About Phillip White:

The road to songwriter 'stardom' can take various forms and for Phillip White it seemingly took the 'short route.' Born in Nashville but raised in a town nearby, the writer of Reba McEntire's "I'm A Survivor" was hired as a manager of a publishing company after he graduated high school. Inspired by Paul Overstreet to write, it wasn't long before Phillip was writing with his idol. Shortly after that, Phillip was writing with renowned songwriter Roger Murrah, who eventually offered Phillip a songwriting staff job in the mid 1990s. It has been White's time as a writer with Murrah Music Group that saw him bloom into a 'known' commodity.

In 2000, a song that Phillip wrote with D. Vincent Williams was placed on Rascal Flatts' debut self-titled record. That song, "I'm Movin' On," became the group's first No. 1, and eventually won both writers Academy of Country Music Song Of The Year accolades. Among the songs from Phillip's catalog are Neal McCoy's Top 10 hit "Billy's Got His Beer Goggles On," Reba's Top 10 hit "He Gets That From Me," Blake Shelton's Top 10 hit "Nobody But Me," Trent Willmon's hit "On Again Tonight," Scotty McCreery's single "The Trouble With Girls," and cuts on records by artists like Gary Allan, Scotty McCreery, Neal Coty, George Strait, Blackhawk, The Blue Dogs, Chris LeDoux, Brian McComas, Rachel Proctor and Kevin Sharp, Tanya Tucker, Chalee Tennison and Kenny Rogers. With a steady pen writing top hits, Phillip White should continue to write hits for years to come.
