“Write a Hit” is a song by The Jimmys from the album Gotta Have It produced by Tony Braunagel. The song features Marcia Ball and was co-written by Jimmy Voegeli, Marcia Ball and Tony Braunagel and recorded in Milwaukee at Makin’ Sausage Music.
“Marcia stopped by while on tour to sing with me,“ says Jimmy. “Some of the video was shot while on our annual ‘The Jimmys Winter Caribbean Getaway’ in Jamaica in March where she was our special guest. The idea for the song ‘Write a Hit’ came from a long conversation with Fred Young of The Kentucky Headhunters on their tour bus after a festival. Fred said he lost everything in a divorce and needed to “write a hit to get that back.” I made him sign a paper towel with that lyric on it and said I’d write a song someday for him. I did, and when I called him to thank him he said, “Sorry it was all a lie, I’ve had the same wife for decades!”
The Jimmys are a 7-piece Blues Party on wheels from Madison, Wi featuring a 3-piece horn section, gritty guitar drivin’ B-3 and piano blues.
