It was a fabulous night for country music sensation Miranda Lambert who took home four wins Wednesday at the Country Music Association Awards. The importance of “home” was similarly feted last night as Lambert’s moving performance in “The House That Built Me” helped the tune earn Song of the Year and Video of the Year honors. The song, which attests to the powerfully enduring influence of one’s childhood home, was co-written by Tom Douglas and Allen Shamblin. We were lucky enough to snag an interview with Douglas just prior to awards night.
Look for Douglas’ reflections on the song, and information about his early career in commercial real estate sales, in the February 2011 issue REALTOR® Magazine.
