Charlie and Dana Hunt Black


Dana and Charlie Black first met when they were both staff songwriters in Nashville in the mid-90’s. They have been writing, recording, and performing together ever since. Dana has written a number of songs recorded by George Strait including two of his biggest hits – WRITE THIS DOWN and CHECK YES OR NO, both of which went to Number 1 and went on to become ASCAP Song of The Year. She also helped launch Gary Allan’s career writing his first giant hit IT WOULD BE YOU. Among the many artists who have recorded Dana’s songs are Alan Jackson and Suzy Bogguss. Charlie has had songs recorded by a long list of singers from Reba McEntire and Anne Murray to Phil Vassar and Alan Jackson. He has been nominated for two Grammys for A LITTLE GOOD NEWS recorded by Anne Murray and COME NEXT MONDAY by KT Oslin. He is a member of the Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame. Between them, Dana and Charlie have had hundreds of their songs recorded, some 18 of which have reached Number 1. They even wrote a Christmas song for George Strait called I KNOW WHAT I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS. Since 2004 Dana and Charlie have called Port Saint Joe, Florida their home. Their latest album is THE THING TO DO, and they have a new collection of songs in the works.
