Tim Nichols

Welcome to the official website of Nashville Songwriter Hall of Fame member, Grammy, CMA and ACM award-winning songwriter, Tim Nichols

So many people have experienced senseless loss over the past several years.  From the loyal country music fans watching Jason Aldean on the streets of Las Vegas

to numerous schools struck by unexplainable violence, the tragedy seems never ending.  This song I wrote with Jim Beavers is in tribute to so many lives lost, and

is dedicated to the survivors.  Families, friends and entire communities are mourning special individuals that were taken too soon.  I've put together some images of the recent victims and students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to go along with our song.  May it honor their spirits, and lift up those left behind.  

From the famed Bluebird Cafe, Tim shares the story of Live Like You Were Dying for the documentary, For the Love of Music:  The Story of Nashville, featured on ABC.
