The Art of Collaboration

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Writing with other music creators can yield artistic and financial fruits. In this panel, hit country writers discuss the process of collaboration. They’ll talk about how to balance writing alone versus writing with others, and delve into the psychology and people skills involved. Our panelists will also weigh in on working with recording artists, and what it takes to transition from writing for yourself to writing with - and for - others.

Deana Carter

 Deana Carter defied conventional expectations and shot to the top of the country charts upon the release of her 1996 debut, Did I Shave My Legs For This?, melding the popular appeal of country music with folk and a retro-rock edge. The daughter of famed studio guitarist/producer Fred Carter, Jr., Deana grew up in a musical environment. After graduating from the University of Tennessee, she learned the guitar and began to write songs and earned a writing deal with Polygram, which led to a record deal with Capitol Records. After hearing one of her demo tapes, Willie Nelson asked her to perform at Farm Aid VII in 1994, making her the only female artist on the bill. By the end of 1996, her debut album was at the top of the country charts and had crossed over to the pop charts, going gold. Carter followed up her debut success with Everything\'s Gonna Be Alright, I\'m Just a Girl, Greatest Hits, The Story of My Life, and The Chain.

JT Harding

 Born an orphan, JT Harding gravitated towards music for as long as he can remember. Endless hours of singing along to the radio and watching MTV convinced him to put together a band and start writing songs. After grinding through the regular rock band regimen of rehearsals and high school gigs in Michigan, Harding ran away to Los Angeles as a teen. While working at a record store he answered an ad to be on VH-1\'s Rock N\' Roll Jeopardy and won! The prize money was used to record his first demo that made its way into the hands of rock superstar Marilyn Manson, who offered Harding a job as his personal assistant on tour. He traveled the globe with Manson. Members of Linkin Park overheard Harding working on his music during some \'down time\' backstage. Even though the songs were only simple acoustic renditions, the band asked him to be their opening act for the next show. Thanks to the Linkin Park tour exposure, this Cinderella storyline segued into both record and publishing deals. Harding\'s first single \'(I\'m Gonna) Party Like a Rockstar\' has lit up request lines and raced up the charts, creating an incredible buzz at radio stations and on the internet. It is the theme song for the HBO show Cathouse. Recently, he co-wrote the Double Platinum single \'Smile\' by Uncle Kracker. In addition, he co-wrote the hit song... Read More →
