ED HILL, who has had No. 1 cuts with Faith Hill (no relation) (“It Matters To Me”), Tracy Lawrence (“Runnin’ Behind”), Reba McEntire (“The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter”) and John Michael Montgomery (“Be My Baby Tonight”), doesn’t discount inspiration, but he hasn’t got the time to wait for it to arrive.
“I have nothing against artists that have to be inspired to write a song, but a professional songwriter doesn’t wait to get inspired,” Hill said. “Everyday I wake up, I’m inspired. I want to hone my craft and be a professional. I want to write something worthy every time I write and that’s my inspiration. I don’t always have great ideas, but I’m always inspired. Songwriting is what I do. It’s how I support my family, and those who are waiting for inspiration aren’t living my life.”
