Grammy® nominee Aimee Mayo. Aimee is one of the few female writers to receive both BMI”s ‘Country Song of the Year’ and BMI’s ‘Country Songwriter of the Year,’ putting her in the elite company of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift and she is the author of a compelling new memoir, TALKING TO THE SKY: A Memoir of Living You…
Her songs have spent 26 weeks in the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, and albums featuring her songs have sold over 155 million units worldwide. She is primarily known for writing hits for artists such as Lonestar, Martina McBride, Sara Evans, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Adam Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Boyz II Men, Brad Paisley, Backstreet Boys, Billy Currington, Kellie Pickler and more. 
She is such a strong women and during our podcast conversation she tells the story of how diary writing in her very first journal after her Dad shot himself was a saving grace and from then on became a way for her to process and cope through what she was going to endure in her life. 
Her father was also a hit songwriter Danny Mayo and really showed her what was possible with music in the industry, she saw him winning awards to living homeless on the street struggling with mental health issues. 
This podcast will be great for anyone wanting to get to know Aimee better and her journey through living with a father with mental illness and experiencing a domestically abusive relationship. It gets deep fast and I'm so grateful for her honestly and openness talking about such things that need to be talked about. 
I highly recommend getting a copy of her book as she is such a beautiful writer and it really draws you in to her life and experiences with compassion and grace.
