When he performed at Canfest 2018, David Lee Murphy told stories of how he wrote many hits for others over the last dozen years.
He has made a pretty good living writing songs for other artists, like Blake Shelton (“The More I Drink”), Jason Aldean (“Big Green Tractor,” “I Break Everything I Touch,” “Lonesome USA”), Jake Owen (“Anywhere With You”), and Chesney (“Live a Little,” “Living in Fast Forward,” “Bar at the End of the World,” “Til It’s Gone,” “Just Not Today,” “Pirate Flag,” “Winnebago”). Many other artists are on that list.
Murphy had recently written more songs for Kenny Chesney's upcoming album. When Chesney heard the tunes, he said it might be time for David Lee to get back in front of the mic.
The big hit "Everything's Gonna Be Alright" is the first step in that direction. The duet between Murphy and Chesney was huge at Canfest 2018 and continues to be a favorite in Kat Country Rate 'Em Roadhouse.
