FIRST TIME PERFORMER AT SONGFEST 2019! DON’T MISS YOUR OPPORTUNITY TO SEE TROY PERFORM LIVE THIS YEAR!
Troy Johnson hails from Katy, TX and has been a writer in Nashville for over 15 years. He has had a slew of songs recorded by many independent artists along with majors such as Keith Urban, The Dixie Chicks, Sara Evans, Thompson Square, Montgomery Gentry, Trace Adkins and even James Taylor and Little River Band. He continues to be an integral part of the music community in Nashville and is currently writing and producing new acts for A Million Midnights Music owned in part by Dan Truman of Diamond Rio.
As regards the making of his own album Twelve, Johnson has said that he simply started to warm to the idea of writing his own record. High points on the disc include “Sweet Summertime,” which would fit nicely into the Ray Charles songbook; a gritty folk-rocker titled “Cold Spot” that rises to the level of the best of John Mellencamp; and a smattering of anthemic ballads (“Airplane,” “Everybody”) that bring to mind the solid songcraft of Five For Fighting’s John Ondrasik. As adept as he’s been at writing for others, it seems clear Johnson’s talent shines brightest when he’s writing for himself.
