David Banning began writing songs in his early twenties shortly after listening to his first Merle Haggard record. The passion for crafting songs that was realized through Haggard’s music quickly started consuming David’s life. Several years later he began attending monthly Dallas Songwriter Association meetings in his hometown of Dallas, TX where he met future friends and songwriters such as, Rory Feek of country duo Joey+Rory, and Austin Cunningham. David spent his nights enveloped in lyric and melody, mastering the craft of songwriting. Eventually songwriting forced David to begin making frequent trips to Nashville, TN with his good friend Rory Feek. Not long after he started writing in Nashville, David received his first big break. Songwriting legend Harlan Howard took interest in his writing and offered him several single song contracts. In the following years he split his time between his home in Texas, and Nashville constantly writing and pursuing his dream. Finally in 2004, David got his first cut and gold record, when Chris Cagle recorded and had a top 40 hit with a song they co-wrote called, “I’d Be Lying”. This song was the catalyst for more songwriting success in the years to come.
Throughout his career David has had the privilege of writing with artists and songwriters such as, Paul Overstreet, Rob Crosby, Joey+Rory, Chris Cagle, Austin Cunningham, and Don Poythress just to name a few. Notable successes include songs cut by; Paul Overtreet “I Think She Only Loves Me For My Willie”, Joey+Rory “Baby I’ll Come Back To You”, “The Horse Nobody Could Ride”, “Buy Our CD”, "He's A Cowboy" and Steve Helms’, “Nowhere But Texas”, which was a top 10 on the Texas Country Music Charts and played after home-game wins during the Texas Rangers’ 2010-2011 MLB seasons, playoff run, and World Series appearances. Today, David Banning resides in Colleyville, TX with his wife Tammy, where they raised their three children, Bradley, Braxton, and Brielle. He continues to travel to Nashville to write. His most recent cut was on a song called, “Don't Mess With Texas" by Bradley Banning (his son) which is currently climbing the Texas charts.
