Back in 2000, Trick Pony exploded right out of the starting gate with their highly acclaimed and platinum selling self-titled CD.  Huge hits co-written by Dean like “Pour Me” and the Grammy nominated “Just What I Do” established Ira Dean as not only the wild man with headlights in his chrome stand-up bass, but as a brand new singer songwriting force and studio musician in country music. The trio won both the American Music Awards top new artist award and the Country Music Association artist of the year award. Ira co-wrote seven of the cuts on their second CD, On A Mission which brought five more Academy of Country Music nominations including “Album of the Year” and “Vocal Group of the Year”.  Now a few years and more than 50 cuts later, Ira is happy being “a power of 1” .
Ira has had songs recorded by Rascal Flatts, Joe Nichols, Chris Young, Trace Adkins, Colt ford, ex- pony Heidi Newfield, Jake Owen, Gary Allan, including his hit single “Feeling Like That”, and 7 songs cut by Montgomery Gentry, including their hit single “One in Every Crowd” and "I'll Keep the Kids" to name a few.  In 2012 Ira released his first solo single titled "Somethin' bout a Sunday" the video was a top 10 video for CMT and GAC.  In 2015 Ira Dean released his long overdue single "Nothin' to Do Round Here”. In 2017 the Academy Awards recognized Ira Dean for his work with Edwin McCain for writing and producing Edwin's song "I'm Back" which was an Oscar pick for best original music score in a film. *The organizer reserves the right to substitute songwriters in the event of an emergency.  The December Greenville songwriter guest will be announced at the September show with tickets opening for sale at that time.
