What a fantastic episode today...a chat with CCMA Hall of Fame Member ... Patricia Conroy. To start with,...I am a big fan of Patricia's music prior to any of my own involvement in the industry so was a thrill to chat with her in this episode. Here is a bit of a bio from Patricias site and I will include a few links to some of the great things we chatted about below.
Throughout her musical career, songwriting has been an integral a part of Patricia's success. In her career, she has released six albums, one compilation album and released 25 singles, including the RPM Country Tracks number one singles, "Somebody's Leavin'" and "What Else Can I Do".

From her debut album, "Blue Angel", where she wrote many of the tracks, it became apparent songwriting was in her blood, crafting hits like "Direction of Love", "Keep Me Rockin", "Bad Day for Trains", "I Don’t Wanna Be the One" and many more.

She has been the recipient of many awards in Canada, including CCMA Rising Star (1990), CCMA Female Artist of the Year (1994) and CCMA Album of the Year (1993), just to name a few.

Patricia is now focused on songwriting for other artists, having her songs recorded by some of Canada's brightest country stars, like: Meghan Patrick, Leaving Thomas, Jake Mathews, Rivertown Saints, Michelle Wright, Jimmy Rankin, Emerson Drive, Bobby Wills, Chad Brownlee, Kansas Stone, Smalltown Pistols, Jessica Mitchell, Aaron Pritchett, Beverley Mahood, Leah Daniels and Tebey, among others. She also has landed cuts with US artists Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire, scoring a U.S. and Canadian number 1 hit with Lady A’s “Champagne Night”.

In 2021, the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) awarded Patricia Conroy with Songwriter of the Year and inducted her into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame.

Patricia resides in Nashville, Tennessee.
