SongwritingWith:Soldiers brings together professional songwriters who are masters in the art of collaboration. They bring years of experience to this work. Many of them have been nominated and won music industry awards, written #1 songs, or had their songs on albums that have sold millions of copies.

Below are some of the songwriters who have written in SW:S program and the list continues to grow:

Marshall Altman, Pryor Baird, Bonnie Bishop, Michael Bradford, Gary Burr, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Jay Clementi, Ashley Cleveland, Erin Enderlin, David Forman, Radney Foster, Mary Gauthier, James House, Will Kimbrough, JD Martin, Georgia Middleman, Danny Myrick, Mark Nesler, Gary Nicholson, Terry Radigan, Darrell Scott, Maia Sharp, Darden Smith, Trent Willmon and Amy Speace.

Collaborative songwriting is powerful and demanding. At our retreats, songwriters take the participants’ words, stories and phrases, and together craft the lyrics.

Melodies are created on the spot. The participants want their story told. The writers want to tell the truth. The resulting songs are collaborations in the purest sense.

After the retreats, all the songs are registered with ASCAP with the participants as co-writers of their songs.
