Georgia Middleman’s love affair with music is evident in every song she sings. Her songs blend passion and insight into the human condition with powerful melodies in a combination that hearkens to the timelessness of classic American popular music.
One of Nashville’s most accomplished singer/songwriters, Georgia has had songs recorded by Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, Joe Nichols, Maia Sharp and Sheila E., among many others. In 2010, Keith Urban took “I’m In,” which she co-wrote with Radney Foster, to the top of the country charts. Those who have seen her live, though, can attest that there is real magic in her own renditions of her songs as, she wraps one of music’s most expressive voices around lovingly crafted glimpses into life and love at their most compelling.
Born and raised in Texas, Georgia earned a degree in acting from NYU and played the city’s clubs until a visit to Nashville. “That’s when everything changed,” she says. “I fell in love with this town because it was a community of writers.”
She earned a publishing deal with Polygram and then a record deal with Giant Records. Her solo records include “Endless Possibilities” on Giant Records and the independent “Unchanged,” “Things I Didn’t Know I Knew,” and “Plum.” Georgia just recently released on her fifth solo record, an acoustic collection of her most requested original songs called “Requests.”
When not performing solo, Georgia is one third of the trio, Blue Sky Riders, along with Gary Burr and Kenny Loggins. Blue Sky Riders have recorded two cds on their own label, “Finally Home” and “Why Not.”
Georgia is also one half of the husband & wife duo, Middleman Burr.
