Acclaimed musician and songwriter Bryan White will perform Saturday, June 3 at Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in downtown Franklin.
White has charted 17 singles on Billboard’s Country Charts, had six number one singles, two platinum records and two gold records.
He has garnered several awards, including a Grammy, a CMA Horizon Award, and an ACM Top Male Vocalist award among them. Probably one of the most recognizable songs he wrote was Shania Twain’s “From this Moment On.” He he joined forces with Twain and together they took “From This Moment On” all the way up to number four on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart.
He has also helped several other artists climb the charts; Sawyer Brown and Diamond Rio both got in the top five with songs co-written by White and Wynonna, Joe Diffie, LeAnn Rimes and Lila McCann all recorded songs he co-wrote. The accolades led him to various TV appearances such as “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night With David Letterman,” NBC’s “The Today Show,” and “CBS This Morning.” People Magazine also named him one of their “fifty most beautiful people.”
White took some time off to get away from the craziness of the music business and to start a family.
“After a decade of building my career and being on the road so much, I was spent, mentally and physically,” he says. “I knew, I needed to get away and take some time to breathe and do some of the other things I had always dreamed of.” He did just that by marrying the beautiful actress Erika Page (One Life To Live) and bringing sons Justin and Jackson into the world. When asked how his life has changed during his break from the industry, White responds, “I found my true identity, not only as an artist and a songwriter, but as a human being. I realize now that life is an incredible gift and it’s meant to be lived on purpose. Music is a gift and a great vehicle but it’s really about what happens beyond the music for me. What kind of legacy did I leave as a husband, as a father, and a friend?”
