Zac Maloy



Hit songwriter and one-time frontman of post-grunge rockers the Nixons, Zac Maloy recently celebrated his first No. 1 song with “Temporary Home,” recorded and co-written by Carrie Underwood. The single, which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart on April 10, 2010, marks Maloy’s successful expansion into the country format from his previous extensive work in the pop/rock genre. He’s also had songs recorded by artists including David Cook, DAUGHTRY, Plain White T’s, Jason Castro and Bowling for Soup, among many others. Recently, we caught up with Maloy at his Nashville studio and chatted about American Idol as a portal for songwriter discovery, the art of collaboration, the importance of tenacity in ambition and his recent—and enthusiastic—decision to make Music City his new home.
