Hit Songwriter Marty Dodson



"Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" is one of Ten "Songs I Wish I Had Written" to be honored at the NSAI Annual Award Banquet in October. One of the ten songs will be awarded the "Song of the Year" award. The song is also among ASCAP's most played songs of the year and is nominated for ASCAP's "Song of the Year". "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right" was certified Gold as a digital single, signifying downloads of over 500,000 copies of the song.

Marty was invited to play the June Jam Songwriter Festival with Randy Owen, Teddy Gentry, and Jeff Cook from the group "Alabama".  The show was a fundraiser for "Big Oak Ranch" children's home and also featured Roger Cook, Jennifer Hanson, Mark Nesler, and Dave Turnbull.  It was exciting to be on stage with "Alabama" since they were the first act Marty ever saw in concert. 

Marty Dodson and co-writer, Jason Matthews celebrate their first #1 single with Billy Currington's "Must Be Doin' Somethin' Right".  The song stayed atop Billboard's Country Chart for two weeks and was on the charts for over 8 months!!  Billy performed the song on "The Tonight Show" in January.  It has also been featured in a Hallmark greeting card that will actually play the song when it is opened.  Look for the card at your favorite Hallmark store.
