Bonnie Elizabeth Bishop started her career as a country rock singer-songwriter from Texas, who grew up in Houston, Texas and later moved to Nashville, Tennessee. After arriving in Nashville, Bishop began writing and performing. She eventually received awards and recognition for her songwriting. In 2012, Bishop's idol Bonnie Raitt recorded her song "Not Cause I Wanted To." Bishop co-wrote this single with NRBQ guitarist "Big Al" Anderson and it was selected as a New York Times Best Song of 2012. "Not Cause I Wanted To" won Bishop her first Grammy in 2013 when Raitt's Slipstream won Best Americana Album that year. Raitt has even covered Bishop's own "Undone", saying in an interview with Billboard Magazine, "I love her work. Isn't she incredible?"Another song Bishop wrote entitled "The Best Songs Come From Broken Hearts" made its television debut in 2013 on ABC's hit show Nashville. One of the show’s stars Rayna James (Connie Britton) performed the song at her comeback show on the legendary stage at the Grand Ole Opry.After a long career of touring and performing bar gigs, Bishop took a break. She went to graduate school at Sewanee – University of the South for creative writing as a way to refresh herself after many years on the road. While studying at Sewanee, award-winning producer David Cobb (Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson) called her after hearing some demos. Convinced Bishop should be singing soul music, Cobb asked Bishop for her original songs. From this list, Bishop’s newest record "Ain’t Who I Was" was born and will be released via Thirty Tigers on May 27.
