39 year old San Antonio, Texan, Mickey Jack Cones has produced, engineered, mixed, written songs for, sang on, and/or played on over 50 major artist's albums, since his arrival in Nashville, in 1996.
...
Plus...his work with Motley Crue, Aerosmith/Steven Tyler, Exile, Ludacris, Lionel Richie and Buck Cherry, which explains why Cones is considered to be one of the "new breed" of producer/engineers largely responsible for that "80s Rock" influence, that ignited country music into the stratosphere.
...
It's been said that most great vocal producers are great singers and Mickey Jack Cones is certainly one of them.
...
Cones got bit by the songwriting bug when he was about 13 and by the time he was 15 he was the lead singer, lead guitarist & band leader in his first club band "Hired Guns". Later, he left college/University of Texas in San Antonio to become the lead singer, guitarist & band leader for "Rhythm of The Road". A well-known band in the south Texas dance hall circuit (1993-96)
Mickey moved to Nashville, in pursuit of a music business degree and graduated from Belmont's Music Business program in 1998, with an emphasis in studio production, which landed him an interning gig with his first connection in Nashville, Barry Beckett.
...
While in school, between his 2 waiter gigs at Planet Hollywood & Outback Steak House and a full course load, Mickey had no choice but to complete some of Belmont's required studio engineering projects out of his dorm room. After graduating, Cones went to work as a staff engineer for David Malloy's publishing company (studio) and eventually became know as "David's Guy".
...
Through a friend, classmate and employee of Ladd Management (April Taylor) who also loaned Mickey the money for his first hard disc recorder, Cones got the opportunity to write the music for NEMESIS, a Pop/Rock act, who was signed to CURB, LA.
...
Mickey signed a production deal with CURB to produce NEMESIS and that landed Mickey his first pub deal with EMI, in 99'.

Around 2000, David Malloy asked Mickey to work with him and Kenny Beard, on a Jeff Bates' session for RCA.
...
"Derek Bason was scheduled to engineer and couldn't make it so I was brought in to engineer the vocals."The Jeff Bates project propelled Mickey as a vocal producer, which aside from having great ears, also stemmed from being a great singer, I'm sure.
During that period, David Malloy built a studio in his home, Mickey partnered with David in the recording equipment and they worked on a multitude of projects together.
...
In 2001, Mickey got his first opportunity to produce a major artist, an old friend from the Texas club circuit, David Kersh, on CURB.
...
Although the album did not get released, it was during the project that Cones came to the conclusion that, the roll of an engineer was not hands-on enough for him, so he set his sights on producing.
Although his producing career was just taking off, every musician's dream is to hear what they sound like in a concert arena and Mickey was no exception. He had been writing with Julie Roberts while they were both signed at EMI. So, when she landed her record deal and asked Mickey to go on the road as her band leader (background vocals and guitar), he jumped at the chance. Mickey stayed with Julie for the next 2 years and his dream did come true, on the Rascall Flatts tour.
...
When Mickey came off the road and back to Nashville in 2004, Kenny Beard immediately hired Mickey to engineer and sing background vocals on Trace Adkins' next album, Dangerous Man.

That album created a different label of interest for Mickey. Famed rock producer Marti Frederiksen, who today is partners with David Malloy and Mickey at Westwood Studios, asked Mickey to engineer Buck Cherry and Aerosmith, which ultimately led to the Steven Tyler and Mickey's "HUGE" production with Kenny Beard on Kiss You All Over with EXILE & Trace Adkins.

Tony continued to call Mickey for vocals and engineering for Reba, Heidi Newfield and other projects including Lionel Richie's Tuskegee album.
...
Tony & Mickey co-produced sides on Trace Adkins and then Tony asked Mickey to produce Joe Nichols with him.

But thank GOD, what could have been an awkward situation wasn't, because Tony, being the experienced, kind hearted and understanding man that he is, so graciously handed over the reins, with his blessing and said Mickey, you HAVE to do this."
