Don Henry

Don Henry

Years ago I recorded a demo project for RCA Records. Mary Martin, my A&R liaison at RCA, sent me on a quest for a “hit”. Find some “great songs,” she said.

On Music Row, that’s sort of like searching for the Holy Grail in Grails-R-Us. Plenty of perfectly good grails to choose from. My search led me to the office Walter Campbell at Tree Music Publishing. I asked him to play me songs he wouldn’t pitch to just everyone. I said wanted to hear something “different”. The first song he played me was Into a Mall by Don Henry.

From that moment on, I have been a Don Henry fan. He never fails to entertain and inspire me. His melodies, lyrics, and arrangements always challenge me to dig a little deeper in different places when I attempt to write a song. If there truly is a “Holy Grail” in Nashville, it quite possibly could be hidden away in a publishing company’s vault in a box marked “Don Henry Songs”.
