Songwriting has been a part of my life since I was a teen. It's another way I tap into different aspects of my creativity. The combination of words, melody, and chords is fascinating and sometimes frustrating! But there's nothing like hearing an audience sing along with a song you have written.
I have been lucky to have songs recorded by Terri Clark, Francis Black, Sara Evans, Christy Cox, Thomm Jutz, and of course, the SteelDrivers. I still try to write at least a couple days a week, mostly with some of my favorite co-writers.
