Songwriter Hillary Lindsey grew up in tiny Washington, Georgia. (pop. 4,000). After graduating from high school in 1994, she enrolled at Nashville’s Belmont University. She pursued songwriting and had her first #1 in 2001 as co-writer of “Blessed,” recorded by Martina McBride. Lindsey’s profile rose when she won the 2007 Grammy for Best Country Song, “Jesus, Take the Wheel,” sung by Carrie Underwood, who has turned to Lindsey often and found hits such as “So Small,” “Wasted,” “Just a Dream,” and “Last Name.” Lindsey collaborates with Lori McKenna and Liz Rose as the Love Junkies, and their successes includes Underwood’s “Cry Pretty,” Miranda Lambert’s “It All Comes Out in the Wash,” and Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” another Grammy winner for Best Country Song. Two Lindsey works appear in the film A Star Is Born. Lindsey’s recent credits include Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color” and Kacey Musgraves’s “Wonder Woman.”
