Gary Burr

From his first pop hit, “Love’s Been a Little Bit Hard On Me” by Juice Newton in the early 80’s, to his recent induction into the Country Music Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, Gary Burr has been one of the most successful and honored songwriters in history.

33 top forty hits, 24 top tens, 14 number ones, Gary’s career has spanned pop, country…  even Latin hits such as Ricky Martin and Christina Aguilera’s smash duet “Nobody Wants To Be Lonely.” He has been honored with Songwriter of the Year awards by Billboard Magazine, ASCAP, and the Nashville Songwriter’s Association of America.

One of the rare breed who writes hits alone as well as co-writing, Gary is a favorite collaborator of a collection of writing icons such as Carole King, Richard Marx, Don Schlitz, Victoria Shaw, Kenny Loggins … even Ringo Starr!

Over the years Gary has kept his joy of music alive by keeping his hand in as many musical adventures as he can… lead singer in the seminal country-rock group Pure Prairie League, guitarist/bassist for Carole King on her widely-acclaimed “Living Room Tour,” guitarist/vocalist for Ringo Starr in his band “The Roundheads” and thousands of other projects. “For me the next song is never far from my mind. Every day I believe that THIS could be the day I hear or say the phrase or hum the melody that will be the best song I’ve ever written!”

Gary has topped the charts in three decades and his melodic command and lyrical mastery continue to amaze and touch the hearts of fans all over the world.
