Why We Write (podcast)

I had a great conversation with writer Kim Ruehl for her Folk Alley podcast “Why We Write” a few weeks ago. The episode is out today and we covered all manner of topics, from failure to the importance of rhyme, and much more. You can listen at Folk Alley.

More from Kim:

Gretchen Peters has earned enough accolades and awards that one could easily tout the success of her songwriting by listing all those things. But the true success of a song is how it hits the listener in the heart, and Peters is certainly expert at that, as well. In addition to the numerous songs she’s written for Nashville stars, she has also penned a great many for herself, earning the respect of fellow songwriters as she goes. She also teaches songwriting, and her songwriting workshops are well worth your time, whether you are trying to make a living in songwriting or whether you just have some thoughts and feelings that you’d like to get out in that way.

When I started doing this podcast, Gretchen Peters was one of the first artists I knew I had to talk to. I always learn a great deal about the art and craft of songwriting whenever she opens her mouth. So, sit back and enjoy this episode of Why We Write, featuring Gretchen Peters.
