Joe Leathers


A native of Memphis, Joe’s “Memphis Thang” influences are diverse, and that diversity is evident in his songwriting. An award-winning songwriter, some of Joe’s hits include, “Save The Roses” by Lee Brice, “Tough” by Craig Morgan, “Where I’m From” by Jason Michael Carroll, Tim McGraw’s “Still” and Steve Holy’s “Love Don’t Run.” Joe also landed the title cut to the Kenny Chesney Platinum release “Hemingway’s Whiskey,” and Clay Walker’s “Jesse James.” The critically acclaimed “Nashville Without You” is on Tim McGraw’s Two Lanes of Freedom album and Thompson Square and Trace Adkins released “I Can’t Outrun You.” Among the artists who have recorded Joe’s songs include Trace Adkins, Clay Walker, Lee Brice, Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, Trailer Choir, Adam Gregory, The Davisson Brothers, Halfway to Hazard, Rio Grande, Lisa Brokop, Brian Davis, Thompson Square, Kellie Pickler, Jerrod Niemann, Randy Houser, Gary Allan, Ruston Kelly, Grace Askew, and others. Joe’s approach to life and the craft of songwriting can be summed up by his own words, “swing hard, you might hit it.” Joe writes for Curb|Word Music Publishing in Nashville.
