Listen as Double-L introduces you to singer/songwriter/author Aimee Mayo! They discuss some of her biggest hits including Martina’s “This One’s For the Girls” and Lonestar’s “Amazed”, which, by the way, celebrates its’ 20th Anniversary this year!
-Parade calls her memoir “both tragic and triumphantly hilarious”
GRAMMY® nominated songwriter Aimee Mayo has written songs that have spent a whopping 26 weeks on Billboard’s No. 1 spot, including a BMI 8 Million Plays Award. She 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 company of Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift.
TALKING TO THE SKY is her unforgettable memoir — it is heartbreaking (her dad shot himself on Christmas Eve when she was 8 years old, thankfully, he lived — he was the writer of “Keeper Of The Stars” “Jesus And Mama (Always Loved Me), “If I Had You,” “Feed Jake,” and many more hits) and it’s hilarious (her Rick Springfield story will knock you off your chair!).
