Have hit songwriter/artist Rhett Akins write a song for you!

2018 ACM Songwriter of the Year, Rhett Akins, has had an extremely impressive career so far, with success as both a solo artist and chart-topping songwriter. Rhett was signed to Decca Records in the mid 90s, where he had is first #1 hit, “That Ain’t My Truck” (which he also co-wrote). As a songwriter, Rhett has had a hand in Josh Turner’s “All Over Me,” Joe Nichols’ “Gimme That Girl,” Brooks & Dunn’s “Put a Girl in It,” Rodney Atkins’ “Take a Back Road,” Luke Bryan’s “I Don’t Want This Night to End and Huntin’ Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” Chris Young’s “I Can Take it From There,” Justin Moore’s “Point at You,” Billy Currington’s “Hey Girl”, Dustin Lynch’s “Mindreader”, Frankie Ballard’s “Young and Crazy” and Locash’s “ I Know Somebody” which is their first #1.

Rhett’s also responsible for Blake Shelton’s “All About Tonight,” “Boys ‘Round Here” and “Honey Bee,” the latter of which spent a total of four weeks at No. 1. His Jason Aldean cuts include a three week No. 1 in “When She Says Baby,” “Just Gettin’ Started” and “Tonight Looks Good on You.” He had another three week No. 1 with Thomas Rhett’s “It Goes Like This.” He also wrote TR’s “Get Me Some of That.” Rhett started 2017 off with a No. 1, for “Star Of The Show” which was co-written with his son, Thomas Rhett and their first No. 1 together. In March of 2017, John Pardi’s “Dirt On My Boots” went No.1, which is #27 out of 28 for Rhett Akins.

In 2010, Rhett was named the No. 4 Billboard Country Songwriter. The following year, BMI named him Songwriter of the Year. He won it again in 2014. His song “Honey Bee” became the highest selling digital debut by a country male solo artist. His biggest accomplishment, though, may be winning the CMA Triple Play award a total of seven times (2010, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018)! The award is presented to a songwriter who penned three No. 1 singles in a 12 month period.
