About the Film

We all hum their tunes. We know their words by heart. And we tell the story of our own lives through their art. Yet, few of us know their names. This is a film about one of the most important and unknown forces in music: The Nashville Songwriter. We will tell their story in a way it has never been told. We will document their struggles. From paying their dues to working through their creative process. We will celebrate their success. From the eureka moment of uncovering that musical gem that turns into a hit to receiving a Grammy and hearing how their words and music change people’s lives. But most of all, we pay tribute to the most valuable resource in the music industry today.

"...takes you into the world of Americana, folk, rock, pop and beyond. It’s more than fair to make the assumption there’s only one original songwriting capital in the world, and it is Nashville."

"There is nowhere else like it in the world, this thing that we call Nashville and nothing, not tornadoes, not cross-pollination with other sounds and genres, not the passing of particular generations is going to stop it or even slow it down. It all begins with a song but what comes next is simply magical."
