"You can't jump a jet plane like you can a freight train (Gordon Lightfoot)"
Reviewing Hash's, "The Last Waltz," for AmericanSongwriter.com, award-winning singer-songwriter Amy Speace ("The Weight Of The World") said, "You listen to this kind of song and you just have a permanent smile on your face. Because it's one of those songs that's like a great discovery. It's a total standard."
Other top Nashville songwriters have had a similar reaction to Hash's songs. When Hall of Fame writer Tony Arata ("The Dance") heard Hash's "Dynamite Shack," he exclaimed, "I love this song!" And Rich Fagan ("Sold! The Grundy County Auction Incident") called it "a masterpiece." Hall of Fame writer Jeffrey Steele ("The Cowboy In Me" ) has been spotted in a Nashville audience, yelling and spelling out H-I-L-L-B-I-L-L-Y to Hash's crowd pleaser, "The H Word."
Music Connection Magazine ranked Hash's songs among their Top 25 new music finds of 2012.
