Today on The Troubadour I visit with Hays, KS native and K-State alum, turned Nashville transplant, Blake Chaffin. Soon after graduating college Blake made the journey to Music City USA and started piecing together what has today become not only a admirable career as a songwriter, but also a successful career as an entrepreneur with a business he built from the ground up. As a songwriter, Blake gutted it out in Nashville while honing his craft leading him to eventually secure a multi year publishing. He has went on to write with established and well known songwriters like Mark D. Sanders and Robert Earl Keen, as well as successful artists like Brantley Gilbert, Dustin Lynch and Logan Mize. Blake can easily be described as a prolific songwriter, penning over 120 new songs in 2017 alone. In this interview Blake exhibits just how important developing relationships with other people in the industry is and can be. Blake’s work ethic and approach to the craft of songwriting is something to be respected and should serve as an example for aspiring writers looking to succeed in a sea of competition.
