Rising country chart-topper Drew Fish hosted his fifth semi-annual songwriters retreat this week. The East Texas gathering boasted an impressive group of Grammy Award-winning, seasoned hitmakers including Don Rollins (George Jones, Alan Jackson); Roger Brown (George Strait, Randy Travis); Tommy Conners (Chris LeDoux, Willie Nelson); Luke Reed (George Strait, Gary Allan); Johnny Mears (Janie Fricke, Shenandoah) and burgeoning wordsmiths including Jake Worthington, Jon Stork, Wynn Williams, Bradley Banning, Ray Johnston, David Banning, Kyle Level, James Lann, Rusty Tabor, Austin Moody, Kylie Frey, David Adam Byrnes, Julia Hatfield, Felix Truvere, Jeff Silvey, Holly Tucker and Brandon Steadman.

What makes this retreat so special is the people who attend,” says Fish. “Everyone is so focused on helping everyone else succeed.  I’m extremely blessed to have such talented friends who drive from across the country to spend a week writing songs together. It’s more than just a songwriters retreat. It’s a reunion.”

Last month, The Drew Fish Band’s latest single ‘Better Place’ hit #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report (TRRR). Produced by multiple Grammy Award winner Adam Odor, the track was co-written with Fish by one of country music’s most celebrated hit makers, Byron Hill (“Fool Hearted Memory” by George Strait, “Born Country” by Alabama, “High-Tech Redneck” by George Jones).   Click here to listen or stream “Better Place now on Spotify.  Watch the video here.
