Have you ever wanted to write a song? Join a professional songwriter to learn about songwriting and contribute to an original song in this introductory workshop. Music professional Tim Fagan will share the fundamentals of songwriting, including form, theme, and rhyme scheme then guide a group songwriting experience inspired by the music of Chris Stapleton. Fagan wrote “Lucky” with Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz, which won a Grammy for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.

Recommended for ages 7 and up, but all are welcome.

Offered in support of Chris Stapleton: Since 1978, presented by Ram Trucks, an exhibition that explores the award-winning artist’s musical journey—from his Kentucky roots and success as a Nashville songwriter to his rise to stardom as one of country music’s most powerful and unique voices.
