Songwriter Craig Wiseman celebrated his 20th No. 1 hit with Canadian rock band Three Days Grace‘s single, “Chalk Outline.” Wiseman, along with family and friends, gathered at the band’s recent show at Nashville’s Exit/In to commemorate his achievement.

Wiseman won a Grammy for Best Country Song in 2005 for Tim McGraw‘s No. 1 hit “Live Like You Were Dying.” He also earned the Country Music Association’s Song of the Year trophy for the same song in 2004. In 2009, Wiseman received the Nashville Songwriters Association’s highest honor, Songwriter of the Decade.

Wiseman has had over 100 singles thus far in his career and more than 300 cuts.
