Neil Thrasher

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Neil Thrasher has been surrounded by music his whole life. Influenced by both sides of his family, Neil grew up watching his father perform professionally as part of The Thrasher Brothers. It was only natural that Neil would do the same.


After several years of recording his own music and touring, other artists began recording songs he had written. As fate would have it, it was then that Neil would devote his career to being a full time songwriter and eventually being named “2004 ASCAP’s Songwriter Of The Year.”


Thrasher’s songs have been recorded by some of music’s most successful acts including: Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, Randy Houser, Ronnie Dunn, Tyler Farr, Reba McEntire, and many others.


In 2013 Neil was honored with ASCAP Country Song Of The Year for “How Country Feels” by Randy Houser. When not writing, producing or singing on the next project you will most likely find Neil out on the golf course, hunting or spending time with his wife Lana and two daughters Ali and Emma Grace.
