Texas-born hit songwriter Bill Shore had his first songs recorded by music legends such as Billy Walker, Claude King, Mel Street and David Houston. Those early recordings, and mentoring by Songwriter Hall of Fame member “Doodle” Owens, inspired Bill to work harder, which led to his first top 20 recording by the great Tammy Wynette: “You Still Get To Me In My Dreams.”
Through the ups and downs of the business, Bill received encouragement from great artists and writers such as Johnny Russell, Conway Twitty and Merle Haggard to push on. That paid off in #1 songs by Charley Pride (“Every Heart Should Have One”), George Strait (“I’d Like To Have That One Back”), Sawyer Brown’s “Trouble On The Line” and other Top 10 hits by Garth Brooks (“Wild Horses”) and “Lover’s Moon” by Marie Bottrell (RCA Canada). He's also had multiple songs in the Top 20. In all, Bill's songs have resulted in over 40 million sales.
Bill has had over 200 songs recorded by artists such as Porter Waggoner, Chris LeDoux, Vern Gosdin, Moe Bandy, Helen Cornelius, Stealing Angels, as well as many other major and independent American and international artists. He has received multiple BMI Million Performance Achievement Citations and BMI awards.
His songs have also been used in many television shows and motion pictures.
