First and foremost, Alli Patton is a chicken wing connoisseur. She is a writer, second. The Birmingham, Alabama-native is a lover of music and the written word and finds great joy in combining the two. She is a journalist with eight years of experience working for various publications around the world. Prior to her journalism career, she worked in the music industry as a Digital Media Specialist, a role that has informed her work as a writer today. A Dolly Parton junkie and lover of all things with a twang, Patton can be found spinning old records and trying to teach her dog, Zeppelin, how to two step. You can find her scribblings on country, rock, and everything in between at American Songwriter, Holler, and The Independent.
