Award-Winning Songwriters Hit the Puckett’s Stage Saturday


If you’re looking for something fun to do this weekend, look no further than the stage at Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in downtown Franklin. Two award-winning songwriters – Steve Williams and Deborah Allen –  will take the stage Saturday.

Steve Williams’ songs are featured on 3 gold records. “Where Have I Been All My Life” recorded by George Strait has been heralded as one of the most poignant songs of Strait’s career and is featured on “Twang” (2009 release). “Redneck Yacht Club” (recorded by Craig Morgan), went to #1 in 2005 and became one of the most downloaded songs of the year. ASCAP called it “The summer song of the year.” Buddy Jewell’s debut album also went gold and features Williams’ song, “O’Reilly Luck”. His Grammy-nominated song, “I Get To” (Oak Ridge Boys 2012) flew to #1 on the Christian Music Charts years earlier for Blue County and has been recorded by several artists, including Jeff & Sherrie Easter. And on the opposite side of the songwriting spectrum, “I Didn’t”, recorded by Trick Pony, Kristin Chenoweth and numerous others, is a hilarious look into a dysfunctional relationship. As a performer, Steve has worked with Kenny Chesney, Tanya Tucker. Visit for more on his music and career.

Deborah Allen is a twice Grammy-nominated recording artist, multi-million airplay award winning songwriter, producer and international entertainer. Deborah’s signature hit song, “Baby I Lied” broke all musical barriers charting in the Billboard Pop, AC and Country charts. Her songwriting ability is legendary with six #1 songs and cuts by such artists as LeAnn Rimes, Brooks and Dunn, George Jones, Tammy Wynette, Conway Twitty, Tanya Tucker, Fleetwood Mac, Dianna Ross and many more.

Steve Allen and Deborah Allen play at Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant in Franklin Saturday, May 13th at 8:30pm. There is a $12 cover charge.
