Every songwriter dreams of getting the chance to write with some great songwriters with credits such as Dove Awards, GRAMMY Wins, BMI & ASCAP Awards and top charting songs … and achieve those accolades in his own career.
John has had the honor to collaborate with award winning songwriters such as Rebecca Peck, John Lemonis, Toni Jolene Clay, Gerald Crabb, Dianne Wilkinson, John Darin Rowsey, Daryl Williams, Jim Davis, Becky Hobbs, GRAMMY Winner Brad Davis, Marty Funderburk, Tonja Rose, Jeff Steele, Paula Breedlove, Brad Steele, Mark Narmore, Steve Hess and many others.
These collaborations have appeared on albums across many genres, and include songs charting on national Christian Music radio charts, iTunes albums chart, Billboard charts, Dove nominated albums and the nation’s largest Christian Music publication, The Singing News chart. Songs have landed on popular Spotify playlists like ‘New Music Friday Christian’, and have been performed by churches and choirs across the United States and other countries and used in ministries such as The Ark Encounter.
