I hope this finds you all doing well. March is blowing in, and we are gearing up for an exciting Spring.
Here’s the latest:
We’re preparing for two special autism events in April. Morgan and I have also been busy cooking up a little surprise. More to come later…
When I was a young girl, growing up in Alabama, I remember listening to songs and reading the credits on the back of album covers. I wanted to know how you got there from where I was. What I would have given to sit down with someone who was writing those songs.
The Country Music Hall of Fame has been doing the Words and Music Program in the schools for 31 years. I’ve had the privilege of volunteering in their program for over 10 years now, creating songs from students’ lyrics, and answering their questions about songwriting. At a sessions a couple of weeks ago, a young girl in the back asked me why I give my time. I asked if there was anyone in the group who thought they might want to be a songwriter one day. Three hands went up. That’s why! I’ve seen lots of hands go up over the years, and I like to think some of them will go on to pen tomorrow’s masterpieces. A BIG thank you to CMHOF from a little Alabama girl.
