CMA of Texas Songwriter of the Year Thom Shepherd has had over 100 of his songs recorded, including the number one hits "Redneck Yacht Club," and "Riding with Private Malone"

Thom Shepherd is a touring artist who spent many years as a songwriter in Nashville. He performs constantly as a solo acoustic storyteller and as a duo with his artist/wife Coley McCabe.

Thom, and his Radio Margaritaville hit “Always Saturday Night,” are featured in “The Parrot Heads Documentary,” along with the legendary Jimmy Buffett.

Thom is the writer of five #1 singles for other artists - “Redneck Yacht Club,” recorded by Craig Morgan, “Riding with Private Malone” recorded by David Ball, Kyle Park’s “The Night Is Young,” Josh Abbott and Pat Green’s single, “My Texas,” and Kevin Fowler’s “Beer Season.”

In total Thom has had over 10 singles and over 100 songs recorded by artists including Easton Corbin, Pam Tillis, John Anderson, Lorrie Morgan, Colt Ford, Bucky Covington, George Jones, Trailer Choir, Montgomery Gentry, Buddy Jewell, and Cledus T. Judd.

After years of living in Nashville, Thom relocated to Texas in 2011 to pursue a full time touring career. “I’ve always written songs so that I could perform them live on stage,” he says. “It’s always exciting when someone else records one of my songs, but there is no greater feeling than connecting with an audience.“

His music has taken him on 9 tours performing for our military in 17 different countries.

    Thom is amazing to work with. Professional and ready to go from the start. From the start he had everything structured and all we needed to start was put magic to it! 10 out of 10 would recommend him for your next co-write and can't wait to get some more songs knocked out with him!

    Thom is an amazing person and songwriter and a true professional. He made the process so easy and cared about the song we were writing together. It was effortless really. I could write music with Thom 7 days a week and plan on using his services again real soon. I thank you again Thom for everything
