I'm currently writing & recording a rock record with Greg Baker, Kyle Caswell & Ethan Caswell.

He says his true love of the art most definitely flows in the acoustic, singer/songwriter world.

Mangum's most recently started co-writing with one of Nashville's finest up & coming singer/songwriters, Travis Jerome.

Travis won a BMI award for song of the year & most played song of the year. He wrote a song called, "What We Ain't Got" & Jake Owen picked it up.
