We are gearing up for a big show in just over a week. And it’s bringing some of Nashville’s biggest songwriters to Augusta! You don’t want to miss out on The KICKS 99 Songwriter Series on March 8th at the Columbia County Performing Arts Center. Get details on the show HERE. And on the list of songwriters, we’ve got the Warren Brothers. This duo has written a lot of songs you know and love!

Who Are The Warren Brothers?

Brad and Brett Warren are two brothers who make up the American songwriting duo known as the Warren Brothers. The two are originally from Tampa, Florida. And Tampa is where the duo got started as recording artists.

The brothers moved to Nashville in 1995, and two years later they signed a record deal with RCA Records. Together, they made 3 albums with BNA Records, along with an independent release on 429 Records.

During their time as recording artists, the two toured as an opening act for Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and others. And their time with Tim McGraw paid off. Tim was very interested in their songwriting.  Throughout the years, he has recorded over 20 songs they’ve written, inlcuding “If You’re Reading This,” “Felt Good On My Lips,” and “Highway Don’t Care.”

Not only have the pair been recording artists, but they also served as celebrity judges on the second season of “Nashville Star.” They even had their own reality series on CMT called “Barely Famous, The Warren Brothers.”

The two are known for their great sense of humor and have been part time radio personalities and had a few film cameos. In addition to all of that, they were nominated for CMA Duo of the Year for 6 years in a row.  They also have a GRAMMY nomination and CMA song of the year nomination too.

Songs Written By The Warren Brothers

While Tim McGraw has recorded many of their songs, their list of artists recording their songs is extensive. One that’s recently been highlighted due to Toby Keith’s passing is “Red Solo Cup.”  They also wrote Faith Hill’s “The Lucky One” and Keith Urban’s “Little Bit Of Everything.”

They’ve had songs recorded by some of our favorite Georgia artists too!  Lady A, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, and Billy Currington have all recorded songs written by this brother duo.

Here are some other songs they’ve written:

  • "Feel That Fire" - Dierks Bentley

    This song was co-written by the Warren Brothers, Dierks Bentley, and Brett Beavers (Bentley’s producer). The song was released in September 2008. It would be the first single from the album with the same name which would come out in 2009. “Feel That Fire” would be Dierks Bentley’s sixth number one on the Billboard Hot 100 Country Songs Chart in February 2009.


  • "Lights Come On" - Jason Aldean

    This song wound up being recorded by Jason Aldean, but according to The Boot, it wasn’t originally intended for him.  The song was written by Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard alongside Jordan Schmidt, Jimmy Robbins, and the Warren Brothers. The collaboration was a result of double booking writing appointments, and “Lights Come On” was the result. The song would be released as the lead single on Jason’s 2016 album, They Don’t Know.

  • "Sober Saturday Night" - Chris Young

    Chris Young collaborated with the Warren Brothers to write this one that he would go on to record with Vince Gill. They started out hoping to write a happy song, but by the end of their writing session, “Sober Saturday Night” was born. The song was released in 2016 and the last single from Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over album.

  • "Every Time I Hear That Song" - Blake Shelton

    Chris Lindsey, Aimee Mayo, and the Warren Brothers wrote this song that would be recorded by Blake Shelton. The song was on Blake’s If I’m Honest album that was released in 2016. It reeached number one on the Country Airplay chart in July 2017, and marked Blake’s 24th number one.
