Number One Hit “Better As A Memory” Celebrated

Kenny Chesney celebrated with the writers of the number one hit “Better As A Memory” on Monday night at the BMI building in Nashville:

Kenny Chesney made a special trip from his tropical island retreat to congratulate his former publicist, Holly Gleason, for her part in writing his recent hit, “Better as a Memory.” The celebration was held Monday (Nov. 24) at the BMI building in Nashville.

Gleason co-wrote the song — her first ever recorded — under the pseudonym “Lady Goodman,” and neither Chesney nor his producer, Buddy Cannon, was aware of Gleason’s role until well after they cut the song.

Sharing the spotlight with Gleason was her co-writer, Travis Hill, who also used a nom de plume, “Scooter Carusoe.” Earlier this month, he won the song of the year award for the composition from SESAC, which, like BMI, is a performance rights organization.

It wasn’t until the Nashville Songwriters Association International listed “Better as a Memory” as one of the organization’s 2008 “Songs I Wish I’d Written” and Gleason came forward to accept the honor that her contribution became public.

“I grew up writing a lot of poetry in the margins of my notebook, ” Gleason told a group of reporters who met with her before the celebration began. Despite this inclination and her work as a music critic, Gleason said she had been reluctant to try her hand at songwriting. “I didn’t want to be one of those people whose ego is bigger than their talent.”
