Tony Arata, J. Fred Knoblock at Swallow at the Hollow

TONY ARATA was born in Savannah, Georgia and grew up on nearby Tybee Island. While studying for a journalism degree from Georgia Southern University, he began performing his original songs in local bands. In 1986, he and wife Jaymi moved to Nashville where his unique, soulful style began to get the attention of people like Allen Reynolds and Garth Brooks. Garth to date has recorded seven of Tony’s songs, and “The Dance” won song of the year at The Academy of Country Music and received both a Country Music Association and a Grammy nomination, as well as a most performed song in Radio and Records Magazine. He has also had No. 1 records with “Here I Am” for Patty Loveless, “I’m Holding My Own” for Lee Roy Parnell, and “Dreaming With My Eyes Open" for Clay Walker. Other artists who have recorded his songs include Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Delbert McClinton, Don Williams, Reba McEntire, Suzy Bogguss, and Hal Ketchum. Tony has also done three solo albums featuring new songs, covers, and guest appearances by many of Nashville’s finest musicians as well as folks who have recorded his songs, including Garth, Patty, and Lee Roy. Brooks himself has said the following about Arata: "One of my favorite songwriters has to be Tony Arata. He’s a cat who doesn’t care about appearances. He doesn’t care about money. He cares about his children, his wife, and his music. That’s neat."

What do Ray Charles, Faith Hill, George Strait, Trisha Yearwood, Kenny Rogers, Delbert McClinton, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Gregg Allman, Ruth Brown, John Anderson, Etta James and Levon Helms have in common? They've all recorded songs written by Mississippi native, J Fred Knobloch. J Fred has been involved with over 400 recordings as a songwriter, studio musician and singer by artists whose styles range from Country to R&B to Jazz, Disco and Pop with several of his tunes appearing in movies and on television. On the heels of his success as a pop artist for Scotti Bros. Records in 1980 through 82, J Fred relocated to Nashville from Los Angeles in January 1983 to continue his career on Music Row--or Tin Pan Valley as he likes to call it. His most recent chart successes were Faith Hill's "If My Heart Had Wings" and George Strait's "Meanwhile". A self-published songwriter since 1997, he still works as a session musician and vocalist as well as performing 30 to 40 dates a year on the road. Along with Don Schlitz and Thom Schuyler, J Fred originated the 'In The Round' format at the world famous Bluebird Café here in Nashville. This has become the standard presentation for songwriter nights all across the country over the past two decades. In fact, the creation of this format for songwriters led to Fred, Thom and Don being consulted before the successful Nashville series was launched on ABC television.
