“How does a songwriter who had big success in the 80’s still have hit singles in 2018? Just ask Ed Hill. Ed’s family upbringing, his unmatched work ethic, and his love of songwriting paint a picture of success in a business that some call “the most difficult way to make a living on planet earth”. It’s all in this book. No amount of success, or lack of, altered his focus as a family man and true friend. If you aspire to be a successful songwriter and have a long career, Ed’s career is one to emulate.”

“As I began to read Ed’s story I found it truly mattering to me. Not just the music-industry part, which I expected to care the most about, but his personal life growing up and beyond. The way Ed weaves the story behind each song is fascinating and a genuine pleasure for the reader. This book is worth your time and one that I believe will also matter to you.”

“I love the book and the stand-up guy it portrays. I love the warmth and humanity in its pages. I love the sense of integrity, dignity, honesty and the little moments of

self-deprecating humor. I felt like I was sitting down with a great, story-telling pal. I really didn’t want it to end.”


Troy Tomlinson

President /CEO Sony / ATV Nashville


“I’ve known Ed for almost three decades and I’ve always known him to be a straight

shooter. Never has that been more evident than within these pages. He honestly and

transparently helps the reader navigate the choppy waters of life and the music business with the same storytelling ease that makes him a respected hit
