Ross Ellis Presents “Ross Writes”

Born and raised in the small town of Monterey, Louisiana, Ross Ellis moved to Nashville after graduating college. The Sony Nashville recording artist has been writing songs since he arrived in Music City, having penned tracks for some of country music’s biggest acts, including country superstar Tim McGraw. To showcase his expansive catalog of songs and offer fans some at home entertainment while we shelter in place to fight COVID-19, he launched “Ross Writes” on April 9. Performing daily at 6 pm CT on Facebook and Instagram Live, Ellis shares a different song he’s written during each performance. To check out past episodes and watch new ones, visit @RossEllisMusic onInstagram or Facebook.

“This is something I’d been thinking about for a while, but when this coronavirus mess broke out, I thought it’d be a great way to connect with fans until we can all be together again,” shares the man The Boot calls an “artist to watch.”  “I have written so many songs over the years since moving to Nashville. This is a great way to both showcase my ‘day job’ as a writer and highlight some of the incredible songwriters I go to work with every day.”

In the middle of recording his debut album for Sony Music Nashville when the “safer at home” order was released, the singer/songwriter has already notched 17 performances and shows no signs of stopping the daily sessions any time soon. 

“I have enough songs to take us all the way through 2025 if we have to,” Ellis laughs. “These live sessions have been great though…seeing the comments. Getting feedback from fans in real time will definitely help us decided what makes this album and what doesn’t!”
