Aimee Mayo


Aimee Mayo grew up in Gadsden, Alabama. As a teen, Aimee was surrounded by music. As of 2008, Mayo’s songs have spent twenty-five weeks in the #1 spot on the Billboard charts, and albums featuring her songs have sold over 135 million units worldwide.

Mayo was named BMI Songwriter of the Year in 2000. "Amazed," recorded by Lonestar that same year, is her most popular song to date. In 2004 it garnered a 5 Millionaire award from BMI, vaulting it into the top 125 songs in the BMI catalog out of 6.5 million works. “Amazed” also won ACM (Academy of Country Music) Song of the Year, BMI Song of the Year, NSAI Song of the Year and was nominated for a Grammy. “Amazed” crossed over to the pop charts and spent two weeks at the top of the Hot 100, making it the first country song to accomplish such a feat since 1983.

Mayo's song “This One’s for the Girls,” recorded by Martina McBride, stayed at #1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart for eleven weeks in addition to reaching number three on the country chart. Mayo has received over a dozen BMI Country awards along with BMI Pop Awards for “Amazed” and “This One’s For the Girls.”

Mayo co-wrote the song "Wheel of the World" on Carrie Underwood’s second album with husband Chris Lindsey. The album title “Carnival Ride” was chosen by Underwood from the lyrics of “Wheel of the World.”

Aimee is an aspiring author and was a judge on the CMT television series, "Can You Duet". Aimee has written hits for artists including Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Sara Evans, Kellie Pickler, and Adam Lambert.
