Hit songwriter, artist and producer, Regie Hamm has penned over 20 #1 hits, many of them in Christian music.
He hit the Billboard Top 20 as an artist in 2003, and later went on to see his solo-written song “Time of My Life” (sung by 2008 American Idol winner David Cook) stay at #1 for 4 months on the pop charts, making it the longest running number one pop song by a Nashville based songwriter in history – beating out Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” by one week.
Oprah called it the “official theme song of 2008 Summer Olympics,” and David Cook announced that with the song, Regie had hit a chord with people. But the real story of Regie’s personal journey has had all the twists, turns, and drama of a Hollywood movie.
He was raised in Pentecostal churches, tent revivals, and all night singings. But rose from those humble beginnings to experience unprecedented success in the music industry, writing 16 number one hits from 1994 to 2000, with Grammy and Dove nominations, and winning SESAC’s Songwriter of the Year award four times.
