He was a mainstay at Nashville's Combine Music, a publishing company that also boasted Kris Kristofferson and Tony Joe White.

Some of his other hits included Mark Chesnutt's "Bubba Shot the Jukebox," Gary Morris's "The Love She Found In Me," Garth Brooks' "Calling Baton Rouge" and the Dixie Chicks' "Goodbye Earl."
