Nashville songwriters Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin have begun a four-song and four-music video collaborative effort titled Shatter the Madness.

The first clip in their series uses their CMA Award-winning song, “The House That Built Me.” The remaining songs (“Legacy,” “Good Man Gone Bad” and “Shatter the Madness”) will be released every few weeks on iTunes and the music videos will follow suit, posting to tomdouglasmusic.com when each single is released.

Additional content, including interviews with the two writers, who discuss the stories behind the songs, will also become available at the site. The song “Shatter the Madness” will be released after the Republican National Convention and before the Democratic National Convention.

“Allen and I are great friends and frequent writing partners,” Douglas said. “Lately we found ourselves talking more and more about world events, the current state of politics in America and fear for the future our children and grandchildren face. Then we started writing about it, and the songs on Shatter the Madness are what came out.”

“As songwriters, by nature Tom and I do a lot of observing—we observe people, we observe what’s going on in the world and what we have observed is a lot of fear and panic,” Shamblin said. “We think people are losing hope so what we want to do with these songs is try to give them back some of that hope they’ve lost.”
