Description

March 6, 2010 - Roger Murrah was elected to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 on the strength of country chart-toppers such as “Don’t Rock the Jukebox,” “High Cotton,” “I’m in a Hurry (and Don’t Know Why),” “If I Could Make a Living,” “Life’ s Highway,” and many others. The Alabama native moved to Nashville in 1972 and scored his first #1 with Mel Tillis’s “Southern Rains” in 1980. A year later Murrah provided jazz singer Al Jarreau with the international pop hit “We’re in This Love Together.” Also a successful publisher, Murrah is senior vice president of Bug Music. This interview is illustrated with vintage photos, film footage, and recordings.
