Gary Burr: After years of hard work and hard writing, he got his first break in 1982 with Juice Newton’s “Love’s Been a Little Bit Hard on Me.”  With a hit under his belt he started writing in earnest, getting cuts from such talents as the Oak Ridge Boys and Conway Twitty. After a brief time on a solo career and album, Gary took over for Vince Gill as the lead-singer for the band Pure Prairie League. 

In the late 80’s, feeling that he’d done all he can from Connecticut, Gary decided to move to Nashville, and a better move is hard to make.  It didn’t take long for Gary to become one of Country Music’s most sought-after writers, having hits with Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Patty Loveless, Garth Brooks, and many more. 
Burr has been awarded ‘Songwriter of the Year’ on three separate occasions by three different organizations: Billboard, Nashville Songwriter’s Association International, and ASCAP and has written 14 Number One songs. In 2005 Gary was inducted into the NSAI Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, one of the highest honors that a songwriter can ever achieve. 

With his successes in Country Music, Gary’s ventures in Pop have been equally stellar. He has written and performed with Ringo Starr, appearing on VH1’s ‘Storytellers’ series and many talk shows. He had a world-wide hit with Ricky Martin’s duet with Christina Aguilera “Nobody Wants to be Lonely,” granting him his first #1 on the Latin charts. Gary garnered a #1 on the pop charts with his collaboration on the platinum selling single “Before Your Love” by American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson, and a #1 selling single with American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken’s song “This Is The Night.” Gary wrote and toured with Pop writing legend Carole King performing all over the world as part of her Living Room Tour. 

Gary’s latest adventure could be the wildest of all: forming the trio Blue Sky Riders with Kenny Loggins and Nashville singer/songwriter Georgia Middleman. Their first CD, Finally Home, was co-produced by the band with Peter Asher and released in January of 2013, with a second CD currently in production.
Georgia Middleman: 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" and "Things I Didn't Know I Knew." Georgia is currently in the studio working on her fourth solo record.

When not performing solo, Georgia is one third of the trio, Blue Sky Riders, along with Gary Burr and Kenny Loggins.  Blue Sky Riders released their debut CD, “Finally Home,” in January of 2013. Georgia is also one half of the husband & wife duo, Middleman Burr
Randy Hart: First and always a musician, Aircast Custom Music’s Creative Service Director, Randy Hart has been involved in both the music and the business for over 30 years. Diverse musical bases have been covered by Randy – from performing with artists such as Iggy Pop, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson – all of whom illustrate the genre extremes of a long list. Recording credits also include such variety – from the Allman Brothers ("Brothers Of The Road"/Arista) to soundtrack work on the David Lynch classic movie, “Eraserhead” and two Grammy® award winners – the legendary Roger Miller and Steve Wariner, most recently with a piano performance on the 2010 Grammy® winning (Best Country Instrumental) "Producer's Medley" by Wariner. 

The business side has taken him to the helm of 2 multi-national music publishing companies – Famous Music and BMG Music Publishing, as VP of both of these publisher’s operations in their Nashville offices working with songwriter luminaries such as Steve Dorff (2018 Songwriter Hall of Fame inductee), Gary Burr (Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame), Victoria Shaw ("The River" - Garth Brooks) and Hugh Prestwood ("The Song Remembers When" - Trisha Yearwood).

Hart also serves as the staff pianist for The Grand Ole Opry.
