Nashville is a song town, but there’s a lot more to making it in Music City than spending some quality time with your guitar, pen and paper. Ashley Gorley, the writer of more than 30 #1 country hits, leads a panel of hit songwriters signed to his Tape Room Music roster. These top country hitmakers will tell their stories and reveal the secrets of writing for the country market, expound on the pleasures and politics of co-writing, and explain how songwriters and publishers work together to get their music to the masses. You’ll come away with a notebook full of practical tips on breaking into the multifaceted country music world.
