Grammy award-winning songwriters and husband-wife duo Anna Wilson and Monty Powell, formerly of Nashville, have formed a Salt Lake City-based band with fellow members Nathan Chappell (drums) and another pair of husband-wife musical collaborators, Austin and Kassie Weyand, called Troubadour 77. Collectively, Wilson and Powell have written a dozen#1 songs, countless album cuts featured on over 70 million records worldwide, are award-winning
SESAC and ASCAP songwriters for collaborations with Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and others and penned the international theme song for Habitat for Humanity. Powell is a highly decorated songwriter, having been named SESAC’s Songwriter of the Year, is a recipient of the CMA Triple Play Award for penning three #1 songs in one year with Keith Urban (Sweet Thing, Kiss a Girl, ‘Til Summer Comes Around), received the CMA Producer of the Year award and earned Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award nominations for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture for a song he co-wrote with Keith Urban called “For You” that pays tribute to the United States Special Operations Forces and is the end track in the movie “Act of Valor." Wilson is a critically acclaimed artist who has reached the #1 spot on the iTunes chart for her critically acclaimed Countrypolitan Duets album where she performs duets with Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Rogers, Larry Carlton, Ray Price, Connie Smith and more. Together, they have co-produced a number of Americana and country artists including Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, The Zac Brown Band and more. As they drive forward with Troubadour 77, they are writing and performing new music in an effort to carry the torch of the '70s Laurel Canyon SoCal sound reminiscent of the classic singer-songwriters
that helped define their generation. Troubadour 77 is setting out to find “Troubelievers” one song at a time.
