shamblin has four more number one songs to his credit, "We Were in Love," "In This Life," "Walk on Faith," and "He Walked on Water." The Tennessee native was raised near Houston, TX, in the town of Huffman. During high school, he listened to country artists Guy Clark, Rodney Crowell, and Kris Kristofferson while becoming a self-taught guitar player. He studied marketing at Sam Houston State University and later found employment as an appraiser in real estate. He continued to pursue music in his off hours, writing songs in the evening. When he had 14 songs ready in 1987, he relocated to Nashville. While waiting for a songwriting deal, Shamblin supported himself with a warehouse job and by parking cars, among other things. Less than a year later, Hayes Street Music/Almo Music Corp. brought him aboard its staff. Before another year had passed, a number of artists were recording his compositions, including the Forester Sisters and Lee Greenwood. Randy Travis took Shamblin's "He Walked on Water" to the number one spot on the country charts in 1990. Five years after landing the staff job, he broke away and started the publishing company Built on Rock Music. The songwriter has produced more than 100 compositions for a diverse group of artists ranging from Prince and Bette Midler to Willie Nelson, Patty Loveless, Dolly Parton, and Wynonna Judd, among others.

Episode 3 | Bryan White - Perfectionism in the Music Industry
In Episode 3 we're showing up on Perfectionism in the Music Industry with Bryan White. “It feels a little bit like a dream.” That was the first thing said by Bryan White, who is blessed to have experienced life-changing success as a country music superstar in the 1990’s, when asked about what is currently happening on the other side of the world with his career. “God Gave Me You,” a song White originally released back in 1999, has been a massive hit in the Philippines for the past year. The song caught on in the Philippines in 2011, but became something of a phenomenon last year when Maine Mendoza, also known as Yaya Dub, and Alden Richards chose “God Gave Me You” as the theme song for their wildly popular variety show “Eat Beluga.” White noticed some international activity on his various social media platforms – Twitter, Facebook and Instagram – and then there were “millions upon millions of YouTube views on the song.” Fans had made lyric videos and one in particular has over 33 million views. Then a friend called to say he was in Manila and heard the song playing on the radio. The Oklahoma native wasn’t exactly sure about what was unfolding – “your first thought is, ‘seriously?’” – but he recorded a 90-second video message thanking his newfound fan base for their support. It wasn’t until his first trip there in December 2015 that he truly understood the scope of impact “God Gave Me You” was having in the Philippines and other Asian countries. “It’s just one of those moments where everything lined up,” said White, who described the culture as extremely humble and kind. He suspects the lyrics, which he describes as a message of humility, resonates with the extremely loving culture of the Philippines. “I think it hit people in a way that was very primal.” He added, “When I stepped off the plane, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is real.’ It was an emotional trip for me. I wanted very much to make a good first impression and start building something.” That something is as big as he’s ever experienced. White had the honor of performing to thousands at Smart Araneta Coliseum and as many as 5,000 people would show up for autograph signings. Even the hotel staff treated him like royalty. The entire trip was greater than anything he experienced at the height of his success on commercial country radio. “I think seeing people so emotionally affected with us just being there,” White said, “is when it hit me. I don’t know how these things happen — this kind of phenomena — but it was amazing to see. I remember not being able to go to sleep because I was just so jazzed.” “God Gave Me You” was originally cut for his album How Lucky I Am. At the time, label executives wanted to “do something different and shake it up,” so White co-produced six sides himself, while Dan Huff produced the other six. It was a departure of sorts from the producers who had worked on his first three albums. Everyone involved was looking for songs and White was also writing material when his longtime friend and collaborator James Dean Hicks brought in “God Gave Me You.” Much like White, “God Gave Me You” was a contemporary song, “especially for what was going on in country music in the late 90s,” but wouldn’t be today. Nearly two decades later, White can still hear a lot of passion and soul in the original track, but it’s the lyrics that have held up to the test of time. “That’s how it’s supposed to happen,” Steve Wariner told White. “Songs became hits in the 70s because the people – they loved it – and it made an impact.” White’s prolific recording career began in 1994 with the release of his self-titled certified-Platinum debut followed by back-to-back platinum selling albums Between Now and Forever (1996) and The Right Place (1997). He released six No. 1 singles – “So Much for Pretending,” “Sittin’ on Go,” “I’m Not Supposed to Love You Anymore,” “Rebecca Lynn,” “Someone Else’s Star” and “From This Moment On,” which he recorded with Shania Twain – along with eight more Top 40 singles. His list of honors include a Grammy, recognition from the Country Music Association (1996 Horizon Award winner) and Academy of Country Music (1996 New Male Vocalist winner) plus five CMT Awards, Canadian Country Music Awards and TNN/Music City News Awards. In 1998, White was voted one of People magazines “50 Most Beautiful People.” His songwriting credits include cuts with Wynonna, LeAnn Rimes and Joe Diffie, while Sawyer Brown (“I Don’t Believe in Goodbye”) and Diamond Rio (“Imagine That”) both reached No. 3 on the charts with songs penned by White. Whether he’s on stage at the Opry or somewhere in Asia, White has secured a spot in the musical landscape of country music. He’s always been known as a singer and a songwriter – namely grooves and melodies – and now he’s also regarded for his work producing other artists in the studio. Since first making his way to Nashville, White has grown and matured as an artist. White is fortunate to have established a legacy thanks to the U.S. fans who initially supported him. Now his newfound success in the Philippines has taught the married father of two to never hesitate when it comes to writing and recording music with broader brush strokes. He recently returned to Manila to celebrate the one-year anniversary of #AlDub – the affectionate nickname for the love affair of Alden and Yaya Dub – and is finishing up work on an EP he said is inspired by his success in the Philippines. The release will feature an acoustic version of “God Gave Me You” along with a pair of new tracks – “Never Get Around to It” and “Finally Home” – and might include an additional live bonus track. “I never would have foreseen this,” White said. “I had this experience early in my career, and didn’t think it could happen again. It’s infused me with a renewed sense of energy and gratefulness and it’s made me want to write more.” He added, “It’s a blessing knowing your music has traveled so far and is still taking me places.” For more about Bryan visit https://www.bryanwhite.com

Pentatonix’s most recent release, the platinum selling album That’s Christmas to Me, was the #1 holiday album in the country and featured the title track written wholly by the group. The six videos in support of the holiday album – “Dance of The Sugar Plum Fairy”, “White Winter Hymnal,” “Winter Wonderland / Don’t Worry Be Happy” ft. Tori Kelly, “Mary, Did You Know?”, “Silent Night” and their original song and title track, “That’s Christmas To Me” – have been viewed more than 64 million times. Pentatonix has also recently released PTX Vol. III, which has already released 4 music videos, yielding more than 45 million views. The group has eclipsed 7 million YouTube subscribers (more than both Avicii and Beyoncé), with more than 800 million cumulative views. Their music video for “Daft Punk” has been viewed more than 100 million times and the medley earned the group their first Grammy win. To date, Pentatonix has released 5 albums, each landing in the top 15 of Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and cumulatively selling roughly 1.7 million albums. Kevin grew up in the small town of Owensboro, Kentucky, the son of a Nigerian psychiatrist and a Grenadian nurse. At an early age, Kevin began learning piano, cello and saxophone. He performed at Carnegie Hall twice as soloist on the cello and saxophone and has appeared on NPR’s From The Top. After finishing high school at Phillips Academy Andover, Kevin enrolled in and graduated from Yale University where he was pre-med and majored in East Asian Studies. He spent 18 months in Beijing becoming fluent in Chinese as a part of his Yale fellowship. While in college, Kevin began developing his “celloboxing” skills and in 2009, he won second place in the “Celebrate and Collaborate with Yo-Yo Ma” international competition. Ma would call Kevin’s celloboxing version of “Dona Nobis Pacem” both “inventive and unexpected.” In 2011, Kevin’s “Julie-O” celloboxing YouTube video was featured by CBS, AOL, Huffington Post andWashington Post, among others. Kevin was also named one of 100 “History Makers in the Making” by NBC’s TheGrio and was hand-chosen by Quincy Jones to represent him in concert at the 2012 Montreux Jazz Festival alongside Bobby McFerrin and Chick Corea. On March 10th 2015, Kevin released his first solo album, The Renegade EP. courtesy of RCA Records. The album features classically reimagined versions of popular songs like “All of Me”, “Stay With Me”, and “Heart Attack”, as well as Kevin’s original composition “Renegade”. The album debuted #1 on Billboard Traditional Classical and Classical Crossover charts, in addition to staying #1 on iTunes classical albums for weeks. As Kevin puts it: “I think this is the beginning of a different sound I’m trying to popularize, just like Pharrell did, just like Quincy Jones did. I’m still developing…but I’m excited for the journey.” For more info about Kevin, visit http://kevinolusola.com
