Josh Jenkins & Jeff Hyde




Jeff Hyde learned music through the local Opry's and family. Armed with a college education and looking "to fish for sharks", he made his way to Nashville, TN. For a time, Jeff kept odd jobs to keep up with his songwriting. Then one day, Eric Church invited him to sit in and then eventually stick around for as long as he'd like. The rest is history. Jeff is a member of Eric's infamous band and has co-written some of Eric's biggest hits. "Kill A Word", "Record Year", and "Springsteen" to name a few. Then he's also penned other songs for Bobby Bare, George Strait, Charlie Worsham, Luke Bryan, Nikki Lane, and more. In 2017, Jeff released a compilation of unreleased songs that have been held has a song-writers treasure trove called, Norman Rockwell World.  For everything about Jeff and to download Norman Rockwell World, But first, we have Josh Jenkins, front man for Green River Ordinance.  He was singing Merle Haggard songs, that he barely understood as a kid in local Opry's, and at 15 joined a local band. In a matter of a few years, he was opening for some of his favorite bands, traveling the country in a van, and Green River Ordinance was on it's way to chart hitting success. But through time, learning, and growing the band and Josh decided to switch gears and focus on individual projects and family. Josh is a writer for SmackSongs in Nashville, TN where he's landed cuts with Jordan Davis, Muscadine Bloodline, Walker Hayes, Randy Houser, and more. Recently Josh released "Perfect Mess", produced by Eric Masse. "Perfect Mess" is setting the tone for Josh's up coming major release, Everyday All Over Again, as a Keane/Coldplay pop influence with songwriting that will take you on a adventure through stories of heart ache, conversations with Johnny Cash, and midnight train rides through the city.  For all things Josh, visit
