One of a clutch of songwriters with this name in the record business, this James Crawford was credited with helping to write four of the songs on the debut album by Tennessee heavy metal band Every Mother's Nightmare in 1990.

Crawford" credited on Bessie Smith's recording of "Hustlin' Dan" in 1930.
