“Writers In The Round”

What does “in the round” mean, you ask? Made famous by the Bluebird Café but seen in venues all over Nashville, live shows are often done by several songwriters sitting “in the round” (or sometimes in a row), who take turns to tell the stories of their songs and then sing them, to the delight of the audience.  It is commonplace to hear songwriters sing smash hit songs known worldwide when attending a writer’s round in Nashville.  Dreamers In The Round offers you the opportunity to see these kinds of shows in YOUR town, and also LEARN from those hit songwriters!

KEITH BURNS ~ CHIEF DREAMER

From an early age this Jonesboro Georgia cardinal was born to fly…

From a small boy keeping time by slapping out hand bone while his uncles picked flattops on the front porch, Keith Burns has always had his eyes on the stars. “I’ve always wanted to be on stage as early as I can remember. I was such a huge fan of Elvis and Neil Diamond. The way the entertained their fans was unbelievable to me. I would sit in front of the mirror for hours trying to copy them.”

At the age of 15 Keith wrote his first song on guitar. He would never have dreamed that he would go on to have his songs recorded by Joe Diffie, Sammy Kershaw, Hootie and the Blowfish and Moe Bandy, just to name a few. “To start out with songwriting was more like an outlet for me. I never dreamed I could make a living at it. I just wanted to perform but as I started writing more I quickly learned that I might be pretty good at this.”

As soon as Keith graduated from Jonesboro High School he started playing the honky tonks around Atlanta where he ended up fronting the house band at Copper Dollar Saloon, where his band Midnight Rider caught the eye of rising country star Joe Diffie. When Joe asked the band to go on the road with him, Keith packed his guitars and moved to Nashville. “Playing bass and touring with Joe meant so much to me as a writer, musician and artist. He taught me so many things about the music business that when I was ready to put my own project together I was confident that I could be successful.”

And successful he was! As founding member of the group Trick Pony, Keith and his bandmates rode their way to 3 Top 10 singles in a row. “Pour Me” and “Just What I Do” were co-written by Keith and the latter was nominated for a Grammy Award for Top Vocal Performance by a Country Group. They capped that off by winning Academy of Country Music’s Top New Vocal Group and the American Music Awards’ Top New Artist of the Year. Keith and the Ponies followed with Top 20 hits “It’s a Heartache”, “On A Mission” and “The Bride”.

In late 2006, Burns & Poe was born through a fruitful musical partnership with Michelle Poe. A critically acclaimed double album was followed by 4 Top 20 hits and the award for 2010 Music Row Independent Artist of the Year.

J. MICHAEL HARTER

It takes more than a pleasing voice, a knack for turning a phrase into a lyric, the personality to engage a crowd and the energy to bring them to their feet to be a great entertainer. It also takes knowing that, above all else, you were born to do it.

“I believe there’s a reason that I’ve come this far and I don’t think God would play a trick on me,” Michael says with an omnipresent smile. “So, I’m really excited to see what he has planned because if all of this was just to get here, then he must have something really big planned.” 

And Michael has come far. Literally, all the way from Tempe, Arizona. He grew up in a home where words and music were a part of every day life. His mother wrote romance novels while his father played in bands and also provided entertainment, with the help of Michael’s grandfather, for Bible studies held at the family’s home. When plans to become the next white Michael Jordan didn’t pan out after basketball try-outs, the 13-year-old was inspired to follow in his father’s footsteps. “My dad had offered me guitar lessons and I said I would if I didn’t make the freshman basketball team,” he laughs. “I told him, ‘Dad, I think I’ll take you up on those guitar lessons if you still want to do it.”

On an old, blue Alvarez, Michael immersed himself in the movement that blasted country music to mainstream public awareness in the 1990s. “Garth Brooks really got me,” he remembers. “George Strait, Clint Black, Alan Jackson. My dad and my grandpa were listening to Ronnie Milsap, Alabama, Chris LeDoux and that was the stuff I grew up on and covered when I got old enough to play in the bars and honky-tonks around Arizona.”

Having the wherewithal to realize he was a big fish in a small pond in his community he packed up and moved to Nashville in 1999. With the help of a private investor, Michael was able to work with the late David Skepner, Loretta Lynn’s former manager, and continued cultivating his music business education in the school of hard knocks. But after three years, there was still no record deal or promise of stardom. “I was so frustrated,” he says. “I told my dad I was going to move home. Two weeks later, I got a phone call from Blake Mevis.”
Blake, who produced projects for George Strait and Keith Whitley, and wrote hits like “Fool Hearted Memory,” brought the newly formed Broken Bow Records to Michael who became the label’s first charting single, “Hard Call to Make.” But as much as a voice, the ability to write a song, charisma and desire are a part of an entertainer’s success, so is timing. And the timing wasn’t right for Michael to lock himself into the business. So, he returned to Arizona, a little bruised, a little wiser, but with a smoldering desire to perform. 

So, he did. He started a landscaping company to pay the bills, but he enlisted the help of brother Scott and sister Leslie to perform at local events around Arizona State University. And it was one of those events that became the catalyst for his return to Music City. “It was New Years Eve 2006 and we played this huge block party for around 500,000. There were stages set up for a stretch of two miles,” Michael recalls. “The crowd was going crazy and we started getting interference from other people’s wireless equipment through ours. The entire hour-and-a-half show got canned. I was so mad, I told my brother and sister, ‘That’s it. I’m going back to Nashville. I’m buying a house we can all live in and if you guys want to go, let’s go.”

The Harters, whom Michael describes as “acid folk,” signed to Bigger Picture in 2008 and by 2011, after two singles and miles of touring, Leslie had enough of the often cutthroat business. It devastated Michael, but not enough to give up. He’d started a publishing company—Anozira—with his dad and brother and threw himself into songwriting.

The tenacity paid off. In a writing appointment with Trey Matthews and Bud Lee, legendary manager, John Dorris (Blake Shelton, John Michael Montgomery), overheard the magnetic young singer and encouraged Michael to take another swing. And he is, but he’s doing it on his own terms.

“I’m going back to my roots,” he says. “The Garths, the George Straits, that era. I’m tapping from the only place I know to tap and that’s what I love to listen to. So, I write songs the way I would want to hear them and the production is done the way I want to hear them. I don’t know if that’s going to make me right or wrong, but I’d rather fail being myself than succeed trying to conform to something.” And, thanks to some promising steps in the past, he has a head start. “A lot of the development has been done,” says Michael. “People know who I am at radio. People in the business know who I am. It’s in place, it’s just whether the songs resonate.”

It is in place—the voice, the look, the songs, the charisma, the energy, the tenacity and the attitude of someone that knows that he’ll make music regardless. “When we lost the deal at Bigger Picture, I think the thing that scared me the most was the thought that I might not be able to do this any more for a living,” he confesses. “I wasn’t making a lot of money, but I loved what I did. So, I would like to continue to make a living doing what I love, which is being on stage performing and writing songs, recording songs, traveling around and sharing that with people. Hopefully, I can continue to do that until the day I die. If that means I make enough money to pay my bills, then that’s what I’ll do. If I make millions, that would be great. I just want to keep doing this.”
