Varble has written many great songs over the course of his career, including co-writing “A Little More Country Than That,” which was recorded by Easton Corbin and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country chart and also was nominated for the Country Music Association’s “Song of the Year.” He’s also co-written the hits “Sounds Like Life to Me” recorded by Darryl Worley and the No. 1 song “Waitin’ On a Woman” recorded by Brad Paisley. Lee has written numerous Top 20 Billboard songs, including multiple No. 1 hits. Among them are “19 Somethin’” recorded by Mark Wills, “Lucky Man” recorded by Montgomery Gentry and “I Need You” recorded by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, which was also nominated for a Grammy.

Each month is hosted by singer/songwriters Brian McComas who wrote and sang “I Could Never Love You Enough” and Aaron Benward of Blue County who wrote and sang “That’s Cool.” Another fun aspect of Nashville Unplugged is “Songs from a Hat” where guests who arrive between 7:15 p.m. and 8 p.m. can make up a title to a song and place the suggestion in a hat. The songwriters will pick one title from that hat and then pen a song throughout the course of the evening, to be performed at the end.
