Online Family Program: Songwriting 101: Kacey Musgraves Style
*The event has already taken place on this date: Wed, 08/05/2020
Nashville songwriter Harlan Howard described country music as “three chords and the truth,” and many songwriters use humor to address some of life’s most difficult truths. Join a museum educator on Zoom to write a song as a group in this introductory workshop. Music professional Adam Ollendorff will teach the fundamentals of songwriting, including form, theme, and rhyme scheme. Via chat, participants will share ideas and write an original song inspired by Kacey Musgraves’s light-hearted “Family Is Family,” which she wrote with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne. Ollendorff has toured as a member of Musgraves’s band, and his songs have been recorded by Will Hoge and Keb’ Mo’. Presented in support of the exhibit Kacey Musgraves: All of the Colors.
