Songwriter Aimee Mayo Launches Kickstarter Campaign To Publish Autobiography

Aimee Mayo

Songwriter Aimee Mayo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to help publish her autobiography, Talking To The Sky. The book covers a lifetime of experiences including memories of Aimee’s late father, hit songwriter Danny Mayo, an abusive marriage, honest revelations of insecurities and a triumphant story of working through obstacles to create opportunities.

The writer of songs like “Amazed,” “This One’s For the Girls,” and “Wheel of the World,” Mayo has offered incentives like autographing copies of the book, writing a personal wedding song, or appearing in a live performance as enticements for bidders, and artists including Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Keith Urban and others have participated in the Kickstarter campaign with video and social media endorsements or in other ways.

“This is one of the best biographies I’ve ever read, period!” said Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) Executive Director Bart Herbison of the project. “It is so good I reached out to Aimee personally to see if she would let me be part of this journey.”

“This is my life’s work. There is nothing I’ve ever created that means more to me than this book,” said Mayo. “I want to share my life with people because there is a path to overcoming difficulties found in my story. It took me 13 years to finish and I decided to self-publish the book because I can’t wait to share it with the world.”
