the songwriter {Nashville}: Danny Flowers (Episode 3)

It was an honor sitting down with the soulful Danny Flowers for a heart to heart about crafting The Blues, choosing music as a higher calling, and life itself.

Flowers’ writing credits span several genres and his flexibility as a guitarist and wordsmith is well-known. He penned “Tulsa Time” which was a #1 hit for both Eric Clapton and Don Williams. Williams then had hits with “Back In My Younger Days”, “Senorita”, and “To Be Your Man”. Emmylou Harris recorded “Before Believing” as the title cut for her Pieces Of The Sky album. “Gulf Coast Highway” was recorded by Emmylou Harris and Willie Nelson as well as by Nanci Griffith and Evangeline. Most recently Danny’s “I Was A Burden” was recorded by Lee Ann Womack and the Blind Boys of Alabama. The list goes on.

Danny Flowers may be best known for having penned classic hits for other artists. But as a solo artist his bluesy blend of raw emotion, combined with a heartfelt yearning, will speak to your very soul. Danny’s instrumentality has also earned him a high level of notoriety in the industry.
