This week, Chris sits down with songwriter and country music star Cam, whose hit song, “Burning House”, is still the best-selling country song by a female solo artist over the past 5 years. After crowdfunding her first record and getting cuts with artists like Miley Cyrus and Maggie Rose, Cam moved to Nashville to pursue a publishing deal, and has since worked with an impressive list of collaborators, including Tyler Johnson, Jeff Bhasker, Sam Smith, Harry Styles, Jack Antanoff and the late Avicii.
This episode is celebrating International Women’s Day on March 8th. Cam has been a vocal advocate for equality for women, especially in country music (she was even named a member of the Recording Academy Diversity and Inclusion Task Force in 2018). Settle in for an illuminating chat not only about her incredible journey in the music business, songwriting process and new album “The Otherside”, but her thoughts on closing the gender gap in the entertainment industry and building a music community that is inclusive and welcoming to everyone.
