Ross Copperman Chats About ‘Somewhere There’s A Light On’ EP

Ross Copperman has made a name for himself as one of Nashville’s go-to songwriters and after years of what he describes as “helping others find their voice,” he is now “relearning how to find [his] own voice again” as he steps back into the artist role.

The four-time BMI Songwriter of the Year originally began his musical journey as an artist signed to a U.K. label, but found his home for the past 12 years in penning songs for top artists including Kenny Chesney, Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini, and Blake Shelton, among countless others. Over the years he has racked up No. 1 hits and a long list of awards and nominations, but now Copperman is stepping out from behind the song to let his own voice be heard.

“It’s been very cathartic for me to make this,” says Copperman of his newly released EP Somewhere There’s A Light On.“ I came to Nashville as an artist and now it’s very full circle for me…It feels so good to do it. It’s making me a better writer because sometimes you can just weave in and out of songwriting and you start losing your love of it…This has really helped me to stay inspired and excited.”
