Kye Fleming's songwriting helped define an era of country music through radio-friendly material recorded by Barbara Mandrell, Ronnie Milsap, and Sylvia, among many others artists of the 1970s and 1980s. Fleming grew up in a Navy family and toured as a folk artist before turning to professional songwriting. Following a move to Nashville in 1977, she teamed up with songwriter Dennis Morgan for major cuts like Mandrell's "I Was Country When Country Wasn't Cool," "In Times Like These," "Sleeping Single in a Double Bed" and "Years," as well as Milsap's "Smoky Mountain Rain" and "I Wouldn't Have Missed It for the World." Morgan and Fleming also co-wrote Sylvia's No. 1 hit, "Nobody," which received an ACM nomination for Song of the Year. Fleming earned multiple Songwriter of the Year distinctions from BMI (1981-1983) and NSAI (1981-1982). She continued to land singles like Amy Grant's "What About the Love," Michael Johnson's "Give Me Wings," Willie Nelson's "There You Are," Charley Pride's "Roll on Mississippi" and Steve Wariner's "All Roads Lead to You." She was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009 and participated in the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's Poets & Prophets series in 2012.
