On Tues., Jan. 24 Combustion Music hosted an intimate songwriter showcase at Gary Allan’s new clothing store, The Label. Combustion writers Ashley Gorley, Blair Daly, Brett James, Matthew West, Kelly Archer, Matt Jenkins, Will Bowen, and Chase Foster, as well as special guest Sarah Buxton, played to a room full of producers, record label personnel and artists including Allan, the JaneDear Girls, and Republic Nashville new signee Jackie Lee.
Combustion, a partnership with Warner/Chappell Music, has six singles on the country charts, including the No. 1 pop smash “Mr. Know It All” by Kelly Clarkson (written by Brett James), and Carrie Underwood’s new single “Good Girl” (written by Ashley Gorley).
The event was the brainchild of Combustion’s Creative Manager Kenley Flynn and newcomer Colt Chamberlain, and was executed with the help of Renee Layher of The Label, and Chaise Crosslin of Lytle Management.
