Tennessee Whiskey: The Dean Dillon Story

One of those guys that you may not know his name, but you know A LOT of his songs!

Like “Marina Del Rey“, “Nobody In His Right Mind Would’ve Left Her“, or “The Chair“?

As they say in the documentary, Dean is one of the “top 1%” of songwriters in Nashville.  The first time I heard his name when he was making a run at being an artist himself, back in the 90’s.  I had no idea he was the guy behind so many of George Strait’s biggest hits.

This documentary dives into his life as a songwriter, and his partnerships with Strait, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith and others.

If you like behind-the-scenes Country music type things, you should check this out.  I saw it on Amazon Prime, but it’s likely available other places too.

  1. I saw your movie “Tennessee Whiskey” the other night ! I was BLOWN away by your TALENT. I didn’t know you wrote all those Great Hit Songs! It is truly remarkable how you come up with theses lyrics and melodies. I’ve been driving a truck for over 40 years, and my XM radio is constantly keeping me company. Playing old country songs…I just can’t handle this new stuff. Thank God for Willie’s Roadhouse, and Prime Country. Keep up the Good Work. I’m looking forward to hearing some more of your Great Songs. George Strait is one of my Favorite Artists, and you are my Favorite Song Writer. I Wish you good health and many more years of turning out Great Songs !!!
