Mason Douglas has covered a lot of bases of the music business with his journey in Nashville. Currently in his 8th year as staff writer for the boutique publishing company, Judy Harris Music, he has navigated the jungle of record deals, the grind of national touring, the chaos of promotion and social networking…and has still not run back home screaming to his hometown of Tucson, Arizona yet. Mason is a Top 40 Hit Songwriter, thanks to “American Beauty” with the Lost Trailers (cowritten with Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins) and is excited for that next one to “hit” while writing with Nashville’s new generation of artists, such as HARDY, Old Dominion, the Swon Brothers, Dylan Scott, Tenille Townes, and Sweet Tea Trio, as well as superstars Kid Rock and Sam Hunt. As an artist, he’s opened for Chris Stapleton, Vince Gill, Jewel, Trace Adkins, Charlie Worsham, Dustin Lynch, Brothers Osborne, Striking Matches and even rock acts such as 3 Doors Down and They Might Be Giants.
In his spare time, Mason has authored two books on Nashville pop-culture, “Now You Know Nashville” and "Secret Nashville", which feature the cool stories about Nashville that you never knew about: where songs were written, studio stories, celebrity houses and grave sites, foodie items, and over 500 locations in town that you can’t miss. "Now You Know Nashville" was a #1 Amazon Bestseller in Tennessee Travel Guides and was featured on the hit show “Rectify” on the Sundance channel. He frequently gives tours and speaks at conventions as a featured songwriter and historian about the historical importance of these locations, as well.
Mason has spent a number of years as a mentor with NSAI, the Nashville Songwriters Association International, and loves to give back the experience that he has garnered in his time – the focus on song crafting and breaking a song down is a highlight but he also conveys the necessity of networking and finding one’s own path in Nashville. He has presented and led workshops at various songwriting festivals and seminars, such as NSAI’s Advanced Song Camp, Spring Training, TSAI, and the Martha’s Vineyard Songwriting Festival.
And Mason also has some fun acting, having been in a number of “Nashville” episodes (most notably as the “Beverly Sound Guy”), as well as featured in commercials for Ram, Nissan, Dayton Tires, Twice Daily, Tractor Supply, and UpDesk, to name a few.
