Nashville, TN --- Asheville Forest Music, a division of Crossroads Entertainment & Marketing, has announced the signing of songwriters, Jamie Johnson andSusanne Mumpower-Johnson (aka: Iodine).

Spouses Jamie and Susanne are each accomplished writers and entertainers. Jamie is a member of the multi-award-winning bluegrass band, The Grascals(which earlier this year released the album LIFE FINDS A WAY on Mountain Home Records, a division of Crossroads Entertainment).

An artist in her own right, Susanne has shared her original tunes at Nashville’s famed Bluebird Café, known for showcasing the cream of Nashville’s songwriting crop.

Together, the powerhouse duo has penned tunes including the powerful "I am Strong," (co-written with Jenee Fleenor), which was written for the children of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

"We are very excited to have this new relationship with Jamie and Susanne,” says AFM executive Chris White. “Not only are they proven talents, they are continuing the process of honing their skills daily.  We know they will give Kim plenty of great songs to pitch and we look forward to being part of the success of this incredible duo."
