We hope you’ll consider taking your songwriting to the next level. This intensive retreat can only support a small number of participants. This ensures quality co-writing time. We’re going to work hard most of this weekend, but there will be breaks for fun as well! We’d love to have some of our SongtownUSA friends come to Music City for this one-of-a-kind creative event.
Write on! ~ Marty Dodson & Clay Mills
