What Could You Learn From a Nashville Hit Songwriter?

More good news about the Indie Buzz Bootcamp music conference, coming June 20-22 to St. Louis, MO.

Our friend RyLee Madison, who is bringing her renowned "Behind the Song Cafe" to the Bootcamp during the Saturday night dinner, was able to recruit hit songwriter Wil Nance to join her.

Wil recently hit the top of the Billboard charts with his Brad Paisley hit "She's Everything." He also penned Paisley's song "Hard to Say Hello." Wil received a BMI award for "Round About Way," a #1 hit single for George Strait which appeared on a few Strait albums that racked up more than seven million sales and counting. He also received a BMI Award for his Joe Nichols single "Cool to Be a Fool."

In addition to performing as part of the "Behind the Song Cafe," Wil will hang around that weekend and be available for songwriting mentoring. I also hope to find a slot where he can present a bonus session on songwriting.

You may not aspire to be a country music songwriter, but no matter what career path you take with your music, you can always benefit from knowing how to write stronger songs that connect with your audience.

And this is on top of the already full schedule of events at the Indie Buzz Bootcamp.

Registrations for the June Bootcamp have really picked up in recent weeks, and I expect that trend to continue throughout May. So if you want to be one of the exclusive group of 150 who attends, there's no time like the present.
