Grammy-nominated songwriter, independent artist, publisher and West Palm Beach native, Jamie Floyd, has been chasing her dreams in Nashville for the last 20 years. She’s written songs recorded by Ronnie Dunn, Ashley Monroe, Miranda Lambert, Hayden Panettiere, Kellie Picker, Lucie Silvas and Brian McKnight, among others. Her critically acclaimed EP Sunshine & Rainbows features "The Blade," a song that was also recorded by Ashley Monroe and Miranda Lambert. Their version earned Floyd her first Grammy nomination. “The Blade” was also named one of "The Best Songs of 2015” by The New York Times, Billboard Magazine and NPR. Jamie also performed the song during her network television debut as a finalist on USA Network’s first season of Real Country, and her rendition was met with a standing ovation by Shania Twain! Jamie is currently working on writing all the original music for an upcoming Broadway musical while touring the U.S. beginning in the spring of 2019!
Additionally, her songwriting success has translated to film and television over the last several years, where her work has appeared in hit shows Nashville (ABC), Finding Carter (MTV), The Client List (Lifetime) and Beauty & The Beast (CW Network). She also penned original music for the TV movie Manson’s Lost Girls (Lifetime) and the finale and additional music performed by Brian McKnight in Dolly Parton's Christmas movie, A Country Christmas Story (Lifetime/Hallmark).
Most recently, Floyd, along with John Martin, appeared in, co-wrote and recorded the entire 12-song official major motion picture soundtrack for Burt Reynolds’ final film, The Last Movie Star, starring Reynolds, Ariel Winter and Chevy Chase. The soundtrack features a guest appearance by Willie Nelson and was released nationwide, along with the movie on March 30, 2018. The Last Movie Star had its world premier at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival and is distributed by the renowned A24 (responsible for the success of Lady Bird and The Disaster Artist). In addition, "Yet To Come" (co-written by Jamie) that closes the final scene of the movie, was awarded "Best Original Song In A Feature Film" by the Nashville Film Festival.
Jamie is also featured in the new critically acclaimed music documentary The Last Songwriter alongside Garth Brooks, Jason Isbell, Allen Shamblin, Tony Arata, Tom Douglas and Emmylou Harris.
