MCHM, often referred to as “the most famous people you’ve never heard of,” features Nashville’s biggest writers performing their hits as arranged for a symphony by award-winning studio musician and arranger Charlie Judge.

“Nashville is the epicenter of great songwriting, so the top songwriters in Nashville really are the best in the business,” says Judge. “It is my incredibly good fortune to have the opportunity to work with these talented writers, both as a keyboardist in the studio recording their hits, and as an arranger re-casting their songs for orchestra.”
