You have likely heard Helen Darling’s writing before reading it here in NextTribe (such as her honest, funny contribution this week “Hiding Botox from My Husband…And Justifying it to Myself.” Helen is best known as the writer for the crossover #1 hit song “Bring On The Rain” recorded by Jo Dee Messina and Tim McGraw, which was subsequently nominated for a Grammy. Darling started her career as a Chicago jingle singer on television and radio commercials for such clients as McDonald’s and 7-up. Her voice sang the familiar query, “Have you driven a Ford lately?” After moving to Nashville in 1993, Darling began singing back-up for such artists as Garth Brooks. On her first album, Brooks, Delbert McClinton and Lee Roy Parnell made cameo appearances. In 1998 Darling moved to Austin to pursue family and songwriting. She currently divides her time between Montana and Texas with her husband Dennis and their two sons.
