Dave Pahanish is an artist, a three time #1 hit Billboard Country songwriter and he’s a producer. Dave penned Tobey Keith’s “American Ride”, Jimmy Wayne’s “Do You Believe Me Now?” and Keith Urban’s “Without You”.
Urban chose the song “Without You” because of how closely the lyrics fit in with his own life stating, "It's the most autobiographical song I never wrote.” Pahanish wrote the song after meeting his wife’s family for the first time without realizing any similarities to Urban’s life. The song became Urban's 12th No. 1 single.
Notable cuts by Dave include Tim McGraw "THe One That Got Away" and “Right Back Atcha Babe,” #12 Billboard single “I Will” for Jimmy Wayne, Emily Wests “Completely Yours” which Dave coproduced and Collin Raye’s “Divine Everlasting Love”. He is veteran of the Country Throwdown Tour with Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Little Big Town, Jamie Johnson, Eric Paslay, Montgomery Gentry, Eli Young Band and many others.
"In the House" at the Grinder House is broadcast live on WFMC Jams every Friday from 6-8pm central.
