Brent Baxter is a Nashville-based lyricist and songwriting coach. Brent’s first cut came in early 2004 with “Monday Morning Church,” recorded by Alan Jackson. The song went on to become a top five hit, honored as one of Nashville Songwriters Association International’s ten “Songs I Wish I’d Written.” In early 2005, Brent signed his first publishing deal as staff songwriter for Major Bob Music, which yielded cuts by Lady Antebellum, Randy Travis, and Lonestar, among others.
In 2009 and 2010, Brent wrote for a joint venture of Peer Music and RPM Music, which yielded cuts by Joe Nichols, Ray Stevens, Charles Billingsley, and Randy Kohrs. From 2010 through 2012, Brent was the flagship writer for Infinity Music Group, yielding cuts by Canadian star Gord Bamford, as well as comedy legend Ray Stevens, blues guitar legend Steve Cropper, Andy Griggs, Buddy Jewell, and new Curb artist, and Ruthie Collins.
Brent currently writes for his own publishing company, Cowboy Chords Music, and he’s also a songwriting coach with a couple hundred hours of one-on-one mentoring and workshop experience through his website, ManvsRow.com.
