Biography

Byron Gallimore was born in Puryear, Tennessee. He earned an engineering degree from Murray State University.[2] He played in rock 'n' roll and country cover bands since the age of 11 and that led him to songwriting and recording.

In 1980 he won the Music City Song Festival songwriting contest with the single, "No Ordinary Woman," which was released that year on the Little Giant record label,[3] peaking at number 93 on the Billboard country singles charts.[4][5][6] He moved to Nashville in 1986.

Gallimore has produced 12 of Tim McGraw’s albums, 11 of which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.[7] He has produced more than 50 No. 1 Country Radio Singles.

He won a Grammy Award for Best Country Album in 1999 for Faith Hill’s album Breathe.[8] Gallimore also produced the single "Breathe" from the album. He also produced the song Stay which won a Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals Grammy for Sugarland in 2008.[9] Billboard named him Producer of the Year in 2000, 2001 and 2002.[10]

In addition to Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Sugarland, Gallimore has also produced Lee Ann Womack, Brooks & Dunn, Martina McBride,[11] Jo Dee Messina, Jessica Andrews, Randy Travis, Phil Vassar, Terri Clark, and American Idol runner-up Lauren Alaina.[12][13]

Gallimore launched a new record label in 2012 called Streamsound Records with music industry veteran Jim Wilkes.[14] The roster includes Jaida Dreyer, who released her debut album I am Jaida Dreyer in early 2013, Austin Webb and Dakota Bradley.[15] Streamsound Records is based in Nashville, TN.[16]
