Posted in News on November 22, 2006
The two ambidextrous co-writers of Josh Turner's No. 1 hit "Would You Go with Me" attracted a crowd teeming with talent to BMI's Music Row offices recently. Legends John Prine and Cowboy Jack Clement were among those on hand to congratulate Shawn Camp, John Scott Sherrill and Josh Turner on a job well done.

The song's penmen, Camp and Sherrill, first experienced success as a pair when Brooks & Dunn took "How Long Gone" to the top of the charts. Separately, singer, songwriter and guitarist Shawn Camp records critically acclaimed albums of his own and writes jewels for masters of their domains like Guy Clark and Garth Brooks. Songwriting legend-in-the-making John Scott Sherrill's catalog keeps growing, with country standards including Steve Wariner's "Some Fools Never Learn" and Patty Loveless' "Nothin' But the Wheel" already under his belt.

The room filled up quickly with some of the most talented pickers and voices in town. Pictured are (l to r): BMI's David Preston, songwriter John Scott Sherrill, guitarist & singer/songwriter Pat McLaughlin, artist Josh Turner and BMI songwriter John Prine.

Classic country enthusiasts keep cheering on Josh Turner, whose first two albums have both been certified platinum. Turner's quintessential country pipes and songwriting know-how lay the foundation for his burgeoning career and promising future.

It was a good day for one of Nashville's premiere indie publishing companies, Big Yellow Dog, whose staff writers include John Scott Sherrill and Shawn Camp.
