Jimmy Webb - the only artist to ever receive Grammy awards for music, lyrics and orchestration - has written landmark songs such as "Didn't We," "Worst That Could Happen," All I Know" and "The Moon's A Harsh Mistress" that have been recorded by major recording artists from Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand to Reba McEntire, Linda Ronstadt and R.E.M.
Jimmy Webb is a member of the NAPM Songwriter's Hall of Fame, Nashville Songwriter's Hall of Fame, and he is the 2003 recipient of the prestigious Johnny Mercer Award. The National Academy of Songwriters gave Jimmy their Lifetime Achievement Award and "By The Time I Get to Phoenix" has been the 3rd most performed song in the last 50 years. Frank Sinatra, Glenn Campell, Joan Baez, Art Garfunkel, The Righteous Brothers and Judy Collins are just a few who have recorded his music. Frank Sinatra declared "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" as "the greatest torch song ever written," and said he enjoyed singing Jimmy Webb tunes because "he has been blessed with the emotions and artistic talent of the great lyricists."
