Joshua Birdsong, GRAMMY Camp Nashville

As a songwriter, there is nothing more inspiring than to watch an artist who has pursued their craft at the highest caliber.  The GRAMMY Camp Field Trip to Music Row presented this incredible opportunity. It was an honor and privilege to have a Q and A with Brett James and Hillary Lindsey, who have been recognized as the top songwriters in the Nashville Songwriting Industry, as well as watch the process of their songs being recorded.  In minutes, we witnessed their songs develop from vocals and guitar to complete instrumentation, as they collaborated with the studio musicians to produce their full demo. We stood in the studio where some of the most iconic songs of all time have been written and recorded.  It was everything a songwriter aspires to become.  GRAMMY Camp provides young musicians these valuable experiences and opportunities, and motivates to continue pursuing their art and passion.  It inspired me to take up this craft.
