The Producer's Chair featuring Dann Huff
According to Billboard’s ‘Country Producer of the Decade’ and last year’s ACM ‘Producer of the Year’ Dann Huff, we are now officially in a singles market, which may account for, the number of clients on his plate. Talk about a balancing act … Huff’s current client roster includes Keith Urban on Capitol, Billy Currington and Jennifer Nettles on Mercury-UMG, Hunter Hayes/Atlantic-Warner, Thompson Square on Stoney Creek, Brantley Gilbert and Thomas Rhett on Valory Music, The Band Perry, Brett Young, Seth Alley and Danielle Bradbery on Universal-Republic, and on Scott Borchetta’s new label Dot Records, Maddie and Tae’s debut album, and Steven Tyler’s already released first single “Love is Your Name”, written by Eric Pasley and Lindsey Lee for Tyler’s debut solo album.
Looking back … Huff’s move into production, after his remarkable body of session work, which includes Barbra Streisand, Kenny Loggins, Reba McEntire, Celine Dion, DC Talk, Shania Twain, Michael Bolton, Luther Vandross, Peter Cetera, Donna Summer, Rod Stewart, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Amy Grant, Fine Young Cannibals, Barry Manilow, The Temptations, Chaka Khan, O’Jays, Smokey Robinson, Clint Black, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Natalie Cole, Gladis Knight, Neville Brothers, Dusty Springfield, Rick Springfield, Olivia Newton-John, Toby Keith, Billy Joel, Joe Cocker, Bryan Ferry, Peter Wolf, Martina McBride, Chicago, Wynonna, Glen Campbell, Paula Abdul, Tammy Wynette, Mariah Carey, Merle Haggard, Bob Seger, Boz Scaggs and countless others, was the result of friendly persuasion by Mutt Lange, who told Huff, “You are a producer in guitarist’s clothes.”
Some of Dann’s other ‘cherished awards’ include: 2010 ACM Producer of the Year, 2006 ACM Producer of the Year, 2006 MUSIC ROW AWARDS Producer of the Year, 2004 CMA Musician of the Year and 2001 CMA Musician of the Year, not to mention, a ‘boat-load’ of nominations.
