According to USAToday, his start in Nashville came as a songwriter for Cowboy Jack Clement's Jack Music. "Don and I were both working at Jack Music before our careers took off," said songwriter Bob McDill. “One night, when the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was in town, Don said, ‘Let’s go backstage and play them some songs.'"
