Marcus Spencer Hummon (born December 28, 1960 in Washington, DC) is an American country music artist. He graduated from Williams College. After several years of playing in various bands, he eventually found his way to Nashville, Tennessee, where he was signed to a songwriting contract, and subsequently a record deal with Columbia Records, which released his debut album All in Good Time in 1995 and produced a No. 73 single on the Hot Country Songs charts in "God's Country." Hummon has also released several studio albums on his own label, Velvet Armadillo.
Hummon has also co-written songs for many country music artists, including Top 40 singles for Tim McGraw, Wynonna Judd, and Alabama, as well as three Number One country hits: "Cowboy Take Me Away" by the Dixie Chicks, "Born to Fly" by Sara Evans, and "Bless the Broken Road" by Rascal Flatts. "Bless the Broken Road" had previously been a minor chart single in 1998 for Melodie Crittenden as well. In 2005, Rascal Flatts' version earned Hummon a Grammy Award for Best Country Song. Hummon also co-produced Last of the Good Guys, the debut album for the country group One Flew South, in addition to co-writing several of the songs on it.
