Songwriter Session: Mike Reid
Please note, this event has expired.
Following an All-Pro football career with the Cincinnati Bengals in the 1970s, songwriter Mike Reid became a force as dominant in country music as he had been on the gridiron. Reid wrote a string of #1 hits for Ronnie Milsap including “Lost in the Fifties Tonight (In the Still of the Night),” “She Keeps the Home Fires Burning,” and the 1984 Grammy-winning Best Country Song, “Stranger in My House.” His other #1 songs include, “Everywhere” (Tim McGraw), “Forever’s as Far as I’ll Go” (Alabama), “In This Life” (Collin Raye), “To Be Loved by You” (Wynonna), and “Walk on Faith,” which he recorded himself. Reid also co-wrote the Bonnie Raitt hit “I Can’t Make You Love Me.” His songs have been recorded by the Judds, Willie Nelson, the Oak Ridge Boys, Tanya Tucker, Conway Twitty, and Don Williams. Presented by SunTrust. Ford Theater.
