SongwritingWith:Soldiers brings together professional songwriters who are masters in the art of collaboration. They bring years of experience to this work. Many of them have won Grammy awards, written #1 songs or had their songs on albums that sold millions of copies.

Here are just a few of our writers and the list continues to grow:

Bonnie Bishop, Michael Bradford, Gary Burr, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Jay Clementi, Ashley Cleveland, Marshall Crenshaw, David Forman, Radney Foster, Mary Gauthier, James House, Will Kimbrough, JD Martin, Georgia Middleman, Gary Nicholson, Brad Parker, Terry Radigan, JD Scott, Maia Sharp, Darden Smith, Amy Speace, Greg Trooper and Monte Warden.

Collaborative songwriting is powerful and demanding. At our retreats, songwriters take the service members’ words, their stories and phrases and together with the participant craft the lyrics.

Melodies are created on the spot. The participants want their story told. The writers want to tell the truth. The resulting songs are collaborations in the purest sense.

After the retreats, all the participants are registered with ASCAP as co-writers of their songs.
