What's a country singer if he or she
doesn't have great songs to record? Jeffrey Steele has had MANY of his hits recorded by some of country music artists.
If every time you read CD or video credits,
it seems to like almost every charting song is written by Jeffrey Steele... be assured - you're NOT dreaming! This talented
songwriter had his songs recorded by the likes of: Trace Adkins ("I'm Tryin'" AND "Chrome"), Faith Hill ("When the Lights
Go Down"), Tim McGraw ("The Cowboy in Me"), Montgomery Gentry ("Speed," "My Town," AND "Hell Yeah"), Rascal Flatts ("These
Days"), LeAnn Rimes ("Big Deal"), Anthony Smith ("If That Ain't Country"), Mark Wills ("And the Crowd Goes Wild").
originally from Burbank, California, grew up listening to the likes of Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson and learning to
play guitar in his father's steel shop. His older siblings helped broaden his musical appreciation - soon he was listening
to the great sounds of Motown and the popular band The Beatles.
In his late teens, Jeffrey began playing in various bands
and also picked up songwriting; he soon became an in-demand studio session singer! Then in 1988, he met with two brothers,
Larry and Cary Park, and drummer Hugh Wright, and together, the foursome became Boy Howdy. The band scored hits with "of "A
Cowboy's Born With a Broken Heart," "She'd Give Anything to Fall in Love" and "They Don’t Make 'Em Like That Anymore"
- all of which Jeffrey wrote. In 1990, Boy Howdy took home the trophy for being named ACM's Band of the Year. They
also brought their music onto the Grand Ole Opry stage before ending their eight-year run.
Jeffrey then tried his hand
as a solo artist, signing with Sony. He released the rock-tinged single "Something in the Water" but soon found himself parting
ways with the label. Nevertheless, more and more artists recorded Jeffrey's songs for their albums, some of them becoming
mega-hits!! He's won numerous awards for his work, including Songwriter of the Year many times from various organizations.
Also, BMI recently awarded him for having 20 million airplays!!
Jeffrey continues to record his own albums and tour with
his band. Music is the means by which Jeffrey communicates, and he will continue to find every way to bring his music to more
and more people.
