Their melodies stick in our head. Their words hook into our soul. Their creations become the soundtrack of our lives. Yet few of us know their names.
This is a story about one of music’s most important—and virtually unknown forces: The Nashville songwriter.
We tell the ups and downs of writing songs for a living. From the struggles of paying your dues, to the wonderment of putting the words to music that affect millions. We uncover the inspiration behind some of the biggest hits in country, rock, and pop. And of course, we pay homage to the greats who built the trunk of the tree that has turned Nashville into the songwriting center of the world.
Packed full of raw and stripped-down performances, this film will give you a new appreciation of how we all connect through songs and why they are more important than ever.
