Publisher's Summary

Songwriter, signed recording artist and veteran radio broadcaster Ty Hager interviewed hit country songwriters for his radio show "Behind the Hits", which aired on radio stations in the U.S. and world-wide on the American Forces Radio Network in 2011. Now he's compiled those interviews for Nashville Songsmiths - In-Depth Interviews with #1 Country Songwriters. You'll hear the stories behind such phenomenal hits as "The Dance," "I Swear," "Independence Day," and many, many more. You'll also get insights into the music business and country songwriting - the harsh realities of rejection and the rewards of perseverance in the highly competitive world of Music Row, where success is fleeting and quickly forgotten, and where "you're only as good as your next hit." This audio version features the complete interviews with the songwriters themselves! For more about "Nashville Songsmiths" (including links to the digital and paperback versions), as well as links to Ty's music, videos, and novel, just go to nashvillesongsmiths.weebly.com/

Great Songwriter Stories!

These interviews were very enjoyable listening! I always love hearing the story behind the song, and the struggles songwriters are willing to go through for the love of their craft!

My only criticism is that there was only one female interview.

Loved loved loved listening to this book!

What a joy and informative experience this book was. I hated to see it end. I would love if Ty would continue these kind of interviews with some of the even older song writers and performers. I don't think I can get enough. Thanks Ty!
